Description

"In May 2000, Hollywood horror screenwriter Eric Red drove his Jeep Cherokee through the front window of a pool hall, killing two and injuring 20. Moments later, he slit his own throat. Although the story disappeared from the newspapers, research revealed five years of aggressive legal maneuvers to avoid responsibility, as well as numerous examples of behavior that can only be termed pathologcail- including similarities to the accident in his films and screenplays, both before and after the accident."
