Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes | A Thrilling Documentary

In today’s entertainment industry, killing is such a normal part of most popular movies and TV shows that we have become desensitized to it. This should not be the case, but it is. In an industry so desensitized to the horrors of taking another person’s life, it takes a lot to make someone feel for the loss of life. Stories about creative serial killers trend the charts every year, and people throng the theaters in hordes to watch them. I am guilty of the same. But what happens when you turn a serial killing story into a documentary? When you come face to face with the reality of something that has actually happened, it tends to change your perspective on the whole situation. Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes sets out to do exactly that, and does so with incredible success.

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes is a new upcoming documentary that talks about the character in the name, Nilsen. Nilsen was a famous serial killer who killed a number of people over his lifetime. He is well known in the region of Britain, and his story is still told and retold to this day. Such was the horror that he caused in the time that he was active. The murders were all varied in their nature and happened at different times for different reasons. And that is perhaps what makes this documentary so interesting. It gives us a look into the how and why of everything that happened and narrates a very interesting and real story of a serial killer in a manner that we might not have expected. So keep reading to find out more about Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes.

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes Overview

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes is the story of Nilsen, told from the beginning. When Nilsen was young, he often had thoughts about killing people and had strange desires. This is quite unusual for young people, naturally. Netflix recently released the trailer for the documentary. And needless to say, it was quite chilling and horrifying. During his days, around the time from 1978 to 1983, Nilsen killed 15 people, all of whom were either men or young boys. They were all from around where he lived. And quite courageously, Nilsen tried to hide all their bodies in his own house. Which sounds like such a stupid thing to do, but Nilsen did it anyway. A criminal with a passion, I must say. The documentary really shows how the mind of a killer works, and it is weird.

The way Nilsen orchestrated all these killings is also quite interesting. It is not as if he just did a random killing on the street and brought the corpse home. No, not at all. Nilsen carefully and diligently inspected and investigated each of his victims, found out all that he needed to find about them, and then made his move. He would manipulate and coerce the people into coming to his house, where he would commit the deed. He would kill them and hide them in the house itself, under the floorboards where no one will ever find them. Again, this is quite a horrific scenario and is sure to scare even the mightiest of men and women. However, desensitized as we are, we might not find it to affect us at all. Nevertheless, the documentary shows the killings and the mess that they leave. The scene surely rocked me to my bone.
