In the final episode of California Screaming month, we bring you an all new installment of Christopher & Eric’s True Crime Movie Time. This time they’re opening the vaults and blowing the dust off some ¾” video cassettes — otherwise known as scrolling through pages on Paramount + — to serve up this creaky, sanitized and maybe-not-quite accurate TV movie, THE CASE OF THE HILLSIDE STRANGLERS. After the crash course in serial killer depravity offered by their previous episode on the notorious LA serial killers, how does this dramatization hold up? A serial spree killing investigation that incorporates romantic intrigue and the distraction of a young Billy Zane’s questionable mustache and wig, it leads us into an interesting discussion of why some horrifying true crime stories get the sophisticated big screen treatment and some do not. Most importantly, find out what part of the country the True Crime Movie Time Summer Film Festival is headed to next!
