About the series
Fall River is a four-part docuseries detailing a slew of terrifying crimes that took place in Fall River, Massachusetts. The story begins 90 years after the acquittal of infamous accused murderess Lizzy Borden in the same town. In 1979, three young women were brutally murdered and local police alleged that a satanic cult was practicing human sacrifice. Carl Drew, the cult leader, was sent to prison for life without parole.
The lead investigator for those murders, Paul Carey, begins re-investigating the case after he retires. This decision came after he was haunted by the inconsistencies surrounding the case. According to a release from Blumhouse, new witnesses and evidence allow for this docuseries to tell the true story of what transpired in Fall River in 1979.
The teaser trailer sets an incredibly creepy scene giving a brief look at the show. It is quite shiver-inducing.
