Alexander Pichushkin, the 'Chess Killer' got this name from his plan to kill one person for every square on the chess board. He claims to have killed 63 people but evidence shows that the number was 48. After trial he was sentenced to life in prison and must undergo mandatory psychiatric therapy.

He claims to have killed more people than he really did? Weird.

Or Chinese Checkers.  In fact, how do we know he wasn't trying to a person for every checkerboard square instead of a chessboard.  Wait, in Russia, it is draughts and it is played on a 10 by 10 board.  He wasn't even half way before he got caught "crowning" his victims.

As far as chess in concerned, surely this proves that there IS such a thing as bad publicity. Surprised

 That is quite common among serial/mass murderers who attain some notoriety, e.g. Albert "the Grey Man" Fish (IMO, the personification of pure evil.)  He was more unconscionably evil than the demon in my avatar.

He wasn't very imaginative as arch-fiends go. He should have engaged in a correspondence game with the lead investigator and submitted his moves on tiny pieces of paper inserted under the fingernails of his victims.

I agree with hooperxxx; fairly unimaginative serial killer.

Or perhaps, do a few menials (pawns), a couple of Knights, a few Bishops, a Queen and finally a King, perhaps destroy a Castle along the way too. This along with bizarre correspondence to the police, etc...

 Not that I'm promoting this sort of thing and perhaps I've seen too many movies about serial killers.

Im trying to inspire wayne to make his movie

verylate

maybe we can combine themes and do a movie about a killer on a movie set

kingofjive5

I like the idea but those kind of movies are usually a bit lame they never really capture me

verylate

yes, but think of how many puns you can take en passant

kingofjive5

I think we could sneak that pun in no matter what the theme of the movie is. So is our killer going to be a GM or a patzer? Im thinking of reasons why both might want to do it.. and when he traps the King is it going to be a real king or a king of the game of chess. Im going to see if i can find some writers to get involved here..

This reminds me a little bit of the movie Knight Moves with Christopher Lambert.
