Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"The Texarkana Moonlight Murders A spate of murders in the 1940s, called the Texarkana Moonlight Murders, were carried out by the so-called Phantom Killer. Over a ten week period, the Phantom Killer murdered eight people... and the culprit was never found. Shudder."

Here the comedy is so light and silly that it just ruins the mood of the film. Still, the scenes with the phantom killer are brilliant, an"
