Episode 115. Killing in Serial

The inexplicable draw towards the dark and twisted psyche of serial killers is the focus today as Alex and Jonathan talk about three films revolving around killers real and fictional, The Night of the Hunter (1955), The Silence of the Lambs (1991), and Zodiac (2007). We discuss elements that give depth to an otherwise sensational subject matter, the various portrayals of the legal process, and why we tend to be so infatuated with the darkest sides of humanity.
