A SENSELESS MURDER THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED "IN COLD BLOOD" - THE 1967 HORROR!!

Two hoodlums travel hundreds of miles just to score 40 bucks and kill an entire family in the process. With brilliant direction by Richard Brooks, this 1967 true crime thriller from a best-selling book lays out the lives of these two jerkoffs from the beginning of their journey to the gallow's pole. Strangely enough, decades later one of the stars Robert Blake (above) would be convicted of murdering his wife,...for real. And as in the movie a guitar was also found in his possession....The Horror!! Pinewoods Rating System - Four Tall Pinewoods

In Cold Blood Movie Review & Film Summary (1968) | Roger Ebert

"In Cold Blood" is an eerie case. Not a movie. A case. The film itself, which is fantastically powerful despite its flaws, is the last episode in a chain which began eight years ago when the Herbert Clutter family was murdered near Holcomb, Kansas.

In Cold Blood remains an inspired hybrid of documentary and noir

The original Hollywood film noir era petered out toward the end of the 1950s, or right around the time the cinephile directors of the French New Wave started riffing on it. But well into the 1960s, noir's expressionistic visual style remained in play for some American auteurs (such as Sam Fuller, John Frankenheimer, Sidney Lumet, and Stanley Kubrick).

THE HORROR!!
