Dear Mr. Gacy (2010)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
03.03.11

Dear Mr. Gacy (2010) I need to express gratitude to those who recommended me this film, of which I wouldn't have seen otherwise. Frankly, I had no urge to watch "Dear Mr. Gacy", since I have lately been soured by recent straight-to-DVD serial killer related garbage like "Manson: My Name is Evil" and "Raising Jeffrey Dahmer". As it turned out, this was the best serial killer depiction I have seen since Matthew Bright's "Ted Bundy" (my favorite of the cinematic serial killer biopic "boom" to emerge from around the video rentals stores around the early 2000's)...

"Dear Mr. Gacy" recounts the documented correspondence between college student Jason Moss and infamous serial murderer John Wayne Gacy which apparently took place just months before the homosexual madman's death sentence was carried out. Moss initiated a trustful bond with Gacy via personal letters and erotic photographs of himself before their long distance relationship made the leap to phone conversations. Moss' intent was to enter the mind of the killer clown and find out what made him tick. According to the film, Gacy's sexual rants resulted in Moss distancing himself from their friendly contact which prompted Gacy to incite a convincing type of manipulation into the young man's mind which caused him to sink into severe state of paranoia. As Moss came to believe people were watching him and his family, as Gacy had implied, the time came for the two men to meet in person just days before Gacy's execution...

First off, I have never read Jason Moss' book "The Last Victim", which supposedly details his bond with Gacy and how the man was able to impel fear into the young man's mind from behind bars, though some of this movie felt a little embellished. However, William Forsythe as Gacy fuckin' worked! Could not believe it, but he pulled it off! The guy who played Moss was also excellent and highly believable.

There's some real intense moments and an overall engaging story in "Dear Mr. Gacy" that recounts the interaction between Moss and Gacy well (though, like I said, I cannot vouch for the actual FACTS). Jason Moss apparently went on to 'infiltrate' the minds of Richard Ramirez and Henry Lee Lucas before his suicide in 2006. Clearly, you can only absorb SO much psychopathic insight before succumbing to self-destruction...
