What a blast from the past. I vividly recall seeing this for the first time over 20 years ago and found it riveting and disturbing. One of those films that made me want to go home, take a shower, and then reconnect with "normal" humanity. This is a bleak film that, at the time, opened a lot of eyes to the disconnect and cold, hard-edged plight and outlook of modern youth in America. Reeves is quite good in this, even though I am not a big fan of his work; most of the other actors are competent and believable as well. Highly recommended.

YYYYYYYESSSSS!!!! This movie was a blast from my hazy past! I loved it then, but it is even cooler now! What a dark, gritty look at dysfunction and teenage love, angst, and murder in the extreme... and what a bloody awesome soundtrack! Here's one of the featured songs only the metalest of metalheads will even recognize! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZdUUJ2pt-I Enjoy. It I quite possibly the festering boil on the buttcheeck of the music world that spawned all other heavy metal. No glam... no thrash... no speed... just heavy F'ing metal baby!!! The movie was great too. lol 11/10

I remember seein' this movie in the 80s,classic with a killer soundtrack featuring slayer. All the leather and jeans the 80s was a good time for us punk ass kids to live!

What a cool movie! Can't believe I've never seen it before, all the main characters were funny, quirky, and entertaining....lots of good one-liners, def a must for 80's fans, 4/5.

Incredible movie! Standout performances from just about everyone including Ione Skye, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Roebuck and of course how can forget Dennis Hopper and Crispin Glover? I think what disturbed audiences the most was not the fact that a young man killed his girlfriend, but that after being shown the body, his friends did nothing. NOTHING! Eventually, we see the group fracture and the true humans rise to the top. Excellent acting, a top-notch soundtrack and score and a truly wonderful script LOOSELY based on several true accounts make this a top 40 in my list! Not just recommended, but required viewing in my opinion!

Good movie, but in all honesty Crispin Glover made this movie. He was the best one of all.

A blast from the past indeed. I guess my disturbance back then wasn't so much about the murder, but how the characters depicted slowly out of control while maintaining an unambiguous look on their faces. I would definitely recommend this flix.

Wow I just realized this movie is based on true story. The girl's name is Marisa Conrad & she was raped/murdered by her so called boyfriend. U can Google her story.

What a fantastic movie. Dennis Hopper + a young Keanu Reeves wearing denim+ A murder by a river+ Catholicism = the X/Y generation gap. Hopper was a treasure.
