ZODIAC is one of my all-time favorite movies regardless of how you choose to categorize the film. I am calling it a "real life horror" for this list because the basic events happened - dramatized and embellished I am sure - but The Zodiac is a real life killer. From the very first time I watched this film I was enthralled with the story, the details, the acting, and the creepiness in some scenes,
ZODIAC is not just one of those random murder movies that has been made dozens of times. There are moments where it creates a dreadful feeling in the viewer. One such instance is where the cartoonist turned amateur sleuth is following up a phone call conversation by visiting this guy at his house for some evidence. They go in the basement and while they are down there the little weasel guy he was visiting is turned different lights off and on as they walk around the basement. You can hear footsteps upstairs from a big heavy person that is creepy if you watch it late at night.
