Truly Disturbing Headline: Aussie Horror Movie Inspired Killer: Court

Let the debating of whether or not horror movies cause real life violence begin.  Read on for the details.

An English killer who tortured and mutilated his victim was allegedly copying an Australian horror film he had become obsessed with.

Gary George, 41, will serve at least 30 years in jail for the murder of 53-year-old Andrew Nall in August last year, The Telegraph reports.

Chester Crown Court heard George stabbed the homeless Mr Nall 49 times and carved a wound in his victim’s stomach that he poured salt into to exacerbate the pain.

The killer, who was said to be obsessed with the 2009 horror film The Loved Ones, also poured cleaning fluid into his victim’s eyes while he was still alive.

Judge Elgan Edwards described the murder as “sadistic” and a “cruel and vicious attack”.

“Behaving in the way you did, you were apeing the conduct in a film of which you were obsessed, namely The Loved Ones.”

After killing Mr Nall, George allegedly visited a liquor store where he reportedly told the shop assistant that he had just killed his “best mate”

He initially denied the killing but pleaded guilty last week .

    I’m obsessed with Halloween and May. Does that mean I’m going to wear an altered William Shatner mask and murder slutty teens every halloween or cut up my favorite parts of various people to make a perfect person? No. Mentally unstable people are the ones that take the violence from movies, tv shows, video games, etc.. and make it a reality. The unfortunate part about this is that people usually give clues to their tendencies but they’re so secluded from other people or the people around them brush it off because let’s be honest, no one wants to think someone they know is capable of murder.
