Ran across the ad below on Craig's List . This guy advertises for a woman to come watch movies with him at his private movie 'marathon', with starting times running from 3:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. No biggie, right? Not until one reads the list of films he has chosen.

- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
- Silence of the Lambs
- Zodiac
- Manhunter
- Natural Born Killers

...and perhaps of greater significance, a movie he left off his list? The Craigslist Killer !!!

I have reproduced the CL ad below, but for you fornesic* groupies, here's a LINK to the original ad on CL.

*in fond memory of April Bowlby's character, "Candy", on Two and a Half Men.

Serial Killer Movie Marathon Sunday - m4w - 45 (Decatur)

I'm looking a movie fanatic who likes watching lots of movies and having a few drinks while doing so (however, drinking not required). I'm having a Serial Killer movie marathon Sunday, May 27, starting at 3 PM. Twenty-one or older, race and beauty not important, just like movies. Here's the line-up (descriptions from Netflix):

3:00 PM: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (R): When a young computer hacker is tasked with investigating a prying journalist, their separate missions become entangled amid a decades-old conspiracy. David Fincher directs this English adaptation of Stieg Larsson's novel.

6:00 PM: The Silence of the Lambs (R): In this pulse-pounding adaptation of Thomas Harris's novel, FBI trainee Clarice Starling ventures into a maximum-security asylum to pick the diseased brain of Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist turned homicidal cannibal. Starling needs clues to help her capture a serial killer; unfortunately, her Faustian relationship with Lecter soon leads to his escape and now, two deranged killers are on the loose.

8:00 PM: Zodiac (R): David Fincher's chilling drama based on actual events in the 1960s and '70s recounts the infamous actions of a cryptic killer who stalked the streets of San Francisco in an executioner's hood and left clues about his crimes in the newspaper. Jake Gyllenhaal -- flanked by an impressive ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Chloë Sevigny -- stars as the reporter who went on to write a best-selling true-crime book.

11:00 PM: Manhunter (R): Using his uncanny ability to get inside psychopaths' minds, former FBI agent Will Graham (William Petersen) returns to action to hunt down a serial killer. Graham retired after catching Hannibal Lecter (Brian Cox) and subsequently suffering a breakdown. Now, he engages in a risky cat-and-mouse game with Lecter to capture a new killer. This gripping psychological horror film is based on the novel Red Dragon, the prequel to The Silence of the Lambs.

1 AM: Natural Born Killers (R): Director Oliver Stone's stark satire of media and murder still generates controversy. Mickey and Mallory Knox (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis, respectively) hit the road on an interstate killing spree that triggers a manhunt and garners amazing ratings for a tabloid TV star (Robert Downey Jr.). Shocking, bloody and relentlessly violent, Stone's visually frenetic film makes a chilling statement about the American cultural landscape.

I've set up my home theater in my downtown Decatur office on Ponce, two blocks from the square. The movies start around 3 PM run until 3 AM. You don't have to stay for all of the movies. I'll be drinking rum and Cokes, so if you like rum and Coke, you're welcome to some. If you drink anything else you'll need to bring it along. If firing one up is your thing, no problem with me. It's all about watching movies and enjoying yourself while doing so. I'm two blocks from the Decatur MARTA station, so that's an alternative to driving if you live near the MARTA rail line. I'm not looking for sex, a girlfriend, or a wife, just a movie partner. I'd be glad to meet you in public first.

Movies are Blu-ray high definition and shown on a 50" Plasma HDTV with sound from an excellent system.

Note: These movies may be LOUD at times. Do not attend if you don't like loud.

I am an attractive, 45 year old white male who is in decent shape. I can relate to anyone from age 21 to mid 50s. Don't care about what you look like, your race, or how much you weigh. If you like watching movies, you're my kind of person. I will send a photo to those who respond and would appreciate one in return.
