Now for that spoiler-free lowdown on THE LAST VICTIM from BIZARRE’s notorious FILM EDITOR and your CUT! HOST, BILLY CHAINSAW.
“Fans of true crime docudramas will go nuts over this riveting journey into the mind of killer clown, John Wayne Gacy – who was executed in 1994 for the rape and murder of 33 young men.
Based on Jason Moss’s non-fiction book of the same name, it’s a stark recollection of how the author began corresponding with the incarcerated nutjob as part of his college thesis. Posing as a troubled young street hustler from a dysfunctional family, the then 18 year old quickly forged a bond with Gacy. Unfortunately it was one that almost destroyed him.
While Gacy’s already been the subject of several features, what sets director Svetozar Ristovski’s slow-burning thriller apart is its focus on the killer’s psychological make-up rather than his heinous acts. Tapping into his deranged brain proves far more disturbing and involving than a bunch of gory re-enactments, filling you with a sense of dread that increases as the tension between the two protagonists mounts. Of course, a narrative based on the long-distance relationship between these complex characters, and the mind games they play, relies heavily on the key actors’ performances, and it’s here that the film excels: The Devil’s Rejects’ William Forsythe is menacingly powerful as Gacy, while The Uninvited’s Jesse Moss’s transformation from arrogant student into someone with homicidal tendencies is as credible as the overall project.”
