When you browse movies and see a name like Kane Hodder it’s a safe bet that if you rent or stream the movie you are already aware, at least psychologically that people are going to die and it will most definitely not be pretty.
Although it is a safe bet with the iconic star who is most memorable in his roles as Jason Voorhees and the Bayou Beast Victor Crowley (Hatchett) the kills will be creative even when he is tasked with portraying real life slashers Ed Gein and BTK Dennis Raider.
What if you are not prepared for the violence of real life serial killers that proves looks are deceiving or even worse as previously reviewed with the movie Dahmer the actor in the featured role is most well known as not just a traditional “good guy” but a super hero? Jeremy Renner, who starred in Dahmer early in his career is obviously not known as Dahmer, but as Hawkeye in the Marvelverse movies, Thor, Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also was the main star in the four installment of the Bourne series and costars alongside Tom Cruise in the two latest installment of the megastar’s Mission Impossible franchise.
So when the average movie goer were to stream a movie thinking that like Zodiac starring Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey, Jr, his co-stars in the Avengers as the detective and the targeted reporter, he is, as you will later read in the Dahmer review that is not the case.
Now, what if it wasn’t an actor playing a beloved super hero but one known as a sex symbol or for their grace and beauty? This is where we begin our next series of movies. First we jump into San Francisco during the 1960s and 1970s where we see Robert Downey, Jr in a very over the top role as he seeks to help Mark Ruffalo catch the elusive Zodiac Killer, then we jump into the golden age of film to check out what Josh Hartnett, a horror movie alum, knows about Elizabeth Short, also known as the Black Dahlia, before the review takes a dramatic turn into the beautiful and the bad.
Soap Opera turned reality show sex symbol Antonio Sabato, Jr plays one of the most notorious serial killers the United States has ever seen. Then, of course who could ever forget the beautiful and glamorous Charlize Theron’s drastic change as she takes on the visage of one of the first well known female serial killers, Aileen Wurnos, whose co-star Christina Ricci inspired this take on True Tuesday.
