"The Satan Killer" is a gem of a movie. Unfortunately, I believe the more popular war movies buried this gem in the ground due to the concurring Iraqi war that was going on. This movie represents a time of innocence in a world that had all but forgotten it.
A particular short (but sweet) scene that continues to intrigue me to this day was the back alley execution of the pimp. Three Punk rock onlookers step out in a curious manner and watch the satan killer march triumphantly down the alley. Why did he ignore these kids? Was it that his animalistic hunger had been fed with his latest victim? Or was a Camaraderie felt between him adn the punks? A social metaphor nonetheless. I am curious to know what these kid's backstory was. Are we missing something lost in the editing room? I hope to get a directors cut release to satisfy my curiosity as I am sure it will reveal more of these three fine actors.
