Plot Synopsis

Using re-recreations, archive footage, original documents from police case files, and first-person interviews with investigators, family members of victims and forensic experts, COPYCAT KILLERS goes behind the headlines of real-life murder cases that copy memorable slayings seen in Hollywood movies. Each one-hour episode features a murder scene and law enforcement's hunt for the killer. Whether it's two high school students terrorizing and killing a female classmate to copy the horror blockbuster SCREAM or the gruesome acts of pig farmer and serial killer, Robert Pickton, who copied HANNIBAL and fed his victims to his pigs -- these horrific scenes actually happened but very few people know the real stories that led to these killings. Season 2 of COPYCAT KILLERS premiered on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on ReelzChannel. In the season opener, "Taxi Driver," one man takes a page out of the film's script as he attempts to assassinate the President hoping to impress the film's star. Other new episodes in Season 2 include murder cases copied from the TV show DEXTER and movies FREDDY VS. JASON, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, HANNIBAL, SAW and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED. On Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, ReelzChannel premiered the third season of COPYCAT KILLERS. In the season opener, "The Dark Knight," on a warm summer evening in Aurora, Colorado, an excited audience sits down for the opening midnight showing of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, but little do they know, this will be a night to remember, and not because of the film. A new season of COPYCAT KILLERS premiered on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on ReelzChannel, with a season debut entitled "The Sopranos." Tony Soprano was a man who could seemingly get away with anything -- even murder. But for 20-year-old Jason Bautista and his 15-year-old half-brother Michael Montejo, one particular SOPRANOS episode of manslaughter and dismemberment inspired an even more sinister and tragic act. Just like Tony, Jason and Michael attempted to bring an end to the source of all their troubles: their own mother.
COPYCAT KILLERS returned with new episodes on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 9pm ET/6pm PT on ReelzChannel. New hour-long episodes kick off with the copycat story based on the mega teen vampire franchise TWILIGHT. Lucas Markham are a pair of teenage lovers convinced that the only way they can truly be together is to end the life of Kim's mother Elizabeth. Elizabeth believes Lucas' bad boy tendencies are going to set her daughter down the wrong path and has attempted to break up the couple numerous times. Kim and Lucas, however, are not dissuaded. Inspired by the TWILIGHT movies, where not even death can stand in the way of true love, the two decide to kill Kim's mother so they can finally be together. Dubbed the "Twilight Killers" by the media the two make headlines as Britain's youngest double murderers. Additional new episodes feature CASINO, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, and FIGHT CLUB in addition to the Slenderman case.
