'Confessions Of A Serial Killer With Piers Morgan' Has Just Landed On Netflix

'Confessions Of A Serial Killer With Piers Morgan' Has Just Landed On Netflix

Confessions of a Serial Killer with Piers Morgan has just dropped on Netflix, and it's your true crime binge sorted.

The documentary, which originally aired on ITV last year, shows Piers travelling to a prison in Florida to interview serial killer Bernard Giles.

Check out a harrowing clip below:

Giles murdered five women and girls during a three-month spree during the 1970s at the age of just 20.

He picked up unsuspecting hitchhikers (a practice which was much more common at the time) before driving them at gunpoint to a remote spot, sexually assaulting and killing them.

The killer previously admitted that he spent most of his life knowing that he had an evil desire to cause sexual violence against women.

In the doc, Piers sets out to discover what drives the atrocities of a serial killer like him, and chats face-to-face with the murderer about his life and crimes.

Good Morning Britain host Piers hears the killer say: "It was my life's passion. To murder... to murder women.

"For me, this was my life's passion up to that point."

The documentary also draws some fascinating revelations out of the serial killer - some of which have never come to light before.

The murderer acknowledges that even as a teenager, he knew he was destined to kill. He admits that he first experienced the nascent thrill of sexual violence as a six year old boy, when playing a game with his female next door neighbour.

"I remember straddling her and strangling her," he explains. "Playing... but that was my initial sexual imprint.

"From that point on, anything that I saw or read that had anything to do with sexual violence against a woman was a sexual impulse.

"As a child growing up, I became obsessed with this."

By the time he was an adult, Giles says he was unable to control his urges to cause harm onto others.

Talking about the first of his first cold-blooded murders, he admits he felt: "Very stimulated, very provoked. I mean, what is your passion in life? What is the thing you like to do more than anything else? You're doing it and you are so there you can almost see the atoms vibrating... it's hard to describe."

When Piers questions the criteria for his victims, Giles replies simply: "Access."

Piers then points out: "That made you an unbelievably dangerous man for any young woman."

To which Bernard responds: "Yes, sir. I'm not defending my position - I'm describing the position. It was what it was and where I was at."

Whether you've seen it before or not, this one really isn't one to miss.

Confessions of a Serial Killer with Piers Morgan is available to watch on Netflix now.
