Movie Info

A cop sets out to find a man who has been delivering too much of a good thing in this offbeat comedy. Police detective Martinez (Jesus Ochoa) has been handed a most unusual case -- a number of local prostitutes have been murdered, and it's up to Martinez to bring in the killer. What makes the case truly unusual, though, is the manner of death; it seems the hookers all died as a result of having orgasms so powerful they were literally fatal. Teaming up with cultural anthropologist Onofre (Daniel Giménez Cacho), Martinez hits the streets looking for clues, and eventually gets some unexpected help from Father Gorkisolo (Santiago Segura), a priest with a unusually deep knowledge of sexual matters. Asesino en Serio was the first feature film from director Antonio Urrutia; noted Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro served as executive producer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Pasajera y divertida a ratos, se gana el atenderla, pero reconociendo que no termina de ser un mega-orgasmo...

Audience Reviews for Asesino En Serio

2002 Spain/Mexico Director: Antonio Urrutia Score: 6 A serial killer who murders his victims with pleasure. Yes. Using an ancient technique discovered by an archaeologist, the killer murders women by giving them "mega-orgasms". This tongue in cheek production was actually quite comical and though it really pushes ones ability to suspend disbelief, it is meant in fun and so I can forgive it a bit for that. The plot, though it sounds silly when described briefly, actually unfolds pretty well. The acting isn't anything award winning but most of the cast does at least an adequate job. The few special effects used in the movie are ok. The soundtrack wasn't anything memorable. I wouldn't put this film on the top of any "must see" lists, but it isn't one to avoid either. It was a worth a viewing and gave me a few chuckles. Notes: HV-GL-GN-SA Suggested Age: 16+

Some scenes were funny. Actually, the whole script was a joke. Acting wasn't the worst, but most of the movie is just about prostitutes in Mexico City.
