Mindhunter: Who is the Mysterious Killer Glimpsed Throughout the Series?

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This article contains spoilers for the first season of Mindhunter, and Zodiac.

It’s as though director and executive producer David Fincher posed us a very simple question: “what do you want?” And we replied “10 hours of Zodiac, please.” To which, in his wisdom, he cheerfully responded “say no more fam.”

Yes, ’70s-set binge-fodder Mindhunter arrived on Netflix this past Friday and ended up monopolizing our entire weekend – we tore through all 10 episodes of the relentlessly creepy (and unexpectedly funny) FBI drama, based on the legendary book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

After the final credits rolled, we were left with a few tantalizing threads still dangling. What happened to that cat? Has Holden finally opened an emotional floodgate within himself that he’ll struggle to shut? What happened to that cat?

Could Maura Murray Be Found In 2017? The Hosts Of Oxygen’s Series Are Hopeful That Answers Are Coming

‘Mindhunter’: meet the stars of David Fincher’s murderous new Netflix series

David Fincher is largely responsible for Netflix‘s current dominance. Back in 2013, the Fight Club director kickstarted the on-demand revolution with House Of Cards. Now he’s back with a new series that’s similarly paced, but even more spine-tingling.

Mindhunterbased on Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas’ true crime bestseller – follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), who interview imprisoned serial killers to try and understand how they think. These interview scenes are as tense as anything you’ve seen on television: think The Wire but with psycho-thriller elements.

We caught up with Groff and McCallany to find out just how gruesome these murderous maniacs really were.

The first serial killer we meet in ‘Mindhunter’ is quite terrifying, isn’t he?

Holt McCallany: “Oh yeah. Some of the crimes Ed Kemper committed are truly astonishing. Cutting his mother’s head off for example. Then putting her voice box down

Meena Singh shoots Netflix’s true crime docu series “The Confession Tapes” on the Canon C300 Mark II

Meena Singh chose to shoot Netflix’s true crime docu series “The Confession Tapes” on the Canon C300 Mark II. “The Confession Tapes” is a true crime documentary series that investigates cases where people convicted of murder claim their confessions were coerced, involuntary or false.

Here at Newsshooter we thought it would be a good idea to ask her about her work on the series and why she chose the C300 Mark II.

Please give us some background on how you started in the industry and tell us a little about yourself.

New true crime TV series should reopen debate over cameras in the courtroom

Shutterstock.com.

It’s been almost 30 years since the Menendez brothers returned to their Beverly Hills, California, home and found their parents brutally murdered. The brothers’ call to a 911 operator set in motion a criminal investigation that would eventually lead to their arrest and conviction.

My previous column discussed the “true crime” trend and the implications when Hollywood gets it wrong or embellishes the facts. The genre is often used to tell the story of how the crime itself played out. It’s after
