this one is creepy because you don't necessarily know who the killer is even through the conclusion. This genre which gives way to a lot of smut but this is compelling. What if an individual wants to have a role so bad that they would accept any role offered as long as they had one? The police certainly want to close cases, and it is easy to pin it all on the neurotic. I'm not sure I even believe in serial killers.
