Storyline

The notorious case of the Hillside Strangler is the basis for this startling thriller directed primarily with an over-used hand-held camera by Chris Fisher (Nightstalker (2002)).

Kenneth Bianchi (Clifton Collins Jr., Capote (2005)), one (along with his cousin Angelo Buono) of the two serial rapists and killers who terrorized the Los Angeles area in the late 1970s, is giving police station interviews to psychiatrist Samantha Stone (Brittany Daniel, White Chicks (2004)) who has disquieting lifestyle issues of her own. It falls to her to delve into the details of the case to determine the veracity of Bianchi's claims of multiple personality disorder, but in so doing, she is forced to relive the horrific crimes, one of which occurs at her very doorstep.

Trying a little... maybe way too hard....
5 January 2006 | by sfeltman05See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie was going to be coming out, I was in great spirits. Clifton Collins Jr has already established himself as one of the fine young actors in Hollywood. On top of that, with his appearance and previous performances, being a psychotic killer would not be too hard for him. Anyway, I thought this was going to be a sweet film, until I saw the co-stars and the failed man who made the film. Brittany Daniel is really hot, but to put in a lady that has worked with David Spade before.. come on. Plus, All the movies Winter has made, have failed. This is not to mention that they have also been about prior serial killer tales. So not only is he using a made story, he does not handle that easy access well. The camera work was actually well done, until I realized after about five minutes that it was always going to be the one circular motion camera around the set. As the movie went on, I couldn't tell if I was getting a headache from the horrible supporters, or if it was the camera-work making me dizzy. Either way, a not so solid 6 is what I gave, just for the sake of Collins because he played his part spectacular as usual, but he really needs to start working with bigger(better) people to get somewhere.
