In the summer of 1985, the city of Los Angeles was held in a grip of terror by an elusive killer. He came at night entering through unlocked doors and windows, targeting houses at random, blending in with the shadows, as silent and deadly as cyanide gas. Brutalizing and robbing his victims, forcing them to swear to Satan, driven by heavy metal music and narcotics and what he believed was the power of Satan himself. It seemed no one was safe from who the press dubbed “The Night Stalker.”
