Few, if any, of us know what it's like to stare into the eyes of a killer. The cold, dead gaze of someone with no regard for another human's life and, in the case of serial killer Larry DeWayne Hall, enjoys taking that life. On AppleTV+'s upcoming limited series Black Bird, we dive into Hall's life and view it through the eyes of James Keene, another convict who has been sent to elicit a confession from Hall.
Similar to shows like Mindhunter, Black Bird focuses on what makes serial killers do what they do and why they are compelled to do so. Even though it's a dramatized retelling of actual events, Black Bird is a compelling look into the mind of an absolute monster and how doing something as simple as talking to him can nearly destroy someone in the process.
