In 1980, John Wayne Gacy (William Forsythe of TV's BOARDWALK EMPIRE) was convicted of the rape and murder of 33 boys and young men - many of whom he buried beneath his suburban Chicago home. Thirteen years later, ambitious criminology student Jason Moss (Jesse Moss of TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL) began a bizarre correspondence with the serial killer by posing as a vulnerable gay teen. What followed was a nightmare journey into a world of violence, madness, and sexual depravity that brought home the true horror of Gacy's crimes. Hailed by Maxim as a "true-life SILENCE OF THE LAMBS," the film is a chilling true story based on the best-seller that detailed an 18-year-old's terrifying relationship with the most notorious mass murderer in American history.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

This was a very good film. This young man, Jason Moss, decides to write a college paper on convicted murderer, of 33 young boys and men, John Wayne Gacy. Jason thinks he can handle Gacy, and get him to confess. But he is hardly a match for Gacy. There are many surprise twists and turns in this film as young Jason falls under this killer's spell.
Watch past the credits, for an update on Jason Moss's life.
This is a true story.

Intriguing idea that doesn't really play well on the screen. Serial killer John Gacy is set to be executed soon. Jason Moss, a criminology student, decides to begin a correspondance with the killer, posing as a vulnerable gay teen. What begins is a sorta cat and mouse game, but who is the cat and who the mouse? Frankly I didn't really care. Forsythe plays Gacy well, with the right amount of hostility just underneath the sheen of civility. But he is unlikable and we can't wait for him to die. As for Moss, he isn't all that likable either. So if the audience doesn't care about the two leads in a movie, something has gone wrong. Don't waste your time. Pass on this.
