For the film:
- Complete Monster: Carl is a Serial Killer who violently kills prostitutes, taking their undergarments and shoes for his fetish. Having claimed at least eight victims, Carl constantly abandons his lonely wife to go on his murder sprees. Picking up young mother Krista, Carl stabs her to death, leaving her body in a farm field after he has had his sick fun.
- Harsher in Hindsight: The film is titled The Dead Girl and Brittany Murphy is the murder victim in this film. Pretty harsh considering she died only three years later.
