The movie doesn't even minimally seem to care about accuracy or authenticity. For example, the extremely amateurish actor who plays Ridgeway doesn't match the real Ridgeway's physical description at all. The real Ridgeway was not a "tall, handsome, muscular" fellow. He was shorter, and unassuming-looking. Also, the majority of Ridgeway's victims were not the glamorous, seasoned barroom prostitutes shown here. They were lonely, struggling teenagers whom he picked up along the Seatac Highway.
If you want a better insight into the character of Ridgeway's victims and crimes, read Ann Rule's book, "Green River, Running Red." In any case, avoid this movie mess.
This might very well be the worst movie I have ever seen. Actually, calling it a movie would be giving it more credit than it deserves. It's a shame because this subject matter would have been a great background for a better writer and director to explore. However, it plays out like a poorly acted episode of America's Most Wanted. Don't waste your time or your 4 bucks on this, you will regret it.
George Kiseleff is the rank amateur in the "starring role", and as you can probably guess, it was his first acting credit and hopefully his last. As Ridgeway he is shown picking up prostitutes at a local tavern and taking them either home or another location to first have sex and then strangle them before dumping their bodies into the Green River. When Ridgeway is questioned by his wife about the strange woman coming out of their bathroom, and later about the police asking questions, he merely mumbles something incomprehensible and rolls over in bed. That's pretty much the way he handles police questioning as well...mumbling and looking stupidly nervous until the police leave. Were the police really that dumb? If they were as dumb in real life as they were in this film, it's no wonder Ridgeway got away with it for 20 years. Oh, and if you're going to have women playing prostitutes, do you think you could find one or two who are actually somewhat attractive? These women are plain ugly.Read more ›
Ok, I have just actually finished this movie. It is not entirely unwatchable, like Zodiac Killer, but is still pretty bad. If you are a casual movie renter who tends to rent the big blockbusters or the movies that just come out nationwide in theaters, I cannot recommend this to you. Like someone else said, the film quality looks like an America's Most Wanted reenactment. The only really grotesque parts of the film that some people would find unwatchable would be the short little flashes of autopsy film, which I believe has nothing to do with the Green River Killer, but is added for shock value. Other than these snippets of autopsies showing bodies being ripped open and skulls being trephinated after the persons scalp has been peeled off and over their face (which is the worst part of an autopsy to watch, actually), the movie is not that graphic. One weird aspect of the film is whenever he goes in the same bar to pick up prostitutes, the film plays like a very bad 80's music video with a dancing serial killer.
In summary, the film as a whole seems to go nowhere, is often repetitive, is not that fun to watch, but is a little enjoyable with some Evan Williams. It gets one star, not zero stars like Zodiac Killer. If you like crappy, bad, unwatchable indie film drivel, then this movie is for you. Everyone else, don't waste your time. I watched it so you don't have to. If you want a decent serial killer film that is fun and actually frightening and creepy to some extent, get "The Devil's Rejects", directed by Rob Zombie.
