Fear is a defence mechanism that exists in all animals, especially in human beings, our sense of fear is what keeps us safe; it allows us to avoid danger. However, there can be no danger greater than that posed by a serial killer and because the serial killer is driven, strikes at random and, in most cases, is a psychopath, he feels no fear himself. Yet the fear his actions evoke in the minds and hearts of any society leaves the population in the geographical area of his operation, gripped with terror for an extended period of time but there can be no safe haven, until the killer is caught. ‘Random Kill’ is a case by case study of just a few of these most terrifying offenders and offers some insight into the serial killer’s psyche. It is believed today in the United States that for every serial killer under lock and key, at least another five are at large to pursue their sickening trade, leaving everyone else to simply fear for their lives and to await the next ‘RANDOM KILL’.
