Movie Info

Inspired by Sheriff David Reichert's memoir Chasing the Devil: My Twenty-Year Quest to Capture the Green River Killer, this Lifetime Movie Network mini-series details how the killer who stalked Washington State for two decades was finally captured and brought to justice. An elusive madman has the citizens of Washington State locking their doors. Just when it begins to seem as if the killer will never get caught, however, a young woman named Helen "Hel" Remus' (Amy Davidson) has a chance encounter with the Green River Killer that leaves her forever changed. Meanwhile, local Sheriff David Reichert (Tom Cavanagh) puts both his family and career on the line to see that justice is served. In a last ditch bid to save any more innocent girls from being slaughtered, Sheriff Reichert seeks the advice of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy (James Marsters), whose expertise on the topic at hand may give the frustrated lawman just the lead he needs to crack the case.

Audience Reviews for The Capture of the Green River Killer

One of the most pathetic TV movie based on real tragedy. The execution is terribly predictable, and its likewise horrible dialogues only make it worse. Not a single performance is credible.

The real-life hunt for a notorious serial killer, as seen through the partial, self-justifying perspective of the detective in charge of the investigation, Dave Reichert. Many people at the time, and some still, believe this detective was pretty inept. The killings continued for many years; it was a DNA match that finally brought the cops to the culprit, whom they'd let slip through their hands long before. In this made for TV movie though this detective Reichert is the one and only hero of the piece, guided by religious visions (seriously!), till the Case is Closed.

So sad and VERY long (it was originally a mini-series), but it was captivating.
