The Poughkeepsie Tapes


Directed by: John Dowdle
Written by: John Dowdle
Cast: Stacy Chbosky, Ben Messmer, Samantha Robson, Ivar Brogger
Studio: MGM
Genre: Crime, Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A documentary about "murder investigators [who] uncover hundreds of tapes showing decades of a serial killer's work."


The Poughkeepsie Tapes is an OK faux documentary. The subject is a serial killer in Upstate New York that likes to video tape his victims and crimes.

As the film is a decade old, I am guessing that it may have been more inventive in 2007. Instead, it plays out like a realistic episode of Criminal Minds. That being said, I liked Criminal Minds which is why I gave this an "OK" review.
