Trailer Released for Netflix True-Crime Series “The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness”

Netflix has released a trailer for their upcoming limited series that takes a deep-dive into the case of 1970’s New York serial killer David Berkowitz, dubbed the “Son of Sam”. In “The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness”, journalist and Ultimate Evil author Maury Terry gives her evidence as to why he believes the killer did not act alone. Terry has spent decades attempting to prove that the web of darkness behind the murders went deeper than anyone imagined – and his pursuit of that elusive truth would eventually cost him everything…

In the series, which arrives May 5th, filmmaker Joshua Zeman (“Cropsey”, “Murder Mountain”)ROPSEY, MURDER MOUNTAIN) draws on archival news footage, conversations with the people closest to the investigation, and Terry’s own words and case files to tell a cautionary tale of a man who went down a rabbit hole and never came out. But was Maury Terry just chasing ghosts – or are the true Sons of Sam still out there…

When David Berkowitz was arrested in 1977, New York City breathed easy now that the monster behind the Son of Sam killings was behind bars. But one man has spent decades trying to prove that Berkowitz didn’t act alone.
