Epix and Blumhouse’s upcoming four-part true-crime docuseries “Fall River” explores a story of sex, satanic cults, and murder, and it’s set to premiere this week! Ahead of the premiere, we’ve got a new clip to share with you.
“In 1979 – almost 90 years after infamous, accused murderer Lizzie Borden’s notorious acquittal – Fall River, Massachusetts would become home to another terrifying series of crimes. When three young women were killed in a streak of brutal murders, police alleged a satanic cult was practicing human sacrifice. The cult leader, a man named Carl Drew, was captured and sent to prison for life without parole.
Twenty years after the trial, the lead investigator Paul Carey became so haunted by inconsistencies in the stories that he re-investigated his own case after he retired. Evidence surfaced that brought the entire story into question. Now through exclusive interviews, including intimate conversations with Drew, new witnesses, and illuminating evidence, this documentary series will tell the true story of a town caught in the grips of the paranoia and fear around the 1980s Satanic Panic and will shed light on murders that were thought to have been solved.”
The series is directed and executive produced by James Buddy Day. Jason Blum, Jeremy Gold, Mary Lisio executive produce for Blumhouse Television. Michael Wright and Jill Burkhart also serve as executive producers for EPIX ®.
“Fall River” premieres on May 16 at 10 PM on EPIX, from Blumhouse and Pyramid Productions.
