Evil has the face of an angel in Saloon Media’s new docu-drama Handsome Devils premiering Friday, August 29 at 8pm ET/PT as part of an intriguing new crime block on Slice™, a Shaw Media network.
Handsome Devils looks at America’s most notorious lady-killers as they charm, lure and then entrap women before conning them out of everything they own or killing them in cold blood.
From New Orleans slasher Zack Bowen an Iraq Vet who falls for a local waitress. First comes love, then comes violence, then comes decapitation with scattered body parts in pots and pans; to charismatic Rod Ferrell the vampire killer who is fascinated by vampirism and starts his own coven of blood sucking teenage followers. His lust for power quickly leads to brutal violence that spirals out of control. These are just a couple of examples of what Handsome Devils explores with real-life crimes of passion.
“We’re thrilled that Slice has chosen to run with our 10-part series” says Saloon Media’s Executive Producer Michael Kot. “Handsome Devils is packed with suspense and gripping plot twists that not only reveal true fatal attractions but that looks really can kill.”
