Plot – Spoilers:
18-year-old college kid, Jason Moss has grand ambitions for his term paper. He’s cocksure about his guile and is convinced he can get imprisoned serial killer, John Wayne Gacy to bare his soul to him. For this, Jason is willing to pose sexily for Gacy and even indulge the latter’s perverse fantasies over the phone.

Everyone around Jason insist on reminding him that John Wayne Gacy didn’t get to 30+ kills without certain dangerous skills. But to Jason – Gacy is in a faraway, secure prison. What better Kevlar gloves do you need, to keep playing with fire…

Dear Mr Gacy could easily be dismissed as another one of those TV movies. Until you actually see it.

Useless Trivia:
Jesse Moss plays real-life Jason Moss.

Moss made me cringe but Forsythe was good. We interviewed Gacy at Menard and got permission to film him doing a standup “comedy routine” from death row. He agreed and we got the legal permissions but dropped the project because good sense intervened. The interview was fascinating, as was the joke list he prepared. He was gracious and almost affectionate while interviewed. During this process, as in the movie, he corresponded with me by letter many times, telling me stop sending things “return receipt requested”, and called me at home repeatedly, so we talked at length. Unlike Moss, we weren’t conning him with ulterior motives and we treated him with a cautious respect, which he sensed and responded to in kind, as an interesting business proposition. Also, in a perverse way that appealed to his perversity, the perverse nature of our project, entertained him. We never pressured him with revealing anything, and let things play out, which turned out to be as revealing as it could be, since people by nature like to reveal themselves, and if you refuse to ask, they will start hinting. Since his execution date was approaching, we didn’t want to be used in his appeals process, which was one reason we had to cancel the project. You could tell, in dealing with him, how intelligent and squirrely he could be. To the extent the approach Moss used in the flick is accurate, and having met Gacy himself, I can see how dangerous and silly it… Read more »

Another good one… not as effed up as some, but still pretty good. William Forsythe is a really fine actor and does a great job here. Something I’ve grown to expect from this guy.

I have always had a fascination with serial killers, mass murders, spree killers and the like. So much so that I spent my college years studying abnormal psychology. I have written to a number of them, including Gacy who was the only one to respond to my letters. The day after his execution, roughly 5 days after I wrote him, I received a xerox copy of a fried chicken recipe with the initials “J.W.G” on the bottom left corner. Oddly enough, it’s a recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken, being he apparently managed a franchise at one time.

His house on Summerdale Ave. in Des Plaines was torn down, the lot subdivided into two, but neither house has Gacy’s old address. Between the two houses is a large concrete pad that serves as the driveways and garages for the two homes with a half basketball court between. This is where Gacy’s house actually stood and where the bodies were discovered.
