Based on a true story, the three-night miniseries follows police as they try to track down a killer
What is it about serial killers that makes them so alluring?
Investigation Discovery’s first scripted drama seeks to explore that question in its new series Serial Thriller: Angel of Decay. Based on a true story, the three-night miniseries, which premiered Sunday, follows police as they try to track down a killer in the Pacific Northwest in the 1970s.
In an exclusive clip from Monday night’s installment, three investigators on the case discuss the killer’s profile – and what makes him so attractive to his female victims.
“Why do they keep falling for it? I mean, why do they go off with an unknown guy? This loser,” asks Roger (played by Demetri Goritsas).
“I think he loves women, I think he knows what they want and he likes that he knows it,” answers Kathy (Hilary Connell). “Entrapment is part of the game. He can’t resist it.”
“If he’s going to get anywhere near them, he’s got to be magnetic,” she concludes.
Serial Thriller: Angel of Decay continues Monday at 10 p.m. ET on ID.
