HLN’s Very Scary People

Post by sherbetbizarre » Tue Apr 13, 2021 4:56 am

I've only seen the double episode they did on Ed Kemper, but that was pretty well done...
Following its highest-rated season to date, Donnie Wahlberg returns to host the third season of HLN’s Original Series Very Scary People, a six-episode HLN Original Series that takes a closer look at some of the most frightening killers in recent history. Each two-hour episode traces the history, psychology, and motives of these elusive criminals and how they were eventually caught.

“The Amityville Horror” – Ron “Butch” DeFeo (May 16)

In November 1974, six members of the DeFeo family were found murdered inside their beautiful seaside home. The mother, father, and four of their children were shot in the back as they lay sleeping in their beds. The bodies were discovered by the only family member left alive – the oldest son Butch DeFeo. What really happened that night in Amityville? Who murdered the DeFeo family and why? What caused the strange events in the house near the sea? Parapsychologists and psychics descend on the house to investigate claims of levitating objects and demonic possession in an attempt to explain why, 50 years later, this house is still a source of nightmares.

Ed Kemper is a pretty interesting person. He was portrayed in Mind Hunter on Netflix - the actor who portrayed him did a pretty good job. Very convincing.

I would not have regarded Butch DeFeo as a scary person compared to Ed Kemper though.

As well as your old friend Christopher Berry-Dee...and many other of the usual suspects...who just spewed the same old BS.

Lots of old footage...and a few new faces...so still worth a watch.

BTW...it was shown in two parts.
