Edmonton Horror Feature Filmmaker Weighs in on Twitchel Murder Trial...

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 8, 2011) -

Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Edmonton feature film Director Barry J. Gillis who has been closely following the Twitchell murder trial states,

"This hopeless wannabe filmmaker Twitchell is a complete moron and disgrace to all human kind. He gives filmmakers a bad name, especially those who make horror movies such as myself."

Gillis who is currently in post production on his 3rd horror feature film, "THE KILLING GAMES" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgqejgNyJRk "movie trailer") which was shot in Wabuman, Lac St. Anne, Alberta Beach and Edmonton, further states,

"He deserves the death penalty. Cases like this illustrate exactly why Canada should reinstate the death sentence."

Gillis believes that the question in these kinds of cases always seems to revolve around the same theme. "Did the blood, violence, death, etc, etc, that Twitchell viewed drive him to murder another human being, or was he just born with a demented brain?"

Gillis believes that someone has to be born with a damaged brain in order to go to the extremes that Twitchell did. He says that the influence of television shows and movies does not push someone to murder in cold blood.

"Millions of people watch movies and we today as a society are subjected to a steady diet of violence on television, in movies, and the media, however we don't all go out and kill someone for the fun, and/or thrill of it."

Barry J. Gillis is currently available for interviews with the media concerning this issue, and is also available to comment on crime, violence, and justice in our society.
