This is an unbelievably bad film. Its only redeeming features are the snippets of actual killer Gary Ridgeway's police interviews that are ocassionally spliced into the film's tawdry, fictionalized action scenes. I hadn't known this footage of Gary Ridgeway existed. A documentary consisting only of these interviews would have been infinitely more interesting than this trumped up movie.

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.

Let me start out by saying that I am lazy. Never before have I been motivated enough to write a review about anything. 30 minutes into this mess I got up off of my couch to create an amazon account for the sole purpose of reviewing this movie.

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.

The Green River Killer is a remarkable achievement in movie making. It actually succeeds in making a serial killer seem dull and lifeless. You know from the opening credits that this is an ultra-cheapo production as the killer, Gary Ridgeway rests by the bank of the Green River (which looks more like a backwoods creek) and mumbles the names of his victims. Oh look, there's a convenient sign that reads "Green River" posted in the ground every time Ridgeway visits it. Ridgeway is one of America's most notorious serial killers with an admitted body count of four dozen and perhaps more, who eluded capture in the Seattle area for some 20 years. This film totally sucks the life out of his story with an incompetent cast, horrible dialog, and poor production values in every area.

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.

The first thing I'm going to say is that if you have any interest in this topic, spend your money on "The Hunt for the Green River Killer" movie that ran on Lifetime. That movie is much longer, but it was excellent. It also sparked my interest further in the topic and led me to purchase this movie. The first few minutes into this movie I lost interest. The acting is so bad that it seems they hired out-of-work porn actors to do this film. Actually, the acting was even worse than that. The ladies in the movie are alot older than the ones I remember reading about associated with the Green River killings. Although the killer himself has the creepy intensity, it's almost to a point where it reads corny and not believable. He keeps frequenting this one bar and picking up ladies to murder. The movie itself lacks that documentary feel where you feel as if you are watching something unfold. It has more of that "TV show" type feel which doesn't help its impact. I guess I'm pretty big on facts and the portrayal of those facts. Green River Killer gets a "D" on both. The sexual situations are more skanky than scary. I was going to donate this to the library but I think I'll just use it as a beer coaster. Boooooooo!

This film version is very unrealistic and doesn't have the facts straight. This film shows a much-taller killer than Gary Ridgway was. In addition, Ridgway picked up prostitutes along a highway; in this film, he meets him at the same bar over and over. The book, "Green River, Running Red," by author Ann Rule, is definitely more realistic and interesting!!!

This is not the horror or slasher story I expected. This is one of those movies that would have been better if it was "inspired" by actual events instead of being based on them. Gary Ridgway murdered 48 women over a period of 20 years. He dumped the bodies in the same river and picked them up at what appears to be the same bar. He was suspected as being the killer by his associates and he didn't think he would get caught.

There is an abundance of first person narration done by Gary (George Kiseleff) to explain his childhood and the killings. Things were done akin to a docu-drama. Gary didn't stab the women, but strangled them, sometimes with his hands and sometimes with his suspenders...which could have made a better film- remember "Frenzy?". Gary has a creepy son Kevin (Sebastien Szumilas) and a wife (Naidra Dawn Thomson) that doesn't seem to be all there either. Oh the possibilities of a great film squandered.

It is a bad sign when your video producer also plays the bar tender (Nola Roeper). Written, produced, and directed by Ulli Lommel. He was also the detective in the cowboy hat. The movie was also had its share of anachronisms too. Okay, I did like it when he put a cigarette in the dead girls' mouth when he drove her to the river. It had dark comedy potential not exploited.

F-bomb, sex, rape, nudity (Jaquelyn Aurora, Georgina Donovan)
