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.


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….
