Serial killer movies are interesting to say the least. Interesting, not just from storytelling point of view but also because of the fact that they are so popular despite its central subjects almost always being vile. My theory on the reason of their popularity is that they help fill deep, dark holes that are inside all of us. In a way, we are relieved — and thus entertained — that we are not “them”. Also, the mystery of serial killers have always fascinated mankind. Why does someone chooses to kill innocent people? That’s what evokes our curiosity.
