Interesting documentary to watch. Unbelievable what a human being can do to others human beings, with no remorse, no conscience and going with daly routine of life like nothing happened. It just prove me that evil exist and can be close to us without knowing it.

It was okay. Some interesting facts for newbies for hearing about it, but there was nothing intriguing to make me want to share it or remember it by. I wish they gave more of a backstory, what kind of people were his victims, why they were his victims, maybe even a transcript of what he told the Officer on his past victims.
All-in-all, pretty boring.

I almost didn't watch this after I checked it out because I thought it might be too disturbing and perhaps exploitative. However, it turned out to be very interesting. Much of the film focuses on those who investigated him and on his neighbors who had to come to terms with what he had done. It was really very touching to learn about some of the survivors.

Nothing new and narrative based on the face interviews of one detective and one neighbor disappointing docu drama.

Was a good movie. Part drama, part true crime. Worth the rental
