YMMV / The Alphabet Killer

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: Since the film did so poorly with the critics and the box office, it is most notable for many fans as the first time Eliza Dushku had a topless scene.
  • Complete Monster: The Alphabet Killer, Richard Ledge, is the pedophilic psychopath responsible for the film's events. Having kidnapped, then brutally raped and murdered a little girl, the killer became infatuated with police detective Megan Paige, and, to prove her theory that his killings were solely against children with alliterative names, he raped and murdered two more children who matched Paige's theory. When Paige discovers his identity, the killer brutally beats her before trying to drown her in a raging river. Evading capture by the film's end, the killer goes on to rape and murder numerous more little girls while leaving Paige to rot in a mental institution. Manipulatively charming and falsely kind, the Alphabet Killer was a depraved lunatic with no rhyme or reason to his atrocities beyond his own perverse entertainment.
