William "Bill" Williamson is a mass murderer and the main character of the low-budget independent Rampage film trilogy, which consists of the first film in 2009, the sequel Capital Punishment in 2014 and the finale President Down released in 2016.
He is an unhinged and violent Social Darwinist and a political extremist who desires a cut down on the world's population in order to prevent scarcity of natural resources (food, water, land, energy) and later aspires to implement an anarchist government.
He was portrayed by Brendan Fletcher, who has also contributed to the character by co-writing and co-producing the films.
Bill Williamson is a 23-year-old mechanic who lives with his parents. Determined to exact revenge upon the fictional town of Tenderville, Oregon, he builds a body suit of bulletproof Kevlar armor, complete with a ballistic helmet and a paintball mask before going on a killing spree with two sub-machine guns, two pistols and two knives, hoping to stop overpopulation, which he believes is the sole reason for the world's problems. Psychologically, he is continually bombarded with the problems of the world, by ubiquitous TV sets, radios, and the views of Evan Drince, who seems to be his sole friend. One day, hurt, after his parents tell him that it's time he left home, and tired of being victimized by his boss at work, Bill acts upon his plan to reduce the town's population. He believes overcrowding causes the world's problems.
Bill dons his suit of Kevlar armor, and goes to town. First he incapacitates the police by car-bombing their headquarters with a bomb-loaded van. He then begins to kill the residents of the town, shooting people at random, including a barista who refused to give him his money back after making the wrong coffee. He robs a bank, killing some of the employees including one who tried to physically subdue him. Bill slits his throat and mocks him for "playing hero" and discourages everyone to not dare oppose him. Outside the bank he puts on a show by burning fake money, which he had printed up earlier, to show that it is worthless and causes the problems of the world. Bill has killed at least 93 people during this rampage, which has only lasted a morning.
After the killings, Bill calls Evan Drince, who is in a forest nearby expecting him for a paintball game. When he arrives at the forest, Bill apologizes to Evan for having him wait for an hour, and shows him the money he robbed from the bank. He then immobilizes Evan with a stun gun, places a pistol in his hand, and shoots him in the head to create the illusion of suicide. Bill leaves the body of Evan wearing the armor suit, and holding the weapons of the massacre. He leaves the forest and makes his way home, before his parents arrive. While they are conversing in front of the television, the killer is identified as Evan on the news. After his parents console him on the loss of his friend, he tells him he is tired and goes to his room. In his room, while packing his belongings and stolen bank money, he hears another news report that police have arrested Evan's father, an antiwar activist during the Vietnam War era, who is accusing Bill of the crime and claiming the innocence of his son. Bill leaves his parents' house, as told. The movie concludes with a video recording of Bill announcing his departure on a personal quest to further "exhibit his brand of population control".
Rampage: Capital Punishment
Immediately after committing his rampage in Tenderville, Bill Williamson disappeared and had been living off the grid for years with the money he stole from a bank during the massacre. The video recording of his rants about violent population control had since garnered millions of views and turns Bill into an Internet sensation among hate groups and political extremists. In the present day, Bill uses the stolen money to finance yet another killing spree, purchasing a number of weapons, including two fully automatic, military-grade M4 carbines, and constructing homemade explosives. After making final preparations for the killing spree, Bill shaves his head clean, dons his suit of body armor, and sets the interior of his house on fire. He drives to an alleyway, where he sends away a homeless man he befriended earlier. He then uses the cover of the alleyway to shoot several random pedestrians undetected, before trying to enter a bingo hall, only to leave after finding it is closed.
Bill then travels to a television station in Washington, D.C., where he blows up his car and then enters the building. Inside, he shoots the security guard and several employees with the carbines. He then holds the survivors, including news anchorman Chip Parker, hostage and forces them to an empty basement at gunpoint. Bill intentionally leaves behind the program director, Andy, who calls the police. He kills one of the hostages when he disregards one of his orders, then repeatedly taunts Chip when he tries to reason with him. After a while, Bill gives Chip a disc and tells him to go upstairs and air the contents of the disc nationwide, then return with a camera crew so they could do a live interview with him, threatening to kill the rest of the hostages if he does not do so. Chip agrees and leaves the basement, where he relays his instructions to the responding police officers. However, while trying to air the disc, he accidentally slips and breaks the disc. At the instruction of the commanding officer, Chip returns to the basement and tells Bill what had happened; an agitated Bill threatens his life, but gives him a duplicate of the disc.
While Chip is gone, Bill criticizes one of the hostages for her personal life before killing her. He is then confronted by another hostage, who reveals herself to be the sister of one of the people he killed at Tenderville. She confirms she was the sister of the Chicken Den waitress (from the first Rampage movie) who accidentally dropped Bill's lunch. When she expresses her intent to kill him, Bill forces a male hostage to beat her. At first, he reluctantly does so, but when the man refuses to hit her any further, he praises his attitude and allows both hostages to live. Eventually, the contents of the disc are aired on live television; in it, Bill rants in a video recording about how the current system is flawed and that the U.S. government is manipulating American citizens and events for the sake of wealth.
He claims that Saudi Arabia is the true culprit of the "War on Terror" for funding the 9/11 attacks but because of Americans' reliance on Saudi oil, U.S. soldiers are instead sent to go fight and die in the "wrong" countries that do not fund or conduct terrorist attacks on America. Bill claims that Americans desperately need gun control, health care, jobs, personal freedom and mercy from racism, but they are denied such things and citing Obama does nothing more than tell Americans that their country is not in any emergency or crisis whatsoever, he cries for Obama to be imprisoned and pressed with criminal charges. The video ends with Bill appealing to the American people to retaliate violently against politicians and the wealthy in order to restore society. Once the video concludes airing, Bill is now delighted into a good mood after his many outbursts of anger as his message has now been spread. Meanwhile, the officers manage to contact Bill's father with the intention of using him to appeal to Bill.
Chip returns to the basement with a camera crew, including an undercover police officer, and gives Bill a cellphone with his father on the other end. Mr. Williamson tries to appeal to Bill, then reveals his mother Sarah died in a car accident as a result of medication she had been taking for depression from Bill running away from home. At that moment, Bill becomes suspicious of the undercover officer and kills him. Using a hidden security camera he implanted earlier, he notices SWAT teams converging on the basement and detonates explosives, killing the officers. At Chip's urging, Bill commences with the live interview, during which he becomes more specific about his rants in the disc and also espouses his opinions about killing innocent people. He then reveals his intention to die along with Chip before shooting him in the arm and releasing the others.
Bill immediately engages a SWAT team in a shootout before fleeing, leaving behind a gas bomb that destroys the entire building and kills hundreds of people, including Chip and the officers. In the aftermath of the siege, news reports say that Bill likely did not survive the massive explosion. However, Bill is shown alive and well, having escaped through the ventilation system. Sometime afterward, he spots a young girl reading a book, Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, and criticizes her for reading one. Bill then gives her a pistol and instructs her to use it to kill her parents and then herself before sending her off with a look of satisfaction on his face.
Rampage 3: President Down
|“||I just killed your President! The President is dead!||„|
|~ Bill sings this in a mocking tone.|
In the third and final film taking place 3 years after the events of the previous film, Bill is revealed to have married a woman named Crystal and now has a baby son, Billy. They live underground in a forest. His dad, Alan, committed suicide, unable to live with the guilt of his son's actions. Bill returns from hiding and while carrying a sniper rifle, boards a train to Washington DC then goes to the roof of a parking garage on 7th Avenue (1.2 miles from the White House) and assassinates the President of the United States, as well as the Vice-President and the Secretary of Defense. He quietly returns home again by train. Blame immediately falls on both ISIS (with the news making claims that they are taking responsibility) and secretly Bill with a few agents of the FBI. After ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, the United States not knowing Bill was alive and thinking it was ISIS, launches a series of nuclear attacks on the Muslim nations and kills millions in the Middle East. Enraged by the nuclear attack, he then taunts the authorities, preparing for a final assault in which he expects to die as a martyr of his own cause, further establishing his iconic legacy. As federal authorities begin investigations upon who has murdered the president, Bill is able to hear what they are saying by having hacking their devices. The authorities begin suspecting Bill and catch surveillance of him walking around D.C., and that his entry into the data base as "Deceased" is an error, seeing how everyone thought he perished back in the 2nd film. FBI Agent Murray then recaps the events of the 2nd films, as well as adding that Bill's father, Alan, has committed suicide since he couldn't live with the guilt for all the people Bill murdered. Vincent and Molokai proceed to suspect Bill by playing his message back in the 2nd film, and Vincent Jones scorns Bill's message, strongly disagreeing with whatever Bill has to say, as while Jones' accomplice Molokai does the opposite, agreeing with much of Bill's logic. Vincent is rather unconvinced, mostly against Bill's rants that blacks are thrown in jail out of racism and the United States' aggressive foreign policies to declare war, particularly upon the Middle East. Vincent counter reacts that blacks commit crimes non-stop, which is why the police are so occupied and militarized, that they should be blamed for creating problems for the country rather than the police, and that the United States has to attack now or else they will be attacked and then overthrown.
Bill grows very concerned over what shall happen to his baby son. Bill claims that Billy as he grows up into adulthood will be forced to work in a system where the middle class is vanishing and have no chance of joining the richest 1% of America no matter how hard he works, will work into his old age where his body is weakening, "scratching and clawing" to find enough money to fund not just himself but also to leave some behind for his own children and soon he'll physically and mentally decay.
Shortly afterwards, Bill sends in an electromagnetic pulse to the agents' HQ which kills their power and wipes out all their data files, which hinders Vincent, Molokai and Murray's progress in tracking down the President's murderer (Bill). Bill, having hacked the entire FBI database, has now learned all data details of Molokai and Vincent, including their family's names, their family's personal lives, their phone numbers, their emails and their addresses. Vincent has an anger meltdown over how much his personal life has been exposed. With the FBI and a fully armed police squadron arriving, Crystal urges that they both evacuate with their baby, but Bill insists that he stay while only Crystal and Billy run, leading to a minor argument when Crystal stresses that Billy needs a father to look after him.
In the final battle that happens in a forest covered in snow, Bill goes into a gunfight with Molokai, Vincent, police officers and the SWAT team. His wife Crystal and their son Billy were able to flee before the fight began to take refuge inside a house. In the ensuing battle, Bill is able to kill off all of his opponents. After killing off all of Vincent and Molokai's officers, Bill finishes off Molokai while Vincent runs up and shoots Bill in the abdomen several times, before Bill returns fire and also hits Vincent. Since the beginning of his rampage 7 years ago, Bill has finally failed to avoid getting shot and now bleeding badly, he goes to lie next to a tree and peacefully succumbs then dies with a smile.
After Bill dies, news reports spring up alerting that there are mass shootings occurring nationwide that are targeting the wealthy, the politicians and celebrities, and they are all Americans creating anarchy to regain their country after they observed, and became influenced by Bill's lectures. The anarchists execute thousands who are rich or powerful, and the first victims include George W. Bush, Wall Street, FBI, NSA, DEA, Homeland Security, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeffrey R. Immelt (CEO of General Electric), Satya Nadella (CEO of Microsoft) and Rihanna.
The homeless man who Bill berated for not "getting off his ass and doing something" back in Capital Punishment, has heeded Bill's advice and has now become a successful armed robber before he goes on to execute news anchors live on TV to avenge and thank Bill for changing his life.
Personality and Beliefs
Bill Williamson appears to have Antisocial Personality Disorder, making him similar to a psychopath. It is unknown if he was born with this or developed it over time due to society. Bill has an aggressive, militant, far-left political agenda that primarily involves cutting down the world's population to allow enough resources for humanity to survive. Bill believes that overpopulation is the cause of much of the world's problems and seeks to solve this by killing the elite and rich, disabled and sick people and everyone in the third world to ensure that, "maybe, [humanity] can survive". However, as the films go on, Bill reveals that he has more radical beliefs in addition to his views on population control and eugenics.
It can be argued that Bill is a misanthrope in addition to his personality disorder since he has few acquaintances and claims that his actions will ultimately save humanity, but as the films go on, it seems like Bill cares more about his own legacy than the fate of the human race, wishing to become a martyr and die for his cause to inspire others to carry on his agenda.
Views on Science and Truth
Bill is an atheist and is biased against all religions, especially Islam. He sees religions as nothing more than fraudulent scams often aided by the government in exploiting working-class people for their money. Bill goes as far as to call religion "The Great Divider, The Great Controller" of our civilization. He's clearly hellbent on talking people out of following religion and wants everyone to accept atheism because atheism in his eyes is the only freedom from ideologies that brainwash people into thinking prayer works or that giving money to churches will help better their futures.
In the second movie, Bill reiterates Christianity brainwashes children into religious adults who will pay money to churches, and is an outspoken critic of Islam, being highly critical of Saudi Arabia citing that its oppressive regime gives women no rights and executes homosexuals. Being an atheist, Bill is also very pro-science and a strong advocate of global warming, and has complained that many people vehemently reject it, much to his anger.
Being a radical environmentalist, Bill justifies his murders that humans must die for the earth to survive because quoting Jacques Cousteau they converted the planet's water and air into garbage cans.

|“||We're so precious, aren't we? Everyone's gotta live, everyone's gotta be happy. It's a joke. It's an absolute joke. It's uh, it's a downward spiral. To the end of all times and uh, there's no chance that we can survive. I mean 70 million people every year are brought onto this earth. What are they doing? Sucking up our resources. There's too many people. So, what do we do? Just keep them around? Let's kill them! Let's get rid of them! Good, thanks for coming out! But, uh, you know what? We're at capacity. We're at capacity now. So, uh, sorry. No more. No more. So, that's what I'll do. I mean, why not? That's my plan. That's what I wanna do. Let's just clean the world, so that maybe some of us can sustain a little life! So, that's maybe what I'll do. In the future. I'll help you out. I'll help you out and I will cleanse. Make more room for you. I will exhibit my own brand of population control. For you. That's it.||„|
Rampage 2: Capital Punishment
|“||This, my dear viewers, is maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to listen to uncensored media for a few minutes. What I have to say is very important. I had to kill a lot of people and I will get myself killed to get on your television. I made the decision to value your interests higher than my life. I wanna make you wake up and change. But before I tell you what I think you should do, I wanna give you the facts and I mean it, the facts. The NSA tapes every phone call, email, and text on earth on our people like Snowden or Assange. Should give us much needed information to protect democracy, get hunted and prosecuted by the US government. The US government is funded by the rich, and likes to keep people in the dark, ignorant and the brain level of children. They make sure people are busy, making money to survive, to take care of their family, their house, their lawn. They want people thinking they are free, and have a choice, gonna do whatever they want, but they can't. The people that are representing you are bought and paid for to keep you stupid. In your small stupid little world. How can there be no gun control, even though there are monthly massacres? In the USA 11000 people are shot every year. In the UK it's only 300. Why? Because the UK doesn't have guns. People don't have guns. Period. What I have done in the past, and what I'm doing right now is the result of no gun control. There aren't even background checks to filter out people with criminal record. Why is this? Because 50% of the senators and governors are paid by the gun industry. So, wake up. Health care is of course beneficial for at least 95% of the people in America. Basically all of the developed world has health care. Almost 50% of Americans are against it. Based on the perfect brainwashing media machine. The Iraq war was a crime. Powell, Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld lied to the United Nations and the rest of the world. Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction and he had nothing to do with al-Qaeda. But we know our friends, the Saudis financed the 911 attacks, but because of their oil we don't do anything against them. Instead, we send soldiers to die in countries that has nothing to do with domestic terror attacks. Why didn't Obama file charges against the Bush government? Bush cost the taxpayers hundreds of billions and committed war crimes. Why is Obama not doing anything about that? Because he is also paid and a member of the club. More migrants got deported under Obama than under any other president. Why didn't he close Guantanamo Bay where prisoners sit without charges, evidence proved or a court case for over 13 years now? He did not veto the Detainee Provisions and the National Defense Authorization act which codify the indefinite detention of people including Americans without trial. We have a constitutional crisis in the United States. We now have a rogue state. It is a violation of international law. A violation of Magna Carta, that goes back 800 years with what our sense of justice means. Obama should be charged for that and he should go to jail. Speaking of jail, The USA has 5% of the world's population, and 25% of the world's prisoners. People go to jail because they have ten grams of cocaine in their pockets. Half of the prisoners are in jail for drug possession, and more than half of them are black. Why does this absurd situation not get changed? I'll tell you why. Because Washington gets paid to keep it going by the prison industry lobby. Why don't the rich pop stars and film stars and white stockbrokers who use speed, you see everyday, get thrown in jail. Why? ...if you are rich. Do you think because the Morgans, the Gettys, the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers and other criminal assholes who founded America and did something good with their charities, but, you overlook that they stole all their money and they never should have been rich in the first place. What I want from you, the crowd, is this, okay? I want you to change the world, and don't think that this is going to happen peaceful, or you can do it alone. We need to kill the rich. You get out there. You use your weapons. You rip Washington apart. You hunt down the billionaires, the big bosses, the CEOs, the scumbags, the liars, the governors, the lobbyists, the senators. Because they're all the same. You hang them from the first tree that you can find. We need a, we need a cleanse, people. Okay. We need a reboot. We are actually nationwide. We have the best ratings ever. I mean we are now on the map. Everywhere, everybody knows us. We need to destroy that system. But I cannot do this work alone. I need you now. We need to do this together, okay. So I thank you, in advance, for your help. Thank you.||„|
- In the third film, Bill is shown to have directly began a new family after deserting his parents. He has fallen in love with a woman, Crystal, who approves of his mass murders and anarchy, yet she is never as violent or psychotic as Bill is.
- Bill strongly abhors capitalism because he feels that economic inequality is the cause of most problems in the United States. His political ideology resembles that of the Scandinavian model followed in Sweden and Norway where there is strict gun control, government intervention upon wealth gaps and preservation of the environment, universal health care and secularism (Bill being an adamant atheist who condemns systematic religions).
- Bill has a dislike for blockbuster Hollywood films (as does his creator Uwe Boll) since he believes Marvel's The Avengers and Lone Survivor are just propaganda used to distract American citizens from their diminishing economic class status while the richest people steal all of the country's wealth.
- The third film President Down reveals that Bill failed to convince the public to enact a revolution through (necessary) violent means and overthrow the corrupt elite rich-controlled system simply through a nationwide broadcast message back in Capital Punishment, but his assassination of the US President and Vice President successfully convinced the American constituents that they can and must overthrow the system.
- Brendan Fletcher claimed he often had to improvise his own dialogue, or even write the story for the Rampage movies himself due to director Uwe Boll's lack of fluency in English and so a proper screenplay or script was never materialized other than it being about Bill Williamson running after and shooting people.
