His physical attributes played a big part in his performance as Frank Zito. His skills as an actor then cemented the believability that this guy was a serious sociopathic killer. It’s a chilling role/performance to say the least. Joe Spinell is Frank Zito, much like Robert Englund is Freddy.
Elijah Wood is the exact opposite of Joe Spinell and is about as intimidating and terrifying as a newborn kitten. There is just no believability that this guy is going around killing girls when most of the chicks he’s going after probably have a good 20lb and 3 inches on the guy.
My thoughts exactly. Wood is about the least intimidating person I can think of, and they choose him?!
A midget serial killer....What a fucking joke.
