Hollywood made them do it… This new series chronicles the real-life copy cat crimes and criminals inspired by blockbuster movies and TV series. The series features hits like Scream, Fatal Attraction, Natural Born Killers, Hannibal, Heathers and others where real life has imitated the silver screen.

Each episode details the real life crime and its parallels to a Hollywood hit with dramatic recreations and insight from police detectives, psychologists, and other experts familiar with the case and film. 

Series 3 - Ep 4: Money Train

Token clerk Harry Kaufman went to work at a Brooklyn subway station like any other day; having no idea his life was in danger. That day, two men named Vincent Ellerbe and James Irons created a fatal fire in the token clerk’s booth. Like the brothers in Money Train, when trying to rob the train station, Vincent and James end up killing an innocent man in the flames.

Series 3 - Ep 2: Legend of Lizzie Borden

James Cushing loves the movie The Legend of Lizzie Borden so much that he decides to follow in its footsteps. As the famous rhyme goes, Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.

When 14-year-old Kim Edwards’ mother Elizabeth attempts to separate Kim from her bad boy lover Lucas Markham, the teen couple decides they need to take Elizabeth out of the picture.
