  • Why are we all so bloody obsessed with serial killers?

    The trailer for Mindhunter has been released and we're already hooked. Of course we are, it's about murderers.


    • 05 Sep 2017

    Netflix has released the first trailer for new series Mindhunter that drops all ten episodes on the streaming service on October 13. The show is produced by House of Cards’ David Fincher (as well as Charlize Theron), and the trailer shows two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany), interviewing captured ‘serial killers’ (considered brand new terminology in 1979 when the show is set) to work out what makes them tick, and then passing on what they’ve learned to local policemen to help them with future murder cases.

    A mugshot of Charles Manson and magazine cover featuring The Son of Sam flash up as a voiceover explains what they’re trying to achieve by fraternising with brutal murderers.

    And everyone’s reaction in the Glamour office was something like this:

    OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH

    On BBC1, Rellik starts in September, created by the team behind the highly successful The Missing, and telling the story of a serial killer in reverse, starting with his capture and then travelling backwards to the beginning of his crimes.

    Then later this year, My Friend Dahmer, the story of notorious American serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer, hits the cinema. It shows the teenage outsider during his high school years, before he went on to murder 17 boys and men between 1978 and 1991. He was also known as the ‘Milwaukee Cannibal’.

    They're all on our Watch Next lists, but what is it about a documentary (Making a Murderer, The Keepers), a TV show (Broadchurch, The Fall), a podcast (Serial, Accused), or a feature film (Silence of the Lambs) about horrific, brutal killers that has us hooked? Are we just a nation of sickos?

    No (phew), says leading psychologist Jo Hemmings.

    “Much of it is about the thrill and the excitement that we crave in order to get that stimulating burst of adrenaline – it’s a hormone that is both powerful and addictive,” she says. “There’s a euphoria to watching something so extreme and often brutal, that is so far removed from our own everyday life. The addictive nature of adrenaline makes us feel compelled to watch more – while we remain both fascinated and yet uncomprehending. It also feeds our darkest fears, yet in a way which we can control at will but switching off or watching something else.”

    Er, except we can’t seem to stop ourselves from rolling onto the next episode, no matter how much we’ve had the bejesus scared out of us. Apparently, that's not weird either.

    “I don’t know of any studies on it, but I would think that this combo probably creates one of the likeliest scenarios for binge watching a series,” says Jo.

    So, relax everyone, we're TOTALLY normal.
