Movie Reviews

S.M. | Louisiana | 03/19/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Based on the true story of serial killer Robert Ramirez, Nightstalker falls way short of truly providing us the real accounts of Ramirez and his murder spree. Even with crazy special effects that make you wonder if there is something wrong with your DVD player, this movie is just plain weird. The acting isn't bad and I've seen much worse movies so that's the reason for my 2 star rating. I just wish this movie would have given us more details of the man himself. It fails to deliver a true story like movies such as Ted Bundy, Dahmer, Ed Gein and Gacy. I was disappointed with this film."
Complete and Utter Crap

"So far ive seen Dahmer, Bundy, Ed Gein and Gacy. The first 3 were great low budget realistic true to life accounts of the serial killers and their lives. The fourth which was Gacy was true to life but sucked. I never thought this would be worse than Gacy , but this takes the cake.

I dont think ive ever seen a film this bad. This film is based on serial killer satanist Richard Ramirez '' The Nightstalker''. A psychotic drug addict possessed by demons who spends his night looking for blood. To sum up the film, half of it is spent showing Richard Ramirez in his car from the face down, We dont even get to see his face until the end. Hes in his car having crazy drug trips, flashing lights , heads shaking back and forth, psychedelic trips, Idiot cops trying to find him. The plot is horrible. The other serial killer movies are at least ''true to life'' and based on real events. Most of this film isnt even true to life.

All I can say is go buy Ed Gein, Bundy, Dahmer. They were good movies with good actors. This is truly one of the worst ive ever seen, If i were you I wouldnt even pay a penny for it."

"I am a true crime/serial killer fanatic. I have not once been able to find a serial killer movie that can portray them correctly. The ending is completely wrong. Ramirez was chased down by a guy after attempting to steal a car."
