Strangers With Candy

Here's a fascinating blog post by Australian writer Alexandra Heller-Nicholas on the topic of the 1962 child murders that inspired the film "The Child Molester." The crime (and film) are integral to the history of the Highway Safety Foundation (hence my involvement as a source).

Alexandra is fearless, hip and talented. It was a pleasure meeting her a couple of years ago, and I'm proud to contribute to her ground-breaking work. Her book "Rape-Revenge Film: A Critical Study" will be published soon. The full-length essay on "The Child Molester" should be published later this year.
