TUBI EXCLUSIVE: Sins of the Father: The Green River Killer (2022)

What would it be like to grow up as the child of one of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history? This Tubi original documentary explores what that’s like for the son of Gary Ridgway, the infamous Green River Killer.

Directed by Victoria Duley (who produced several other Tubi exclusives like Famously Haunted: Amityville and Scariest Monsters in America) and written by Chip Selby, this film explores the life and murders of Gary Ridgway, who is currently serving 49 consecutive life sentences for the murder of 49 women through the 80s and 90s.

Beyond interviewing Ridgeway, his son Matthew, ex-wife and neighbors, this also features the lead detective on the case Dave Reichert, former commander of the Green River Task Force Frank Adamson, Seattle reporter Olivia LaVoice, former co-worker Diane LaPointe, The Crime Weekly Podcast podcaster Stephanie Harlowe and forensic psychotherapist Michael Drane. There are also dramatizations to show what it was like to be part of Ridgeway’s life.

While this may not have the budget of a Dateline or other network true crime show, it does have plenty to tell you about the case. Then again, if you’re watching this, chances are you already know all about the Green River Killer and you’ll see this as another generic take on true crime. You certainly have plenty of options of what to watch when it comes to murder porn, right?

You can watch this on Tubi.
