I thought this would be a fascinating movie, and honestly I've never given any thought to touring the places where serial killers have lived or killed, although if I think about it I do know there is a tour of where Jeffery Dahmer killed and lived in Detroit so I guess it isn't a new thing. Unfortunately I was incredibly disappointed in this movie. It delved too deeply into the psyche of Jim and there were moments where he was with Melanie Griffiths character that seemed like they were unnecessary to the film. There were moments when I was very confused as to what was going on, and who the story was really following, Jim or Carl. Their stories at one point intertwine so much I'm not sure who's flashback is being shown.
This movie could have been a lot more interesting if it showed Jim at more of the places that Carl had killed and if it had explored each of their characters a little more in depth. Honestly, I would have liked more in the film about dark tourism.
One thing I can say is that the ending was a little unexpected, there is a point in the movie where Jim's life can go one of two ways, and while I did wonder if some of what was happening was a dream or hallucination, I thought that while the ending was an interesting twist it was also a cop-out.
You might only want to watch this if you are bored and want something a little twisted.
