On July 14, 1966 the incredibly crazy Richard Speck took 9 student nurses hostage in their home and only one lived to tell about it. Richard beat, raped and stabbed each girl on by one. Corin Nemic from the television series "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" plays Speck with his acne scarred face and dirty wife beater stained in sweat and grime.
This true story showed a bit of him acting goofy and stealing his neighbors truck. The Judge let's him off again and he decides to head to Chicago and try his luck there. This movie is about one of the most dramatic mass murders in American history and somehow manages to be boring.
I felt like this movie was dragging on endlessly and the end was no where near in sight. For being one of the bloodiest crimes in history there wasn't much of anything in this movie that was red. Tony Todd from "Candyman" even fails to liven up this drab film that took me two days to get thru.
Nemic is about the only thing in "Chicago Massacre" that stands out and makes you take notice as he endlessly downs his booze to the point of being in a stupor. I was so glad when he finally was caught, I couldn't take another dull moment of this tragedy of a flick. It just lulled on forever in a steady state of nothingness.
The end when they show Richard Speck in jail with his lover has to be the best part of the entire story. Learning of his quirky habits put some spunk in there after all. I won't be watching this again any time soon I can tell you that much. This is one project from LionsGate that fails miserably at combining any tense or scary elements to hold you there rooted to your seat.
