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 ›
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.
