Forgotten Film Psychopaths

Trivia Quiz Ah, serial killers...they horrify and fascinate us, which is why they're such popular movie fodder. The definitive movie serial killer? Norman Bates. Certainly, he was the first whose name everyone knows.

Through the arty/gritty phase of the horror film in the '70's, Leatherface and Michael Myers attained the same kind of recognition. Through the horror/slasher glut of the '80's, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger also attained this kind of mythic status. Hannibal Lecter redefined evil for a new generation, as well as making Anthony Hopkins an overnight sensation after a quarter century of quality acting, so he certainly akes the cut.

Not many film maniacs--be they serial killers, mass murderers, or what have you--went on to enjoy this kind of name recognition even among people who don't watch horror films. You could make the case that Catherine Trammell and the ubiquitous, ingenious John "Jigsaw" Cramer are equally well-known, I guess.

But what of the hundreds of other serial murderers depicted in movie fiction? Many of them (though certainly not all) had the good fortune to be portrayed competently, maybe even brilliantly. There will be a community of macabre film fans who can identify these forgotten movie psychopaths by name; there may een be a sizeable contingent that remembers them, but can't place their names. To these--the relatively obscure serial killers of filmdom--I dedicate this quiz. Can you match the obscure movie maniac to his or her film?

Proceed, and remember to lock your doors before you go to bed.

(NOTE: Some of these movies do have a "whodunit" aspect, so consider this your SPOILER WARNING.)
