Same as a roasted piglet. Boys and girls taste about the same when you roast them 8 to 10 years old. The flavor is a shade different when they’re teenagers. The boys are gamier than the girls. Give me the roasted meat of a boy age 14 and a girl age 14 and I can tell the difference when you use a spicy sauce.

5 True Crime-y Movies I love that no one has heard of

The Cell - A serial killer is found comatose, with his last victim still alive but being held in a slowly filling water tank at an unknown location. To find her, the police enlist a psychologist who has a machine enabling her to go inside the killer’s mind. The art direction is the best thing about this movie, provided by the late Eiko Ishioka.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer - Based loosely on Henry Lee Lucas and Otis Toole, a pair of convicts go on a killing spree. Things get complicated when Otis’ sister comes to stay with them, and she becomes smitten with Henry. Gruesome, bleak, and violent, this is the most realistic depiction of a serial killer I’ve ever seen.

Dark City - A man wakes up in a hotel room’s bathtub with no memory of who he is or how he got there. His doctor calls to tell him there are people looking for him and he must run, but the call is interrupted when the man finds the mutilated corpse of a prostitute next to his bed. Make sure to watch the director’s cut; the theatrical version spoils the twist in the first few minutes. There’s a sci fi element to it as well as crime noir, but that’s what makes it so unique.

M - In pre-Nazi Germany, a child killer terrorizes a city. When the police are unable to catch him, the city’s criminal underground takes matters into their own hands. It’s black and white, all the dialogue’s in German, and it has no musical score, because it was made in 1931, but it’s the movie that made horror icon Peter Lorre famous and boy is it good. Can be found in HD on YouTube, since it’s now in the public domain.

Martin - Young Martin has come to stay with his elderly, superstitious cousin, who insists Martin is a vampire. The cousin’s granddaughter doesn’t believe it, of course, but then she didn’t see him break into the cabin of a woman on the train, drug her, slit her wrist with a razor, and drink her blood. Is Martin really a creature of the night, or is he just sick? Extremely low budget film from 1978 made by none other than George Romero is virtually impossible to find on DVD, but several versions are on YouTube in varying degrees of low quality (and aspect ratio). Still worth it if you can stand the horribly ugly 70’s decor.

Have you heard of the book "Frustrated Witness" by Willis Morgan? I don't know whether you know about the Adam Walsh-case, Otis Toole and the whole story, but obviously Morgan "saw" Jeff at the shopping mall where the boy was abducted on the very day Toole supposedly kidnapped Walsh, and concludes that it was actually Jeff who killed him. This is the weirdest thing I've ever heard. What do you think?

There’s quite some evidence that places jeffrey in the vicinity of where that boy disappeared. But I agree with det. Kennedy on this - it doesn’t seem like Dahmer’s mo at all. He was not attracted to children and the fact that the head was discarded also does not fit with his motive of keeping people. Dahmer denied his involvment as well. 

anonymous asked:

Are there any serial killer couples who didn't turn on eachother once caught?

James and Susan Carson, Henry Lee Lucas and Otis Toole and David and Catherine Birnie are probably the only serial killer couples I know of that didn’t sell each other down the river. Oh, and Fred and Rose West, but that’s because Fred killed himself.
