Killers in Cold Blood looks inside the dark side of the criminal mind. Taking a glimpse at the men and women who commit heinous acts with a gruesome disregard for human life. They do not conform to what society considers to be 'normal' standards, seemingly to act purely for self-gratification in their own little world of perversion. These are the people who inspire horror movies – shocking the world by murdering for profit, due to rage or for the sheer thrill of it – and the majority of the time making their victims suffer for as long as possible. The difficulty in bringing these monsters to justice is proving whether they are fully aware of what they have done or suffering for some mental illness. Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer are fine examples of men who killed in cold blood, they knew exactly what they were doing, they knew right from wrong, and yet they still committed their crimes.
