Making a movie about a real serial killer is no easy task. These are real people, and their victims are real people with family members. At the same time, this is not supposed to be a documentary and people want to see a movie, so cinematic elements need to be present. It is a difficult task to pull this off when the main character is such a horrific person, are we supposed to feel sympathy for them? Are they meant to be portrayed as some sort of hero? If so, that is pretty tasteless. "Gacy" tells part of the story of real life serial killer, John Wayne Gacy. I was not a fan of how this movie portrayed him. It tries to make his killings seem somewhat justified because he was beat as a child and is sometimes bullied a bit in adulthood. It was just a bit tasteless in my opinion. Mark Holton plays Gacy and does a decent job. Nothing too special really. All of the other acting is really bad though. The character arc for Gacy in this is just weird. And the ending is all rushed. I think there is a good movie to be made about Gacy waiting to be made, but this is not it. It does offer some unsettling moments and from the things I have researched about Gacy, it depicts his way of killing his victims fairly accurately. However, this movie just falls a bit flat and is deprived of anything memorable. Overall, I give this movie a 4/10.
