Jake Evans, a 17-year-old who called 911 to tell police he killed his mother and sister at their Aledo home last October, wrote in his confession he was inspired by a popular horror movie. It’s a story that will further the debate on whether violent movies, games, etc., have an effect on these types of situations.

In his confession, Evans wrote that he was inspired by the 2007 remake of the movie ‘Halloween,’ directed by heavy metal musician Rob Zombie.

“While watching it I was amazed at how at ease the boy was during the murders and how little remorse he had afterword [sic]. I was thinking to myself it would be the same for me when I kill someone,” Evans wrote in his confession.

“After I watched the movie I put it back in the case and threw it in the trashcan so that people wouldn’t think that it influenced me in any way,” Evans also wrote.

Evans confessed to watching ‘Halloween’ three times the week he killed his mother, Jamie Evans, and 15-year-old sister Mallory. He used a .22 revolver in the killings.

His 911 call went viral. It portrays a remorseless teen who admittedly called himself evil. You can listen to it below.
