Here are 10 Movies that Drove people to Kill. The killers used these films as their excuse as to why they were driven to kill, sometimes multiple victims. Movies listed here include Child’s Play (1988) and Scream (1996) that you can understand a little even though that is still no excuse. The strangest reason was saying that The Ten Commandments (1956) drove this one man to kill and commit other vicious crimes, turns out, however, he was already doing them way before watching The Ten Commandments.
