The 2003 version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is on Spike TV very late tonight. It's said to be based on Gein but you'll be pressed to see many similarities.

Hi Mike,

Will he be contacting any serial killers from unsolved cases?

I imagine Ted is now residing in a warmer climate.

LIVING INSPIRES CONVERSATIONS WITH A SERIAL KILLER (8X60)
London February 7th 2008 Virgin Media Television owned channel LIVING has commissioned a brand new series, Conversations with a Serial Killer, from Twofour Broadcast. The 8-part series traces the lives of some of the most notorious and fascinating serial killers of our time through a blend of documentary, archive material, eye-witness accounts and, putting the unique LIVING twist on the crime genre, also paranormal investigation. The series hopes to open up a spiritual dialogue with deceased infamous murderers, such as Jeffrey Dahmer, Aileen Wurnos and Ted Bundy, as well as documenting their lives and investigating the influences upon their earthly existences. Conversations with a Serial Killer will air exclusively on LIVING in Autumn 2008.

Each episode will feature British investigative journalist Julie McDonald, and American psychic medium and ex cop, Bobby Marchesso, as they look into the lives of one infamous serial killer per episode, tracing their lives and attempting to spiritually communicate with these tortured souls who could be haunting the locations they frequented when they were alive. Julie and Bobby will also track the lives of serial killers Albert DeSalvo (The Boston Strangler), John Wayne Gacy, and Charles Starkweather amongst others, visiting the locations where these renowned serial killers lived, worked and preyed on their victims.



The journey across America offers compelling, yet terrifying, insight into the most complicated killers in history, accessing those who knew them, feared them and caught them. Exposing the dark side of America the team searches for the spirits of these horrific butchers, whose names still haunt the world and have become synonymous with their crimes. There will also be first-hand accounts from surviving victims, psychologists, school teachers, criminologists and psychologists to help connect with what made these killers tick.



Clare Hollywood, Head of Commissioning, LIVING commented: “LIVING has always been at the forefront of paranormal programming and Conversations with a Serial Killer once again moves this genre on. Serial killers continue to darkly fascinate in many ways, and this will be a frightening, insightful paranormal journey into some of history's most fearless serial killers and their existences."



Commissioning editor for LIVING is Mark Sammon, with executive producer for TwoFour Melanie Leach, and directors Chris Williams and Maria Knowles. Series Producer is also Charlotte Wheeler.

Hi all,

I don't see that program from my previous post in the Sunday listings so it must have been put on hold for some reason.

My listings show Capture the Green River Killer on the Lifetime Movie Network (Dish ch. 109) starting at 7pm Sunday. This is a different, by-subscription-only, channel from The Lifetime Channel.

Thanks JM,

OK, that explains it. I thought it was on the regular Lifetime Channel. I'll have to wait and see it when it plays there which will probably be in a few months.

The 1959 film, Jack the Ripper is on AMC very early tomorrow morning (U.S.). I think it's the only movie that sort of follows the Dr. Stanley explanation. Back then, we were desperate for anything.

I watched Borderland last night and thought it was pretty good although it's probably not for everyone. It is sort of like Hostel except it's based on an actual case - Matamoros.
