The Boston Strangler...

OK, so who's watching this on Hulu tonight? I saw the trailer and it looks just scary enough. Plus I have always liked Kiera Knightly.

OK. I watched it tonight and it was very good. In fact the ending of it was completely different than I thought. Good casting too.

Thanks, OP!

I did not know they remade the Boston Strangler. There was some debate as to whether he really was.

This version views it from the perspective of two women reporters. The reporters were real people and the story is true and accurate as far as what they did and what they uncovered. I thought it was excellent.

Really was what?

I can’t remember all the ins and outs of it but he confessed to being the Boston Strangler but they had no proof. This is just a quick search I did on it.

It was decent and Keira was good. Reminded me a lot of She Said. That being said, Keira has better movies of a similar nature like Official Secrets or The Imitation Game which she was Oscar nominated for.

My cousin was in her twenties and going to school in Boston when DeSalvo (or whoever) was going about his business. Every woman in the city was terrified.

And they didn't even offer Jamie Lee Curtis a starring role?

Talk about another Oscar snub !

DeSalvo confessed because he thought he would get interviews and book deals to support his family. Law enforecement fed him most of the info on the murders. He was a pervert but probably not a killer.

His grave isn’t that far away from my house.

R11 It was him. We know for a fact he murdered Mary Sullivan through DNA.
