A chilling story based on fact, but the direction and acting seems very contrived in parts. A good movie for a wet afternoon.
Before Bundy, before Manson and before Dahmer, Charles Starkweather accompanied by his 14 year-old girlfriend Caril, terrorised America with a brutal killing spree that horrified the entire country.
Their serial killing spree resulted in 11 horrific murders, as they unleashed their wrath throughout the states of Nebraska and Wyoming.
Charles Starkweather's life inspired such film classics like: BADLANDS, NATURAL BORN KILLERS, TRUE ROMANCE and KALIFORNIA. Starring Lance Henriksen (from TV's Millennium, Alien Vs Predator), Starkweather is the true story of America's most notorious teenage killer.
