The filmmaking collective known as RKSS delivered an alt-history apocalypse with 2015’s Turbo Kid, now directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell are taking us back to the titular Summer of ’84 for a thoroughly throwback serial killer yarn. Ahead of the film’s Sundance debut, Gunpowder Sky has debuted the first trailer and it has a distinctly familiar Stranger Things vibe, dripping with Amblin/Stephen King stylized atmosphere — not to mention a buncha kids on bikes — but keeping Turbo Kid in mind, I’m thinking this retro thriller is gonna be a little darker and more twisted.
Summer of ’84 follows a group on young teens who spend a hazy summer coming of age and assembling the clues to track down the so-called Cape May Killer terrorizing their town. There’s just one problem — all signs point to one of the

Writing to the presenter of ITV’s ‘Calendar’ news show, Christine Talbot, Sutcliffe said: “Yes, I did some bad things, but I just want people to know that I did not attack or murder any males.”
Sutcliffe, who has been told he will never be released from prison, where he is serving 20 life sentences for the murder of 13 women between 1975 and 1980, said he is being “100 percent honest.”
The former Bradford truck driver killed the women using knives, screwdrivers and hammers.
The letter follows an ITV investigation into whether Sutcliffe was also behind the murder

Scorsese told The Toronto Sun that the film’s script is still being written, so not too much is known about it just yet, but there are some very interesting things you should know about DiCaprio’s serial killer character.
The actor has played numerous of intriguing, complicated characters throughout his decades-long career, so it’s no surprise that his next role looks like it’ll be equally as outrageous as the rest. As the film will show, H.H.

In case you missed the news, Zac Efron has been cast to play Ted Bundy in an upcoming film that is sure to give us all nightmares. So, who is the notorious necrophiliac and serial killer? Here’s what you need to know.
1.) Ted Bundy’s Total Murder Count Has Never Been Confirmed
Although he was convicted of murder and sentenced to the death penalty in 1980, Ted Bundy remained adamant that he was innocent. Six years later in April 1986, Ted finally confessed a “full range of depredations”, according to his Wikipedia page. Although it’s reported he only confessed to 30 murders over the course of his serial killing days, authorities believe he may have been responsible for even more than that. He was executed via electric chair in 1989 at 42 years old, so his final death toll may never be known.
2.) Ted Wasn’t Just

I learn something new every day. And it is a good thing, because I am sure I forget many old things daily. I often learn something new when someone asks me a nature question that I can’t answer. In researching the issue for someone else, I become smarter myself. Other times I spot something in the woods and hurry home to grab the books and the internet to figure out what it was. Just remember, if you have questions, there are probably answers out there somewhere. It is just a matter of figuring it out. Here are some examples from the last year or two.
A couple of years ago someone emailed me asking what animal was tucking grass under her windowsill. The answer came easier than I thought. I went to Google and typed in “grass under windowsill” and up popped information about the interesting “grass-carrying wasp.” I

Unexplainable things happened in the Tacoma house where serial killer Ted Bundy grew up.
So many things, in fact, that a contractor hired to remodel the home penciled Bible scriptures on the walls and brought in two pastors to bless the house.
“I’m not one to believe a lot of this stuff, but this house made me a believer,” said Casey Clopton, the contractor.
A cry for help appeared on a window as crew members worked in the basement. Heavy furniture wedged into a wall toppled over. Doors and cabinets seemed to open themselves.
It all started in September, when David Truong bought the 1,400-square-foot home with plans to redo and flip it.
He didn’t research its history, so he didn’t know the local lore or who had lived there.
The little blue house was built in 1946, the same year Bundy was born in Vermont. The Bundy family moved into the home

IF YOU’RE a true-crime freak like me, you’ll devour HBO’s Beware the Slenderman. But you probably won’t remember it. That’s because Irene Taylor Brodsky’s documentary—which examines the case of two Wisconsin 12-year-olds, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, who attempted to murder one of their classmates in 2014 as an apparent sacrifice to an invented internet character—falls into a familiar trap by failing to adequately address the victim of the central crime, making for a one-sided viewing experience.
There’s nothing new about true crime stories that erase the victims: Aside from writers like Ann Rule, who always tried to give voice to the victims in her books, the genre’s historic blind spot carries over to its newest offerings, from a forthcoming dramatization of the life of the Green River Killer that promises to turn a tragedy that affected only women into a story about two men, to last year’s
