Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of “Pizza Man” restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn’t work. Instead, cult movie fans got the most outrageous and compelling “tabloid horror” vortex in the history of the planet. During theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater “traps” to lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. You won’t get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie. But you will get it while watching The Zodiac Killer.
Zodiac Killer is the first title of dozens in AGFA’s collaboration with Something Weird Video following a successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign.
