'Dear Mr. Gacy' [Blu-ray]
(William Forsythe, Jesse Moss, Emma Lahana, et al / Blu ray / R / (2005) 2010 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)

Overview: This true-story thriller is based on the experiences of 18-year-old college student Jason Moss and his relationship with notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy. As part of a school assignment, Moss sends a letter to Gacy in prison, portraying himself as a vulnerable kid.

Blu ray Verdict: 'Dear Mr. Gacy' is a 2010 Canadian horror/thriller directed by Svetozar Tistovski and is based on a true story; the non-fiction book The Last Victim, written by Jason Moss.

The story goes that whilst attending college, Jason Moss decided to make the subject of his thesis a unique one. He decided that he'd write on the inner workings of the mind of a serial killer. Hence, Moss chose John Wayne Gacy.

Moss wrote a letter to Gacy posing as a confused and troubled teen who had turned to Gacy for understanding. Moss also sent along a number of provocative photos of himself, posing all sweaty and sans shirt.

This letter would soon spawn a friendship between the college kid and one of the most notorious serial killers in history. But, as Moss continually manipulated Gacy by pretending to be Gacy's friend and confidant, thuings within Moss himself began to blur - the definitions between right and wrong not so clear after a while.

William Forsythe's work in Dear Mr. Gacy is nothing short of amazing! But, that said, he is great in even the schlockiest of movies ie: The Rig! There are a number of scenes in 'Dear Mr. Gacy' where Forsythe plays the role so well, so raw that he makes you turn your head away! Indeed, some of this wonderful, deep performance was just too hard to watch, given the subject matter.

In closing, 'Dear Mr. Gacy' benefits from a fascinating true life premise and a solid performance from Forsyth - see this film today! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Feature of a behind-the-scenes featurette “The Gacy Files: Portrait of a Serial Killer.”
