Movie Info

The disturbing tale of the depraved serial killer known as B.T.K. (bind-torture-kill) comes to the screen in this true crime shocker starring Kane Hodder. Dennis Rader (Hodder) was a true wolf in sheep's clothing. An upstanding citizen and family man who served as president of his Wichita, Kansas church, Rader was a trusted member of his community who worked as a security officer. But just beneath Rader's carefully crafted, suburban father façade lurked a malevolent alter ego, a killer without a conscience who never distinguished between men, women, and children when his murderous rage took hold. Inspired by actual events, B.T.K. takes us into the terrifying world of a madman who kept his dark secret from becoming public for over thirty years.

Iron Maiden should sing a song called Bring Kane Hodder to the Slaughter. I've never been a fan of the low budget, based on a true story, serial killer film. It seems the filmmakers usually care a lot more about the subject than I ever will. I gave this one a chance because I remember being fairly interested in the BTK story when I saw it on 60 minutes or something like that. The main interesting thing seemed that it was a serial killer who retired to start a family and lead a good life and then was drawn back to killing. Sounds interesting doesn't it? Could be an examination of good and evil and it's constant struggle within men's souls, a character drama about an extremely sick man trying to outrun his twisted desires or even a complex police procedural/serial killer film. I'm sure none of those even entered the producer's heads as they went off to make a movie about a dude, played by Kane Hodder, killing women. To bad, this could have been a good film if anyone had any ambition.
