Nilsen brutally murdered at least 12 young men and boys in the 1970s and 80s but the reasons why he killed has been the subject of much debate over the decades.

Watch the trailer below:


From the makers of Don't F**k With Cats, this documentary offers an insight into Nilsen's world through 250 hours of archive audiotapes that were left in his cell after his death.

From growing up as a young boy in Scotland to becoming a gruesome murderer in London, these are the stories behind the crimes, told by the man himself.

The synopsis reads, "Now, with unique access to a wealth of personal archive left in his cell after his death, including over 250 hours of never-before-published cassette tapes of his private recordings, this film will take us into Nilsen's world."

"Set against the backdrop of 1980s Britain, when mass unemployment drew young men to London in search of their fortunes, only to find themselves destitute and easy prey, and weaving together interviews from police, journalists, survivors, bereaved families, and - for the first time - the killer's own voice, this feature-length documentary explores how Nilsen was able to get away with multiple murders and attacks, unchallenged, for five years."
