THE BOSTON STRANGLER: THE UNTOLD STORY gives a terrifying insight into the mind of Albert De Salvo, the wisecracking small time criminal who confessed to the horrific crimes of the 'Boston Strangler'.
It's Boston in the early 1960's, and the police are baffled by a series of sickening murders. Detective John Marsden believes that there is more than one killer at large, but his superiors disagree and are keen to quickly have someone arrested and the case closed.
Albert De Salvo is the sharp-witted, small-time criminal who finds himself a suspect in the strangler cases that are wreaking havoc in Boston. After an unrelated arrest, De Salvo becomes cellmates with the manipulative Frank Asarian, who knows a lot more about the murders than he reveals...
Asarian concocts a plan that will see the duo gain notoriety from the killings and guide them to the reward money promised by the police to anyone who can lead them to the killer. DeSalvo has never killed anyone, but as he expects a lengthy jail sentence anyway, what difference does it make if people think he is the strangler?
For years the police believed that they had convicted a guilty man in the infamous Boston Stranglings - but they were wrong...
Written and directed by Michael Feifer (B.T.K.) and starring David Faustino (TV's Married With Children), Corin Nemec (TV's Stargate SG-1) and Andrew Divoff (TV's Lost), this disturbing account of one of the most terrifying serial sex murderers in modern history is told in truly savage detail in THE BOSTON STRANGLER: THE UNTOLD STORY.
