'The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness '
Netflix is taking another look at the case that captivated the world in the late 1970s. On Wednesday, May 5, the streamer is debuting its newest true crime documentary, The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness, which details journalist and author Maury Terry’s investigation into the case of one of America’s most notorious serial murderers. While David Berkowitz was ultimately charged and convicted in the string of crimes, Terry believed the case was much more expansive and spent decades attempting to prove Berkowtiz had not acted alone. The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness "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."prevnext
