Richard Ramirez is one of the most notorious and interesting killers in history, one that has psychologists still scratching their heads 35 years later. What made the Night Stalker different from other slayers is that there was absolutely no pattern to his killings, he slaughtered men, women and children and never in the same ways. His youngest victim was six and his oldest was 82.
He wasn’t killing one type of person, either geographically, racially or financially, which meant that everyone was a possible victim, the entire city of Los Angeles was looking down the barrel of a gun.
This is the perfect subject for an expansive long form series and now Netflix has stepped up to the plate with the announcement of Night Stalker : The Hunt For A Serial Killer, a four part series that premieres on January 13th 2021, exclusively on the streaming platform. Get your first look below :
