Storyline

In 1994, police dug up the bodies of nine young women from the home of Gloucester builder Fred West and his prostitute wife Rose. Police tapes, never disclosed at the time, reveal how Fred West had begun a series of shocking confessions after the severed corpse of his teenage daughter, Heather, was found under the patio of their Cromwell Street home. West's seemingly normal home movies record how he turned the family home into a brothel for his wife Rose, as his children played downstairs. And West's solicitor, Howard Ogden, tells how police used West's belief that the ghosts of those he murdered had come to haunt him in a desperate bid to find the last bodies in Cromwell Street. Step into the disturbing and macabre world that lay behind some of the most horrifying crimes ever committed. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Creepy, hideous, sexually depraved people...
2 March 2018 | by jasminhameisterSee all my reviews

This has to be the most incredible documentary made on the sickest couple ever! Rosemary West was a S&M pervert who prostituted herself out for pleasure, while the sadistic Fred West was enjoying all the sex he could get, with anyone he could and killing the girls Rosemary wanted killed or burying all the girls that Rosemary killed ... All the murders were as incomprehensible as the couple themselves ....
