Fridge: The Dead Talk Back

  • Fridge Brilliance: Granted, this doesn't redeem the movie but having the movie bear a misleading title mirrors Dr. Krasker's theatricality and misdirection which, in the movie, is enough to bluff the murderer into a confession. It helps that he really does believe in his research. There's even some ambiguous dialog with the police about Krasker using his "unorthodox methods" to help them solve crimes in the past which, on second viewing, suggests that Krasker is willing to regularly take advantage of his reputation to long con criminals. It might even explain where he's getting the funding for his "research."
