About Mickey Knox
Mickey Knox had a rough childhood. Not only did his parents abuse him, but he also witnessed his father’s suicide at the young age of 10. His difficult childhood led him to a life described by killing people as a way of achieving enlightenment. Nothing in the film seems to have successfully contained Mickey. Not prison and certainly not the mental institution where he and his wife, Mallory, were diagnosed to be criminally insane. In any of those instances, he just found new ways to wreak havoc and eventually escape.
Along with Mallory, the couple makes up a more modern and more twisted version of Bonnie and Clyde. The stark difference might be that Bonnie and Clyde only killed people as a means to rob banks whereas Mickey and Mallory went on killing sprees for fun and pleasure. Mickey Knox’s character is based on a real-life spree-killer by the name of Charles Starkweather. His name is based on a real-life Hollywood actor of the same name in the mid-to-late-1990s.
