Dear Mr.Gacy

In 1980, John Wayne Gacy (William Forsythe of THE DEVIL'S REJECTS) was convicted of the rape and murder of 33 boys and young men - many of whom he buried beneath his suburban Chicago home - and sentenced to death row. Thirteen years later, ambitious criminology student Jason Moss (Jesse Moss of UNINVITED) began a bizarre correspondence with the serial killer by posing as a vulnerable gay teen. What followed was a nightmare journey into a world of violence, madness and sexual depravity that brought home the true horror of Gacy's crimes. Hailed by Maxim as a "true-life Silence of the Lambs," Dear Mr. Gacy is a chilling true story based on the best seller that detailed an 18-year-old's terrifying relationship with the most notorious mass murderer in American history.
