The Highly Anticipated True-Crime Thriller: “He Went That Way”

Undoubtedly, Jacob Elordi and the true-crime genre are two significant draws for audiences today. And now, these two factors are coming together in the highly anticipated film “He Went That Way,” which is set to release on VOD platforms on January 12.

Bobby, the Chilling Serial Killer:

Based on a true story, this thrilling movie stars Elordi as Bobby, a chilling 19-year-old serial killer. But the intrigue doesn’t end there – Bobby’s murderous journey takes an unexpected turn when he hitches a ride with Jim (played by the talented Zachary Quinto), a celebrity animal handler.

A Twisted Road Trip:

The plot thickens as the movie progresses, with the road trip becoming increasingly tricky as the clashing personalities of Bobby and Jim escalate tensions. “He Went That Way” is based on the shocking true story of Dave Pitts, a celebrity animal trainer and the sole survivor of serial killer Larry Ranes. Ranes, suspected of killing up to five people in the 1960s, was finally apprehended. The film showcases the directorial debut of Jeffrey Darling, with an engaging screenplay penned by Evan M. Wiener, adapted from Conrad Hilberry’s novel “Luke Karamazov.” Alongside Elordi and Quinto, the film features the talented Patrick J. Adams.

A Fresh Take on True-Crime:

While “He Went That Way” promises to captivate audiences with its thrilling storyline, it is not the first true-crime thriller to attract public attention. In recent years, movies such as “Boston Strangler,” “Love and Death,” “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” and “The Good Nurse” have all left a lasting impact on viewers. However, for those craving a fresh take on the genre, “Based on a True Story” provided fans with a comedic twist. Starring Kaley Cuoco and Chris Messina, this film added humor to a typically intense genre. With the release of “He Went That Way” just around the corner, fans can look forward to a thrilling new addition to the true-crime genre.

Jacob Elordi’s Rising Star Power:

Jacob Elordi’s star power continues to rise in the entertainment industry. The actor first gained recognition through his lead role in the popular Netflix teen romance trilogy “The Kissing Booth.” Following this success, Elordi made waves with his captivating performance in HBO’s acclaimed series, “Euphoria.” Not one to slow down, Elordi starred in two critically acclaimed films in 2023. Firstly, he portrayed the iconic Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s “Priscilla.” Then, he took on a highly anticipated role in Emerald Fennell’s sophomore film “Saltburn.” Despite his impressive resume, Elordi is eager to take on more high-profile roles directed by celebrated filmmakers. Recent news is that he will be stepping into Andrew Garfield’s shoes to play Frankenstein’s Monster in Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming film adaptation.
