About The Iceman
The grim but fascinating story of one of the most notorious contract killers in American history. Richard 'The Iceman' Kulinsky (Michael Shannon) claimed to have committed over 100 murders when he was arrested in the mid-1980s. The film starts decades earlier when he meets crime boss Roy Demeo (Ray Liotta) and murders a random stranger at his request. Seeing the potential in this cold-blooded low-level criminal, Roy puts Richard to work. Richard's devoted wife (Winona Ryder) and young daughters have no idea about his career. But for two decades he dispatches people with guns, knives and poison, using his earnings to buy a nice suburban house and send his daughters to private school. He gets his nickname when a fellow killer (Chris Evans) teaches him to freeze bodies for later disposal.
