Terrible, Corin Nemec is decent as Speck but it's not enough. The dialogue is just the worst dialogue I've heard in a while. It would have been nice had the director chosen to explore more about Speck's past and his motives for the murders. Other than Nemic's performance (which is decent at best) the acting is terrible and the women playing the nurses were annoying as all fucking hell, especially Sondra. She looked like she was reading from a cue card, she had absolutely no emotion at all and her lines are the worst and so is her acting. I did not feel sorry for the nurses at all, which is why they are there, to create some sort of sympathy. Overall a terrible film, it's a shame that most mass murderer/serial killer movies suck. The plot basically writes itself so I don't know why 85% of the movies suck, I'm looking at you Ulli Lommel...you prick. Anyway don't watch it go watch Zodiac.
