What kind of lunatic goes around cheerfully killing total strangers, then writes letters to newspapers taunting the police? Yup, the kind who also goes down to the basement, dons a ceremonial robe and prays to a plaster idol, "I am the Supreme Zodiac! All those I kill in this life will be my slaves when I am reborn in Paradise! Atlantis shall rise again!" Based on the still-unsolved "Zodiac" murders from 1966-1969, The Zodiac Killer is a tabloid blend of truth, fiction and sick humor "based on known facts."
