The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness joined Netflix on Wednesday, and it is already getting rave reviews from viewers.
The four-part series is about one of the most notorious serial killers in US history – David Berkowitz.
From the summer of 1976 until August the following year, Berkowitz was behind eight separate attacks that left 6 dead and 10 wounded.
Christened by the media as the .44 Caliber Killer, he was eventually captured and pled guilty to the crimes, but he later claimed that he didn’t act alone.
His crimes grew into a lifelong obsession for author and journalist Maury Terry, who was convinced that the murders were linked to a satanic cult.
The limited series is the number one trending flick on Netflix at the moment, and viewers have been taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on it.
One viewer tweeted: “Just finished The Sons of Sam on Netflix. Must watch. Especially if you are into conspiracy theories. Absolutely thought provoking and intriguing exploratory narrative that delves deep into the cases beyond the surface.”
Another wrote: “Watching Netflix’s ‘The Sons of Sam’ documentary series, it’s legit addictively chilling. It’s also definitely recommended viewing.”
