As part of his college thesis, Jason Moss (Jesse Moss), a criminology student, decides to write to John Wayne Gacy and attempt to gain his trust through impersonating a typical victim or admirer.

Moss sends a carefully crafted letter to John Wayne Gacy (William Forsythe) in prison, portraying himself as a vulnerable, sexually confused boy. The letter is an intricate plan to get inside Gacy's head in hopes of uncovering new information regarding his murders that will aid Moss in writing a standout term paper.

The film unfolds as Gacy, suspicious at first, puts Moss through intense emotional tests via letters and collect calls, all of which leads to strained relationships with his girlfriend and family. Gacy tries to convince Moss to become a hustler, and Moss lies about having his wallet stolen by a client. After hearing that, Gacy offers to have the man's penis cut off, saying he's very protective of people he's close to. Gacy even asks Moss to convince his younger brother, Alex, to send Gacy a letter, and suggests that Moss molest the boy after hearing he gets beat up a lot. That makes Jason avoid Gacy's calls for a few days, making Gacy angry and suspicious that he is writing to another inmate.

Once Gacy hears that his last appeal failed and he will be executed soon, he offers to pay for Jason to visit him in prison. Jason agrees after getting a call from the warden, who says the two will not be in the same room and there will be guards. Jason also speaks to a victim of Gacy's who escaped, who doesn't want him to go. After Jason arrives, he finds out he will be in the same room with Gacy and the guard leaves. Gacy shows Jason piles of letters he received from the media and admirers. Gacy gets angry when Moss refuses the strawberry shortcake Gacy ordered for him. Gacy begins threatening Jason and then sits back down and starts acting like the two are friends again. After more conversation, Gacy says he is going to rape and kill Jason, and shoves him against the wall. The guards watching the security cameras see this, but think the pair are simply kissing, and turn away because they don't want to watch them having sex. The guards finally arrive a few minutes after Jason yells for them.

    The film based on the real-life story of Jason Moss, who as a college student attending UNLV, corresponded with five prominent serial killers on death row in an attempt to determine if there was more to be learned if one was to impersonate their typical victims or act as an ardent admirer.

    The focus of the film is Moss' interaction with John Wayne Gacy (convicted of murdering 33 young men and boys), with whom he developed the strongest relationship.

    Screenwriter Kellie Madison approached Clark Peterson, executive producer of Monster, to attempt to bring the story to life. It was during the course of their discussions with Moss, who was thrilled at the prospect of developing his novel The Last Victim into a film, that they learned of his suicide on June 6, 2006. After an appropriate period of time had passed, they approached Moss’ widow and ultimately were able to gain acceptance of the proposal, and Dear Mr. Gacy was developed. This is Kellie Madison’s first adaptation to the big screen. The film was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia.


    Dear Mr. Gacy premiered on Canadian TV on May 11, 2010, and was released on video later in the year.
