Topic: In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

I just got this book for X-mas and never read it before but I have seen both the original and remakes films of it and Capote. I am looking forward to reading it next week.


It's the true story of the Clutter family.....4 members of the family were brutally murdered by 2 convicts cause they thought they had a safe with alot of money in it but they didn't. The killers were later caught and hanged back in the 1950's I think.

I read this book when the movie In Cold Blood came out a few years ago, it's quite a good read.

You just got your hands on one of the greatest true crime stories of all time. I've read it and loved it. I haven't seen the movie though. Does anyone recomend it?

The original film was really good. It's in black and white but I highly recommend it.

Also the guy who plays the wierd doctor in Exorcist 3 was in the film too as Blake's sidekick killer.
