Strong and unsettling portrait of a psycho

Woodyanders (Woodyanders@aol.com), IMDb
23 November 2012
  • Summary: Cunning and charismatic serial killer William Bonin (a creepy, intense, and convincing performance by Scott Anthony Leet) preys on various hapless drifters and hitchhikers on the California highways in the late 1970's.

For Viewers Interested In True Crime

  • Summary: William Bonin was a real-life serial killer who murdered a number of young men in the Los Angeles area around 1980. The plot of "Freeway Killer" gives us a character study of this man as an adult already in the process of carrying out his evil schemes.

Twisted logic washed down with cola and a burger

  • Summary: Serial killer movies. They are a dime a dozen and this is low low budget. So low no effort is made to get the background details correct. Set twenty years in the past cue all the modern cars and contemporary food items.

mostly based on true events

  • Summary: I never saw a flick with Scott Anthony Leet but what he performed here really did impress me. His face and his laughter really gives you the creeps. And after doing some research on William Bonin he really looked like him.

Not an other 'Henry', but worth watching.

BloedEnMelk, IMDb
5 May 2011
  • Summary: Reading the reviews, one of them stated that this was an other 'Henry' (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer). I do have to disagree on that comment. An other 'Henry' it is definitely not. What made 'Henry' so interesting, especially in that time, is the dark, grim and depressing feeling of realism.

Too many anachronisms

sarlex85, IMDb
11 May 2010
  • Summary: The movie itself wasn't so bad. However the storyline could've been fleshed out a little bit more. My pet peeve was that the movie was filled with so many Anochronisms, it threw the story off a bit. This was set around 1979-1980, but it looked very low budget.

Absurdly incomplete

Bill Shroyer, IMDb
23 April 2010
  • Summary: This was a rather disappointing experience. Scott Leet gave a terrific performance, there was nothing about his acting I'd have changed in the least. But the script was so sanitized as to make the movie basically useless to anyone who actually wants to know about Bill Bonin, the Freeway Killer.

It Held Me to My Seat But...

dwayne-miller, IMDb
12 March 2010
  • Summary: Well it was engaging and intense and it held my down to watch in curiosity mainly because of that sicko sinister character, a gracious savior to this film in my opinion. Other than that, most of the acting coming from all the other characters were lackluster and nothing groundbreaking really...

Better than most serial killer films...

Reaper-of-Souls, IMDb
28 February 2010
  • Summary: While not the best film of its kind, Freeway Killer is better than most serial killer films. Despite being a fairly violent movie, some of the more disturbing things were left out. William Bonin was much more violent in real life. The torturing and raping was completely ignored.

Realistic and Chilling: Another "Henry" ..

22 February 2010
  • Summary: "Freeway Killer" is based on real life serial killer William Bonin. He certainly isn't well known like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy or Henry Lee Lucas. But there were a lot of similarities with Henry. William also had a partner in crime. Mostly, these killers work alone.
