Who do you have to kill to get a Major Motion Picture made of you??

Forget all those Made-For-TV and Direct-To-Video movies about killers. While some are pretty good and some outright suck balls, they weren't in the movie theaters! Shit, even Manson wasn't made into a theatrical movie, and he's the complete epitimany of evil!

Of all the serial and mass murderers out there, David Fincher decided to make a film about the Zodiac Killer. Nobody even knows who it was! David, why that series of crimes, when there are better subject matters out there to tackle.

Oh, I forgot. They did make a movie about the Boston Stranger, starring Tony Curtis and Henry Fonda. That wasn't a bad flick.

But I just wish there were Grade-A quality films out there, instead of the ones found in the bargain bin.

And even some of the better quality Made-For-TV movies aren't even available to own! Where's "Murder In The Heartland" starring Tim Roth as Charles Starkweather?

I kind of hope David Fincher, with his great talents, decides to return to the same realm as Zodiac. He could really do a great series of films on notorious figures. I'm sure he'd be bored, doing the same shit, different killer, but a guy can hope.

...and before you throw me the documentary film "Manson," remember it wasn't a movie. Also, forget about that one by Spike Lee about Son of Sam. That film was horrible, and it hardly had anything to do with David Berkowitz. Hardly.

Would you say he has a plethora of evil?

the film is called SUMMER OF SAM and it's about how the Son of Sam effected NYC not about Berkowitz himself. also, it's brilliant.

Well, First Officer Murdoch killed a couple of passengers and they made one of the top boxoffice films of all time about him. I'd have thought that would have made you very happy.

You could start knocking off celebrities. That would make for an interesting movie.

I have no desire to ever see a movie about Robert Bardo. Not unless it included his being stabbed 11 times by a death-row inmate many years later. Of course he survived that but it would make for a good ending.

Does From Hell count as a "Grade-A quality films out there, instead of the ones found in the bargain bin"? What about In Cold Blood or Monster?

Nice to see appreciation for the fantastic Summer of Sam.

Sheesh. You'll say anything to get Buttmunker to go down on you.

No it's not. It's a clumsy and sloppy soap opera. In other words: a complete mess.

Ed Gein got Silence of the Lambs, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho. All based 100% on his life.

It appears Mandi from Mean Girls 2 is pretty popular; perhaps if someone killed her you'd land a movie deal.

Never heard of that. But The Deadly Tower was a great TV movie on Whitman.

Only if it's not animated, more than 2 hours, and are rated R...that's what a movie is...that's what they tell me.
