    Default Man is Wolf to Man- You favourite Serial Killer movies

    1. Zodiac Director's Cut by Fincher
    2. 7even (Fincher again)
    3. True Detective Season One (not a movie but a fantastic mini)

    There's not much after it, is there? I'm curious and hope for recommendations

    Was really looking forward to Lars von Trier's The House that Jack build... ended up not liking it. Matt Dillon did great but the overall plot... just wow. Some of the violence was hard to watch as it should be IMHO

    Lars Von Trier ended up ruining the film with so much tangential narration, just like Nymphomaniac.

    Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer, New York Ripper, Maniac (both original and remake), one of the Ted Bundy movies with the scene he attacks two girls while they were sleeping at night.

    1. Silence of the Lambs

    2. Psycho

    3. This might be a bit controversial- Red Dragon. I actually really liked that film.

    While "Favorite..." is kind of an odd way to phrase this sort of thing?

    Memento

    Don't really want to spoil anything by going into the "Why..."

    1956's The Bad Seed is a good one. The premise of a psychopathic killer being a cute little girl with nice loving parents is pretty slick and surprising for such an old film. The ending is a bit spoilt thanks to 50's audiences needing a "happy" ending, but apparently the original play went with the much better choice of ending. Hardly a favorite per say, but definitely memorable and worth the watch in my opinion.

    Thank you. Especially for those. I will check them out and David Fincher's Mindhunter since I enjoyed (if you can call it that) the book it was based on.

    Thank you but only the Michael Rooker one looks appealing to me, Doc.

    Thank you. Already have seen all of them. I like Manhunter more than Red Dragon but you can't really go wrong with Ed Norton and Ralph Fiennes. Still worth seeking out.

    Out of left field recommendation but it looks appealing in a Serial-Mom-kinda-way

    Most of my favs have been mentioned already, so I'll add:
    -- American Psycho (Christian Bale, Phil Collins)
    -- Copycat (Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter)
    -- Kalifornia (David Duchovny, Brad Pitt, Juliete Lewis & Michelle Forbes)

    Jeez...

    How did I forget about that one?

    Forget about films that are based on this particular topic.

    That scene in the gas station?

    It holds up against "Film..." in general.
