"Dear Mr. Gacy (Blu-Ray) (2010)" Review

Review: I have been very interested in serial killers ever since I was around 13 and I was given a book called "The Man Who Could Not Kill Enough" which was a book about Jeffrey Dahmer. I love reading about them but I like even more when I can see a film about them and for the most part there is a good hand full of them out there. When I rad across a trailer for this film I got very excited and could not wait to see it. Now this film is different than I was expecting because I did not realize that it wasn't going to revolve around John Gacy murdering people like in the 2002 film "Gacy (starring Mark Holton)", instead it's based off a book that was written by Jason Moss and it chronicles the time that he tried to trick Gacy and get him to open up about his murders by acting like something he is not, but things turn for the worst when he meets the monster face to face.

The biggest part about this film that made me want to see it was the excellent cast, what you get is the very intense acting from William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects, Raising Arizona) as he portrays John Wayne Gacy perfectly. Also you get Jesse Moss who plays as Jason Moss perfectly as well and really does a fantastic job going from a normal guy with a normal life that slowly gets changed by Gacy. Now as far as the story goes, well it get more darker and even more disturbing as the film progresses. There is alot of uneasy moments especially when Gacy goes on about how Jason should get his brother to do sexual acts with him, now that scene is quite disturbing but helps to show how fucked up Gacy really was. On top of an excellent film you also get a pretty cool featurette called "The Gacy Files: Portrait of a Serial Killer" which you get interviews with cast members as well as friends of Gacy! Overall this is an excellent film that stands strong along the side of various other serial killer based film and should not be passed up by any fan of horror!
