Title: Kill me if you can
Post by: axerton on 15 Feb 2009, 20:54
Well I figured a few days before I go to meet with some of the people I've spent quite a while chatting with here, what better time could there be to post this documentary Kill Me If You Can (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOGsml6Egfo&feature=PlayList&p=B277AD4D3B093CD1&index=0&playnext=1) (sorry youtube was the only place I could find it so it's in 5 parts)  I saw it a week or so ago and it kinda freeked me out a bit, no in fact a lot.

Watch, Discuss, Enjoy.

Holy shit that is awesome.  And not the gentrified, diluted meaning of the word.  Awesome.

Is there anywhere I can read about this subject rather than dig through a movie to find out the pertinent points?

There are reports by the BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/3758209.stm) and Manchester Evening New (http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/s/118/118226_internet_murder_boys_told_never_see_each_other_again.html) from the time of the case. It's such an odd case, but at the same time not all that far from things I and others I know have experienced online, it's just this particular case got out of hand, and has an added injection of weirdness.

I just wanted to ask where? I remember seeing the program when it was on a while back (my mum and dad watched it as well and kept a bit of a closer eye on me after that) it was just rather odd really I must admit it seems strange to me that anything like this could happen.

Somebody being tricked to do something over the net? Not so weird. Somebody tricking someone else to kill them through chat rooms?

He spent what? 6 months on getting a guy to stab him.

Okay, yeah, see, now I'm a bit more interested in checking out the film proper. Thanks for the link.

The case is fairly interesting, yet, that video is possibly one of the worst retellings of the case possible. With the 15 minutes devoted to elderly people trying to explain what chat rooms are, and the fact that if you haven't figured out exactly what happened by 20 minutes into the film, then having a look at the title will get you to that point.

I love the lawyer who gives the whole "in my day we had decency and read books but now children grow up on James Bond" speech, as if he came of age significantly before 1962--and as if there haven't been crazy people and unbelievably gullible people since the dawn of time.

But pretty wild stuff, anyway.
