K – Top Ten Serial Killers in Film

Blogging from A-Z

I remember reading Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas when it came out and was fascinated by not only the mind of the serial killer but the race to find him before he killed again. Nowadays I just can’t stomach the ones in real life but still love reading about the fictional one or watching them on the big screen.

  1. John Doe in Se7en
  2. Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs
  3. Patrick Bateman in American Psycho
  4. Norman Bates in Psycho
  5. Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley
  6. Doctor in The Bone Collector
  7. Not telling in So I Married an Axe Murderer  (one of those college movies I have a soft spot for)
  8. Detective in Kiss the Girls
  9. Mickey & Mallory in Natural Born Killers
  10. Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Who are some others that come to mind?

    I’ve seen most of the movies you mentioned, but not all. Psycho – great movie. And I loved I Married an Axe Murderer (plus I remember the killer). Kiss the Girls and Se7en – yep, great choices.

    My fave serial killer onscreen but not the big one is Dexter. Great show. Also the Netflix series Mindhunter is great. I don’t think I could handle American Psycho and I haven’t seen the Talented Mr. Ripley. Loved So I Married an Axe Murderer. Classic comedy. Still rewatch from time to time.
