According to Kansas City's KMBC-TV, Edwin R. Hall, the man accused of kidnapping and killing 18-year-old Kelsey Smith, has cited "Strangeland"
?? the 1998 horror film written by, co-produced by, and starring TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider
?? as one of his favorite movies.
The plot of "Strangeland" is similar to the crime Hall is accused of committing. The movie is about a deranged man who stalks the daughter of a police detective.
In real life, Smith's father has a background in law enforcement.
According to The Associated Press, Hall was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in Smith's death and aggravated kidnapping for her abduction last Saturday (June 2) from a Target store parking lot. His bond was set at $5 million.
