Who Do I Have To Kill?
Fear is one of the most powerful negative emotions that man can experience . . . and fear is not even a ‘real’ thing . . . more times than not the things we fear the most never actually happen . . . we nurture destructive fear for nothing at all.
Larry Crain is a medical student with two years to go, and he is out of money and out of options. He must become a doctor, but there is no way to get the money to finish his education . . . unless . . . he can kill Professor Stanley.
Professor Stanley, one of the teachers at the medical school, often loans students money in exchange for their possessions . . . He is a pawn broker of sorts. Larry kills the old man with the intention of stealing the money in his money box, but after killing the professor Larry is interrupted by a couple of students knocking at the door who want to pawn something with the professor.
Fear strikes the heart of Larry and although he escapes the professor's apartment without notice he has forgotten to steal the money . . . he has murdered for NOTHING! . . . Maybe . . .
I can tell you that this gripping modern day thriller was written in Russia in 1866 by Fyodor Dostoyevsky as a novel named Crime and Punishment . . . Yup . . . school kids today will not have a clue, but back in the day novels like this were regular homework assignments for school kids. I read this very long novel as a teenager, but I’ve got to tell you, I think that the movie is much better. It took me several weeks to digest the whole book, but now we can enjoy the thriller in an hour and eighty minutes. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
