Movie Info

Following in the footsteps of Ed Gein, Speck, Dahmer and Gacy, travel back to Los Angeles, California, between 1977 and 1979, and reexperience the stomach-turning crimes of one of modern history's most notorious serial killers: Kenneth Bianchi, better known as The Hillside Strangler. This gripping and terrifying thriller - helmed by director Chris Fisher - approaches the events as docudrama, framing the tale with an interview between psychiatrist Samantha Stone (Brittany Daniel) and Bianchi (portrayed by Clifton Collins, Jr.), and periodically flashing back to study - in graphic detail - Bianchi's grisly murder spree.

Bad horror movies are one thing, but bad horror movies that exploit real-life murders to make a few bucks... Ugh, that's just creepy.

Audience Reviews for Rampage: The Hillside Strangler Murders

I was hoping for some insight into the mind of a serial killer. What I got was endless drug use (even by the psychiatrist and the asst. district attorney), gratuitous nudity and promiscuity. The focus was more on the shrink, and there was very little about the killer. Nothing positive to say about this movie.

Classy, stylish, alternate take on the famous serial killer case. I liked this direct to DVD independent better than The Hillside Strangler. A police psychiatrist is assigned to render a confession, but instead decides to mind-probe a shady suspect who may or may not be the victim of a frame, and who may or may not be who he claims to be .

Another interesting concept in a movie gone awry. The film certainly had potential, but it gets bogged down by too many storyline tangents. The acting is fine, and the feel of the 1970's is surprisingly good. Misguided direction. Too much talk, not enough action.
