Wild Eye Releasing has announced the nationwide release of the first film to depict the unsolved case of The Long Island Serial Killer. The August 25th release dramatizes the brutal crimes of a serial killer who has been dumping the bodies of sex workers on the barren stretch of Gilgo Beach for years. Joseph DiPietro’s debut feature places a fictitious coed in the path of the sadistic killer, who is believed responsible for the death of up to seventeen sex workers, and is still at large in the New York area.
A serial killer is at large in the edges of New York City, luring prostitutes from the Internet and leaving a trail of bodies along Gilgo Beach in Long Island. While the friends and families of the victims search for answers, the police remain unable to solve the murders or stop him from taunting the grieving survivors. A young, down on her luck college student turns to the escort business in desperation, but she unknowingly places herself directly in the path of one of New York’s most vicious serial killers.
The DVD release of The Long Island Serial Killer (SRP $19.95) will exclusively include two feature length cast and crew commentaries, deleted scenes and trailers.
