Abstract One of Britain's most notorious serial killers, Dennis Nilsen, had an insatiable appetite for killing. Behind the façade of a mild mannered civil servant hid a killer of pure evil. Nilsen killed 15 men but his first victim was a 14-year-old boy, Stephen Holmes. In a story that has never been told before, Nilsen murdered Stephen Holmes and lived with his corpse for 8 months. It set Nilsen on a journey that would only end when he killed 14 more men. Nilsen's prison psychiatrist, the arresting officer, and a former lover all contribute to this powerful and disturbing film.
