Netflix dropped on Tuesday a chilling trailer for its upcoming series ‘Mindhunter,’ which takes audiences behind the scenes and into the minds of serial killers.
The series is set to premiere on October 13, promising a quite scary and chilling Halloween.
If you are obsessed with ‘Making a Murderer’, a psychology buff, or a fan of Jonathan Groff, allow us, and Netflix, to present ‘Mindhunter.’
But make no mistake, while Groff has starred in many musical films before, Frozen, Glee, My Dreams, and even earned a Tony nomination as King George III in ‘Hamilton‘, ‘Mindhunter’ is no musical show, it’s rather bloody.
The series drops October 13, but no worries, there’s time to get your scary on as Halloween approaches.
‘Mindhunter,’ adapted from a novel by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, is set in 1979 and follows two FBI agents. One played by Jonathan Groff and the other by Holt McCallany. They are tasked with understanding the fractured psyches of serial killers. All in order to crack existing investigations and prevent future murders.
The series will also mark the return of ‘Fringe’ star Anna Torv. She’ll be playing a psychologist based on Dr. Ann Wolbert Burgess.
Basically, it’s about the people who looked at murder as a pathology and invented our modern understanding of a “serial killer”. Someone whose pathology extends beyond acting out of anger or hate or greed and murdering, say, a family member or bank teller.
And the trailer is just a glimpse into a journey which looks to feature various twists and turns as the agents delve deeper into darker territory.
Three years after bringing “Amazing Amy” Dunne to the big screen in ‘Gone Girl’, David Fincher is back with another sinister drama.
It may be his first TV series. But certainly not the first time Fincher has tried his hand at disturbing detective stories. Having directed ‘Seven’, ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Zodiac’ in the past.
‘Mindhunter’ is based on the best-selling nonfiction book ‘Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit’ written by the original hunter of minds himself, FBI Agent John Douglas.
To make it even scarier, FBI Agent John Douglas had his own based character. ‘Silence of the Lambs’, fictional FBI agent Jack Crawford.
While the series adaptation is yet to be released, it has been already given a second season order by the streaming giant.
David Fincher was also one of the minds behind Netflix’s first big prestige hit, ‘House of Cards‘, and we definitely smell a hit.
