"22.9. Blu-ray Viehättävä b-elokuva, jossa yölliset hyökkäyskohtaukset ovat erittäin tehokkaita ja selvästi vaikuttaneet suuresti myöhempiin elokuvantekijöihin. Pelkästään näiden vuoksi jo katsomisen arvoinen. Kertjoan käyttö vakavasti otettavan true crime -elokuvan vuoksi hihityttävät ja koomiset kevennykset raivostuttavat, mutteivät kuitenkaan kokonaisuutta ainakaan minulle pilaa. Tieto, ettei murhaajaa koskaan saatu kiinni, luo kohtauksiin kivasti toivottomuutta, eikä help"

“Realmente quería que me gustara esta película, tiene una atmósfera muy tétrica, un antagonista que es realmente inquietante y que marca una presencia y un sentimiento de temor en el espectador.

La actuación es muy buena, y aunque los personajes sean bastante simples, sí llegas a simpatizar con ellos y a lamentarte cuando por ejemplo los policías sienten una impotencia al no poder atrapar al asesino.

Y sientes una tensión por las victimas porque no sabes sí sobrevivirán o no.

Las escenas de los homicidios son bastante buenas porque además no son exageradas ni absurdas, sino que son realistas y tal vez eso le da un mayor efecto perturbador, el pensar que alguien puede esperar por ti o meterse a tu casa sin que lo presientas, es algo inquietante y creo” read more

"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."
