Stalked by Serial Killers

Filed under: Uncategorized — March 13, 2013 @ 10:40 pm

I dreamt last night that I was being pursued by a likely serial killer.

Can you say “anxiety dream”?

It’s true that I have a particular fascination with serial killers.

I read books on them (The Stranger Beside Me,…), watch the TV shows (CSI, Criminal Minds, Dexter,…), view the movies (Monster, American Psycho, Silence of the Lambs,…), follow news stories closely.

I feel strangely admitting this aloud. People look at me funny, as if I’m the one with skeletons in my closet. Literally.

Really, it’s exactly the opposite: I find such killers so completely incomprehensible that I feel compelled to keep studying them, as if the answers to their dread way of being can be found somewhere in their stories.

But now they’re pursuing me.

Great.

I’m not a huge fan of the blood-and-gore stuff; I’m more interested in the psychological side, the human-interest aspect, not pure sensationalism.

Maybe I’ll go order “The Bone Collector” to get this particular “song” out of my head….

I hope it’s only in my head. I hope I don’t lose my head….
