Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’: All the Real Serial Killers, From Ed Kemper to BTK

Netflix’s Mindhunter is loosely based on the non-fiction book Mindhunter by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, former FBI agents who coined many of the terms we use to describe serious criminals today. Douglas and Olshaker invented criminal profiling, especially with serial killers, as part of a large trend. They analyzed the behaviors and private lives of American history’s worst offenders, from Jeffrey Dahmer to Ted Bundy.

If David Fincher’s Mindhunter feels a bit like Silence of the Lambs, that’s because Douglas was the real-life inspiration for fictional FBI Special Agent Jack Crawford, the protagonist in Thomas Harris’s Hannibal Lecter novels. In fact, many of the characters in Mindhunter are based on real people, including the murderers that Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), the character based on Douglas, and his partner Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) interview and discuss. Below is a full explanation of who’s real, who’s imaginary, and how the local news described each string of killings.

After years of playing Nazis and superhero villains, Daniel Brühl has finally landed a role that every young male protagonist can aspire to: the gifted criminal profiler. But this time, it’s in the 19th century!

The Alienist looks like the detective procedural got a gaslamp-lit makeover, with stars Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning teaming up to work as early criminal profilers in 1896, attempting to get into the mind of one of New York City’s first serial killers before they hunt him down.

“Instead of looking to cure a disease of the body, I look to help those who are suffering from illness of the mind,” Daniel Brühl’s Dr. Read more at: http://www.slashfilm.com/tnt-the-alienist-trailer-daniel-bruhl-dakota-fanning-luke-evans/

In the next episode of “Criminal Minds,” the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) led by Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) race against the clock to catch a stealthy killer who uses hi-tech drones to murder his victims.

The trailer for the upcoming installment titled “Killer App” was recently released and showed Prentiss telling an agent the seriousness of the case. “This unsub [unknown subject] has killed almost seven people,” she said chillingly. Apparently, the killer uses military drones in strikes to take down enemy targets. The murderer’s back is shown as he inspects and fixes his state-of-the-art killer drone. These devices prove to be stealthy as one is shown going downwards and looking inside the back of a car.

The case takes a turn for the worse when Prentiss accuses a manager for something that could turn the whole

The week in TV: Our Girl, Snowfall, Norskov, GameFace and more

I’m possibly irrationally biased against Our Girl from the very start, though the first series had a few nice touches. I suspect it’s simply the title, with its reference to “our boys” and unthinking tabloid tub-thumps, still spaffing on about the Falklands. This third series looks to be trying to dishearten me even further.

The premise is that there is a feisty, outspoken, heart-of-gold army medical lass – in the first series it was EastEnders’s Lacey Turner, now it’s Michelle Keegan, ex-Corrie – out there amid the dirt and the danger and the bombs and the macho
