Hammer head Pete!
18 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Like most of us we seem to want to watch films like this, yeah I know it is about one very sick son of a bitch! or should that be son of a pro! anyway I had sort of forgotten about hammer head Pete, and was looking forward to this film, it uses actual news and interview footage from the case at the time, and it adds a realistic feel to the story being told, but I think they could have done a whole lot better when it came to the script, there are a few holes in it, and it sort of jumps from one bit to another with out really giving inside why or how.

Overall not a bad take on Pete's story, but if you are after a blood feast this will not quench your thirst, as it is more of an inside to what made him tick, and don't ever forget there is a bit of Pete in all of us, right time right place and well you know the rest.

8 out of 10 and was great to hear that great song again by Frankie goes to Hollywood.
