In case you'd forgotten, David Fincher's latest project is a Netflix serial killer drama called Mindhunter, and the BMD crew is all very excited about it. Based on former FBI profiler John Douglas' iconic book of the same name, Mindhunter follows two FBI agents as they interview a number of well-known serial killers (Ed Kemper cameo alert!) on their way to better understanding the criminal mind.
Given the fact that Fincher's executive producing (alongside Charlize Theron!), you might not be surprised to learn that Mindhunter looks ominous, darkly comic and right up our alley. Take a look at this new trailer.
Yeah, we're all in on this one.
Here's a plot synopsis, via Wikipedia:
"Set in 1979 — in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation — Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), who interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how such criminals think and apply this knowledge to solving ongoing cases."
Mindhunter arrives on Netflix this Friday. I know what I'm doing on Saturday, how about you folks?
