A Deep Dive into Serial Killer TV

(Premium content) Premium content

Quality or trash, Adrian Martin eats up the genre. From 'The Sons of Sam' to 'Manhunt', 'Zodiac' and 'The Serpent' he plays detective and traces a murky web of connections.

The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness

Netflix’s The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness is a documentary series that manages to tell you no more, at the end of its fourth and final episode, than it did in the opening ten minutes of its first episode. Did David Berkowitz, the self-proclaimed ‘Son of Sam’, act alone in his horrific killing spree of the mid 1970s? If not, was he part of a Satanic cult? And why did certain people to whom Berkowitz can be linked die so soon after his arrest, and in such odd circumstances? Is there still the same evil cult out there, at large, ready to strike down innocent people?
