With nowhere to turn in their frantic search for Seattle’s prolific “Green River Killer,” authorities enlist serial killer Ted Bundy to profile their prey in The Riverman, coming to DVD January 12 from North American Motion Pictures Entertainment. Below you’ll find the full details, along with the cover art.Based on real-life events recounted in the best-selling book, The Riverman: Ted Bundy and I Hunt for the Green River Killer (co-written by Robert Keppel, former chief criminal investigator for the attorney general of Washington state), The Riverman recounts Keppel’s efforts to track down mass murderer Gary Ridgeway, aka the Green River Killer.
With 10 unsolved murders weighing on his mind, Keppel (Bruce Greenwood, Star Trek, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Déjà Vu) recruits imprisoned serial killer Ted Bundy (Cary Elwes, The Princess Bride, SAW, Alphabet Killer and the upcoming A Christmas Carol) to help find the killer-at-large.
Sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole in 2003, Ridgeway was convicted
of 48 murders, but confessed to 71 … and authorities suspect it was actually more than 90.
The Riverman is presented in full frame with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 (1:78) and 2.0 stereo.
Special features include stills gallery and closed captioning.
To support the title in the marketplace, NAMP has announced a retail promotion: Buy three DVDs of The Riverman and receive one free Blu-ray disc of the film (Blu-ray available only through this promotional offer).
