HBO's 'Tales Of The Grim Sleeper' Doc Chronicles A 25-Year Killing Spree

HBO

If "True Detective" kept you on the edge of your seat, and you love true crime shows, HBO's latest documentary film, "Tales of the Grim Sleeper," is right up your alley. The doc from Nick Broomfield, also known for 1998's "Kurt & Courtney" and 2003's "Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer," investigates one man's 25-year killing spree in South Central Los Angeles and the women who were his victims.

After alleged serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr. was accused in 2010 of murdering 10 women between 1985 and the time of his arrest, Broomfield decided to visit South Central to find out what happened. "Tales of the Grim Sleeper" not only gives a voice to the many victims and women who knew of the crimes at the time, but offers a look at the black community's distrust of the Los Angeles Police Department. Check out the exclusive trailer for the film, which opens in limited theaters this December and premieres on HBO in April 2015.
