Editorial Reviews

He was a father, a husband, a preacher… and a serial killer – step inside the mind of one of the nation’s most twisted murderers in this gripping retelling of the BTK killer’s reign of terror. In 2005, after a 30-year hunt, the Wichita, Kansas, police finally apprehended one of the most elusive serial killers of the century – right in their own backyard. A dogcatcher named Dennis Rader stood accused of murdering at least ten women in the late 60s and early 70s and then disappeared. In 2005, BTK suddenly resurfaced – and the killings began again. Bind. Torture. Kill

The only reason I don't rate this as a no star or even 1/2 star movie is because it isn't an option on Amazon. I bought this film while serving in Iraq, where the only thing we had to do much of the time was watch DVDs, and still didn't even finish the thing. Troops in combat zones will watch almost anything, no matter how B-level or low budget as long as there is a coherent plotline but this looks like someone spent about $500 bucks on everything including crappy camera equipment and actors and edited the movie (and I use that term loosely) on their pc before releasing it. My title stands, if you're thinking of buying this movie don't and if you bought it don't open it so that when you return it you can get your money back with no hassle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you serious? October 28, 2006
I think more money was invested in packaging than in any other part of this movie. The camera had to be a piece of crap, the lighting was atrocious (shadows were everywhere...especially where they shouldnt be), and the script was probably written in under 2 hours. And where did they get those terrible actors? You could almost see them reading q-cards taped to the wall. Ive seen better actors in local car dealership commercials. And the constant footage of animal slaughter added nothing to the movie, except for making it impossible for your stomach to accept any type of snack while watching this lame excuse for a film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible October 15, 2006
By Rick M.
Save your money! I have sat through some terrible movies, but this one takes the cake. There is no plot. It is a below-low budget movie that looks as if it was recorded on a cell phone. The character on the movie basically repeats the exact same thing with three or four different victims, and the whole time we are subjected to slaughterhouse footage. There is no way to really even know what is being done in the scene at hand. Even the Henry movie, and Dahmer look like 5 star movies compared to this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even good for lulz. November 30, 2006
I recently deployed to Iraq. I found this DVD in the nightstand of the rooms us military stay in. Someone forgot or left it. It didn't look very good to me, but I eventually ended up watching it. I think I only watched the whole thing because I was in shock that something sucked as bad as this movie.

The movie opens with something that you won't want to watch, even if you like gore-porn. The rest of the movie shows either BTK at home talking about nothing interesting with his wife, writing retarded poetry in junkyards, or some stupid journalist type stuff.

This is all presented with the worse editing ever... ever! The camera used to film this was obviously a JVC VHS comcorder manufactured in 1989.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than I expected. June 8, 2006
After seeing Lommel's "Zodiac Killer", which I actually thought was a pretty good film as long as you disregard the cheap looking picture quality, I didn't think "BTK Killer" would be as bad as most other reviewers said it was. Unfortunately, while "Zodiac Killer" had a plot, this "BTK Killer" does not. It consists of a number of bad murder scenes with lots of padding in between them.

Ulli Lommel has made some good films and some bad ones, so you never quite know what to expect. Take my word for it; this is not one of the good ones.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST MOVIE EVER September 17, 2006
It should have negative five stars. Terrible script, terrible directing, terrible acting. It does look like amateur video, as another reviewer said. Absolutely not worth your time as all it does is recreate the killer's crimes on videotape, complete with lame dialogue. No police investigation, no analysis, just voyeurism -- like a 70's porn flick only with violence -- and the cherry on top is that footage of the crimes is interspersed with footage of animals being slaughtered.

Stay away. Stay far away.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Sucks! May 22, 2006
I rented this DVD because as others have said, the cover looks pretty decent, but that is the best you are getting from this DVD.... The Movie is the worst thing i've ever seen, Terrible Actors, Terrible Video Quality (it looks like an amateur home video), the only "rescuable" thing is the music, and it's only a so so thing. Dont buy this! Besides its expensive.. I would pay 1 dollar tops, and thats with shipping included.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. From Start to Finish. Melt It Down. May 23, 2006
What a piece of junk this movie is. The cover looks great, and on the cover it mentions the BTK Killer movie is from the director of Boogeyman. Cool, I thought, I wanna see this!

From the outset, I knew I had made a mistake. The acting was laughable, horrible really, worse than you would see at your local high school play, and I think the video camera they shot the film with can be bought here on Amazon for less than ten bucks in the "children's toys" section. Honestly. This movie is that horrible.

The story of BTK is truly interesting, but the director here tried to make it... ummmm... I have no clue what he was doing. Other than some quoting of actual BTK poems, one familiar with BTK would have no idea that this 'movie' is based on real events. It certainly does not portray the Dennis Rader (BTK's real life name) I have come to know.

I couldn't believe the average review is 2 stars. I am angry I had to give this movie a one star rating. The way I see it, I am now owed four stars, because I would honestly give BTK Killer a negative three stars on a one to five scale. To waste any time or money on this movie is to have a crime committed against you. I implore you, avoid this piece of garage at all costs. DO NOT BE SUCKERED in by the cover! This movie was junk junk junk! And did I mention how truly cruddy this movie is? I really need to mention that! It is bad bad bad bad bad. I am angry about how bad it is!
