""A provocative and surprising thriller." (Fangoria)
Yeah it is surprising, surprising-ly bad. It's also provocative, it provoked me to write this bad review. From the beginning I could tell the director, Chris Fisher, was attempting to create a stylistic film. However, after the third pointless scene of swirling overlapping shots and panning camera work I gave up. If you're using style, have a reason. Style without reason is not style. This film is one thing, if nothing else, a great lesson in how to over use overlapping shots (also known as crossdisolving shots). Drink too much and spin around for 10 seconds and you'll get the same effect as the camera work/editing of the film. There's so much overlapping shots in this film, there's probably 2 1/2 hours of footage on the screen in the 85 minutes that the film is. It's full of tallent, bad tallent. It's more about naked women, sex, and drugs than the actual story. I expected a cheap nock-off of The Life of David Gale. I would have enjoyed that 100 times more that this. This is bad, annoyingly bad. Some moron wanted to make a film and got all hung up editing. Annette Davey, the editor, should have her name removed from the film. Unless, for some unknown reason, she's proud of her work. If I was studio head at Silver Nitrate Entertainment and somone presented me the final cut of this film, I'd have everyone and anyone associated with it fired, immediately without question. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment made a mistake with the distribution of this film. If you enjoy good movies and great camera work, STAY AWAY from this film."

"As someone who is very familiar with the true story of Kenneth Bianchi, the famed serial killer nicknamed The Hillside Strangler, I was very excited to see this movie in my local video store and rented it right away. A truly disappointing movie. This movie gets very boring with us seeing a psychiatrist interviewing Bianchi and trying to understand his mind and why he killed so many women. This movie should not even fall into the horror catagory as it provides us no horror but just boredom. For someone who would like to see the true story of Bianchi, I would suggest viewing Serial Killers... the 3 DVD set. In it, we get to see the real Kenneth Bianchi and the real story of the multiple murders he commited. I recommend no one waste their time viewing this movie for it provides no real insite into the mind of The Hillside Strangler."
Shampage: The "Not So True" Hillside Strangler Murders

"*** SPOILER ALERT *** Based on a true story. LOL. The only basis of truth to this story is the murders happened in California and the murderer's name was Kenneth Bianchi. After that there is no truth. The police keep saying that if they don't have enough evidence to convict him they will have to let him go. When the California court system got a hold of this guy he was already indicted for murder up in Washington State. He was not going to be let go. He never was released nor did he show up at the psychiatrists' house. The shame of it is that this movie has so many untruths about the case that the younger generations of watchers who do not know the true story is going to go on thinking that this is what really happened. If you want to watch one man's fantasy about what might have happened, then go ahead and watch this movie. If you want the facts, stay as far away as you can from this one."

"This is the Hillside Strangler film that everyone was talking about because of Brittany Daniel's nude scenes. Here it is finally released as Rampage: The Hillside Strangler Murders. I rented this picture about a day after it was released on DVD. It's not a great work of art by anymeans, but at under 90 minutes it is fairly watchable. Probably most recommend to fans of Brittany Daniel. She is smokin'"
