A Little Mad Sometimes: Film Psychopaths from Jekyll and Hyde to Hannibal Lecter
By John McCarty
With the idea for the book coming to him in a dream, John McCarty’s review of self-dubbed “psychofilms” covers movies released between 1915 and 1992. From Trilby to Basic Instinct, A LITTLE MAD SOMETIMES discusses various implementations of the screen psycho throughout the years. Among the screen psychos featured here are Mr. Hyde, Norman Bates, and Michael Myers, as well as real-life psychos including Jack the Ripper, Ed Gein, and Charles Manson.
