Audience Reviews for Letters From a Killer


It was an ok movie but there just wasn't enough. You can tell it was a direct to dvd movie. There just wasn't enough here to keep you into the film all that much. It's interesting but not easy to pay attention to either. Maybe it was the cast or the direction but there isn't enough in this movie to make it any better then an average or ok movie.
