Evil Lives Here: The Killer Speaks

Evil hides in the shadows. It lies and deceives... and it may be lurking inside your own home.

Evil Lives Here: The Killer Speaks offers unprecedented insight into the mind of a killer.

From the team behind ID's series Evil Lives Here, which offers a platform for survivors of terrifying crimes to share their stories, this series also goes inside individuals' emotional accounts of some of the most shocking acts of violence and takes their stories a step further by going behind prison walls to speak with the killer themselves.

The result is a chilling conversation unlike anything seen before, exploring the years leading to the crime and the hell the perpetrators put their own loved ones through.

Evil Lives Here: The Killer Speaks asks questions the killers have never been asked before, resulting in powerful, disturbing and contentious encounters.

In the series premiere, "Body in a Barrel": A young woman, Michelle, revisits her father's brutal, horrific act of violence that changed her entire world and pushes for her father to hold himself accountable for his crimes.
