-Leonard Maltin, Movie & Video Guide

IN COLD BLOOD is the powerful, true story of a callous murder, based upon the best-selling novel by Truman Capote. A prosperous and respect Kansas farmer, his wife and his two teenage children are wantonly and brutally slaughtered. The murderers are two mindless ex-convict drifters: Perry Smith (Robert Blake) and Dick Hickock (Scott Wilson). The story penetrates the inner workings of the criminals' minds as it follows their purposeless meanderings through Mexico and the United States in evasion of the law and finally to the dramatic end of their journey.

My Comments:

This is, of course, the film adaptation of Truman Capote's famous non-fiction novel In Cold Blood. Based on actual events and filmed on location - including in the very house where the murders took place - this is a chilling movie that you won't soon forget.
