Synopsis: A young woman named Clara is captured by a serial killer
named Leonard who records his "life story" by keeping a scrapbook of his
many victims.


"Scrapbook" to me was a voyeuristic view of a sadist serial killer who gets
off on documenting his torturous lifestyle in this elaborate scrapbook.
Leonard was an abused boy- from his demented sexually deviant sister
who convinced him it was ok, to his boy raping father. Seeing such a
fucked family life really explains why he does what he does, with an
upbringing like that it became his way of life. Inbreds skeeve me and are
honestly one on the biggest things on my list of "Things to be deathly
afraid of! Watching this movie made my stomach turn and my mind to
think of what if this happened to me. Serial killers are not in the same
category as Horror to me. Of course everything that is happening is
horrible but horror is supposed to be monsters, ghosts, slasher,
paranormal thrillers... something scary, not traumatizing.

It troubles me to watch it and I had to watch something else right
afterwards in order to quiet my mind. I haven't had a lot of movies do
this to me, but "Scrapbook" put my brain in the blender. Watching
Leonard mock Clara for her fits of hysterical crying showed some of his
sinister side and that he has no compassion, emotions of guilt, or wrong
doing. He enjoys what he does and needs to do it to survive. When
Leonard put her in the rubber trash can and taped it shut and left her in
it overnight, that made me feel her claustrophobic panic. I could almost
feel my lungs burning with the lack of oxygen as I watched her suffer in
that tiny confined space.

"Scrapbook" falls into the exploitation genre to the "T" and you will
witness brutal rape scenes, sodomy, head games, and the deterioration
of Leonard as his mind takes him on this journey filled with hate and
obsession. These types of movies are not the thing for me, I end up
disturbed from it and thinking about it way more than should. For those
of you with a strong mind, and a love for exploitation flicks however will
love this harrowing tale that managers to hit home quite nicely.
