Movie Info

From October 2-25, 2002, the capital of the United States was held in a grip of terror by a pair of elusive snipers whose targets were seemingly selected at random. During this period, no gas station, convenience store, or highway was safe from the relentless killers, throwing a nation already reeling from the cataclysmic events of 9/11 into a frenzy of panic and conclusion-jumping. Among those heading the efforts to track down the snipers was Charles Moose, police chief of Montgomery County, AL. Unable to give anything but fragmentary information at the various press conferences held during the 23 dark days, Moose found himself vilified and derided in many corners as ineffectual and incompetent. Indeed, quite a few newspapers outside the area targeted by snipers came right out and called for Moose's resignation. But the chief's dogged persistence ultimately paid off -- and in the sort of twist that a professional writer of thrillers might dismiss as inconceivable, the two men arrested for the carnage turned out to be the archetypal "least likely suspects." Originally telecast October 17, 2003, on the USA Network, the made-for-cable feature D.C. Sniper: 23 Days of Fear stars Charles S. Dutton as the beleaguered Charles Moose and Bobby Hosea and Trent Cameron as alleged snipers John Allen Muhammad and John Lee Malvo (whose murder trials had just gotten under way when the film first aired).

Audience Reviews for D.C. Sniper: 23 Days of Fear


The motive behind this father and dad killer team is NOT known. I never knew the story behind the DC killers. Now I have some idea. Ok movie, terribly TV though. The ending is pure syrup but understandable for a film like this. D.C. Sniper: 23 Days of Fear (also known as Sniper: 23 Days of Fear in Washington D.C.) is a 2003 T.V. movie created by USA Network based on the Beltway sniper attacks of 2002. [img]http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTPMTrYTFOHmiA6IJwVQj_VC1Fywj4P2pR_PBGUyB4sx06RqLI_[/img] NOTES; D.C. Sniper: 23 Days of Fear originally aired on the USA Network on October 17, 2003, just as John Allen Muhammad and John Lee Malvo's murder trials were getting underway. The films chronicles the period when John Allen Muhammad (played by Bobby Hosea) and Lee Boyd Malvo (played by Trent Cameron) went on a serial killing spree in October 2002 in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland, all parts of the Washington Metropolitan Area, the entire area of which was held in a "grip of terror."
