This true crime series looks at the criminal careers and backstories of notorious American killers. Like most true crime series, it depends on re-enactments, archival footage and interviews with participants in the various investigations. If you looked into the eyes of a killer, would you know? In American Monster, you find out. For the first time, viewers get closer than ever to some of America's most shocking and surprising crimes. Filled with never-before-seen footage of these devils in disguise, from home movie shots of them playing with their kids to musical performances at high school, from the church cook-out to the wedding video, American Monster interweaves twisting-turning stories of astonishing crimes, with 'behind-the-scenes' footage of killers at their seemingly most innocent.
