Exclusive Images from The Poughkeepsie Tapes!

Exclusive pic from The Poughkeepsie Tapes!The good folks at MGM just provided Dread Central with two exclusive pics from the upcoming cinema verite film The Poughkeepsie Tapes, directed by John Dowdle, one of which is to your right, the other slightly below. For those of you wondering, we also have the official synopsis for The Poughkeeepsie Tapes, which opens in theaters on February 8th, 2008…

In 2001, police in Poughkeepsie New York made a shocking discovery—ten bodies buried in the backyard of a residential house. Astonishingly, that was only the beginning.

Inside the home, police uncovered over 800 neatly organized videotapes detailing the exploits of one man’s decade-long crime spree. The most disturbing part of the find, was that the killer had filmed all of the footage himself—from his first moments stalking his victims to their last seconds alive.

Exclusive pic from The Poughkeepsie Tapes!The Poughkeepsie Tapes examines the homicides—incorporating interviews from criminal experts, testimony from the only victim ever rescued alive, and chilling footage shot from the killer’s own camera. All of which document the twisted path of a serial killer as never before.

Beginning in 1988, a wave of missing person reports and unsolved murders from New York to Pennsylvania, began to alarm law enforcement officials. Many of the strange disappearances and dead victims held similarities. Soon the authorities realized they were dealing with a serial killer. The hunt to identify and capture the killer was layered with troubling facts and haunting events, eventually ending at the house where the tapes were found. Unfortunately, the discovery left more questions than answers. Did the killer leave the tapes intentionally? Do the tapes hold hidden clues? Is he still active?

This film dares to show what has never been presented to the public before—the evidence, the puzzle, and the footage of The Poughkeepsie Tapes.
