When his son is mistakenly murdered by a ruthless drug gang, the recent Citizen of the Year awardee inadvertently ignites a war between the vegan gangster, Count (Pål Sverre Hagen), and his Serbian mafia-boss rival, Papa (Bruno Ganz).

Cults, murders, suicides spice up students’ educational trip to L.A.

CANTON, Mo. — A group of Culver-Stockton College students got an eye-opening perspective on cults during a recent trip to Los Angeles.

The trip included a four-hour meeting with Debra Tate — the younger sister of movie actress and fashion model Sharon Tate, who was 81/2 months pregnant when she and four others were murdered on Aug. 8, 1969, by several followers of cult leader Charles Manson. Two other people were murdered the next day by other Manson followers.

The 21 students and three adult chaperones also went on a “Helter Skelter” tour of places in the Los Angeles area associated with the Manson murders. They even visited the “Museum of Death,” which has the largest collection of Manson-related memorabilia and lots of other gory exhibits.

The students took part in a “Dearly Departed Hollywood” tour that offered additional

Zac Efron on playing serial killer Ted Bundy

While ‘Extremely Wicked’ is framed by the story of Liz Kloepfer, a woman who had a longstanding romantic relationship with Bundy, and on whose book the film is based, the heart of the story is the killer. Kloepfer is shown only in relation to Bundy — she meets him, falls quickly in love, worries about whether he is guilty of the horrific crimes he is increasingly accused of. We are supposed to be drawn into her confusion and doubt, to see him through her eyes, to wonder about his behaviour — even to root for their relationship — but we can’t. Bundy, meanwhile, is the active and central character, studying for law school, travelling, planning and executing escapes from prison, defending himself in court, and manipulating first Kloepfer, and then a woman called Carole Ann Boone, with whom he fathers a child while he is on death row.
