The Poughkeepsie Tapes Overview

Police in Poughkeepsie New York make a shocking discovery—10 bodies buried in the backyard of a residential house. Astonishingly, that's only the beginning. Inside the home, police uncover over 800 neatly organized videotapes detailing the exploits of one man's decade-long crime spree. The most disturbing part is that the killer filmed all of the footage himself—from his first moments stalking his victims to their last seconds alive.

This faux documentary examines the homicides—incorporating interviews from criminal experts, testimony from the only victim rescued alive, and chilling footage shot from the killer's own camera. All of which document the twisted path of a serial killer as never before.
