Adam Robin Dunne is returning to his hometown after a long absence, in order to rekindle his relationship with his brother Clint Dan Payne. They went on hunts with their father when they were kids, so the plan is to revisit. Ominously, it was warned that the last known person who traveled into these parts to hunt, disappeared. Made for a tiny 1 million Canadian, director Tim Brown makes the most out of his buck. The movie looks terrific in the woods, perfectly lit, and with drone-shot aerials that are simply beautiful.
Brown knows how to build suspense and show as little as possible of the creature in order to keep some mystery. There were a number of perfectly timed edits that would have been jump scares if the audio was timed for it, but are still really effective. The script fro first timer Carey Dickson, however, is where the film falters. Perhaps there was a link there to what was transpiring in present time, but it was lost on me aside from the obvious notes.
Is there a link here? All he had to do was go somewhere and kill. No one This man was very scary. No one would be able to say he bought anything used in a crime. Each kit had money, weapons, gloves, tape etc. He had no contact with the people he killed beforehand. He was from another state. He could fly in and drive elsewhere. And he did this. They feel that the number has to be at least 11 victims, but we only know about 3.
‘DEVIL IN THE DARK’ Review
I may like my real serial killers to be dumber than this. A lot dumber. Israel Keyes idolized Ted Bundy. That is another one that scares me. Except, with less information about Keyes, I have no chance of creating red flags that convince me I never would have trusted this guy. Thankfully, he followed this escalating pattern at the end of his life.
He would not have been caught for a long time without the lack of self control. And this is with more risks to face. Bundy did not have to worry about cell phones, the myriad items we all have that form a type of surveillance, actual intentional surveillance, forensic advances etc. Keyes robbed banks with horrible disguises and did not get caught. Then, he used the cash to finance his real love, serial killing, and he did not get caught. When he did get arrested, it was not because he left behind evidence or anything.
He used a debit card from a victim, which is, in fact, super stupid. But, that doesn't make me feel better because it even manages to feel like he controlled that in some weird way. We only know about 2 of his victims because he told police. And, had he never said a word, there is virtually no way that anyone would have known what happened.
That is not an exaggeration. Events beyond Keyes' control resulted in the demolition of the crime scene a farmhouse which had been long abandoned and left to decay and the bodies are lost forever in a thoroughly scoured landfill. Even this bit of ridiculousness isn't funny: he was actually concerned about his reputation. He wanted no part of this true crime bullshit his words and how people get all obsessed with it. He thought that was terrible. His reputation. See, it would be funny, but Israel Keyes is terrifying.
As for the book I mean there really isn't a lot of info on Keyes yet. This one is well written though. Sticks to facts and flows really well May 08, Daniel Hall rated it liked it. I read this book because I am from the area that the murder in Alaska took place and I followed the story as it was unfolding. It wasn't really that shocking because Anchorage is a city full of crime, violence and drugs in relation to the population.
To walk around Anchorage during a winter night is a foreboding experience if you are aware of the crime statistics occurring in the background around you. The book mostly sticks to the facts and doesn't really indulge in too much of the gossip that I read this book because I am from the area that the murder in Alaska took place and I followed the story as it was unfolding.
The book mostly sticks to the facts and doesn't really indulge in too much of the gossip that was surrounding the case when it happened. Gossip surrounding Bird and other buzz are motives. I also remember there being some controversy about the garnered ransom money, but it isn't mentioned in the book.
[Review] 'Devil in the Dark' is Visually Stunning But Lacks Depth - Bloody Disgusting
Maybe it was nothing and not so interesting to a wider audience. The author goes into a lot of depth about other murders by Keyes that I had no idea about previously. It's well written and engaging up until the last few chapters where it becomes repetitive so I've given it three stars. Strange that in the Amazon kindle version of the book at the end is a little bio of the author with a small picture of him with his face blacked out as if to be censored, what's up with that?

Alaskan Review When Samantha was abducted from the coffee stand in a public parking area, people were genuinely concerned and fearful of the outcome.
There was an outpouring of support from the community, and pressure put on the APD, to find the guy. We all held a collective breath that she might be found alive, and the false leads kept us hopeful.
It was agonizing for her father , friends and co-workers as time went by without resolve.

When the facts were known Alaskans were shocked and horrified to learn the details in this case. The story puts forth the sequence of events, and provides some insights , as best as can be expected about the sociopath Keyes.
He was organized, and methodical, but his spiraling behavior ultimately and fortunately got him arrested. I was impressed by the police and FBI, working in numerous locations , who ultimately were able to capture him.

A good and factual account about a very devious, and twisted mind. Jul 12, Kelly added it. Israel Keyes was one sick, twisted man. Unfortunately, he was also one very intelligent man. That makes for a scary combination. It's sad that he took all his murders to the grave with him. I doubt seriously that any of then will ever be solved. Samantha Koenig's car is heartbreaking. As is the Currier case. This book is a reminder that evil lurks where you least expect it. And life is precious. So appreciate every moment you're given. And stay smart. And alert. The darkest of hearts can be hidi Israel Keyes was one sick, twisted man.
The darkest of hearts can be hiding behind the brightest of smiles.
