Here’s the deal: the notion of a serial killer is not a modern one. Jack the Ripper, while arguably the most famous serial killer, is not modern either. The aim of … Continue reading

natural-born-killers-1994-movie-7

SYNOPSIS: Two victims of traumatized childhoods become lovers and psychopathic serial murderers irresponsibly glorified by the mass media. REVIEW: It was 1994, and I had been anticipation seeing Oliver Stone’s latest creation titled “Natural Born Killers“.

I was correct on those issues but was not ready for the “kind” of film that played … Continue reading

REVIEW: Let us talk about the giant mess that was By the Devil’s Hands. Though honestly I’m a bit at a loss as to where to even start. There was just so MUCH that was wacky going on here.

seven-header
