Killer Kash

Serial killers and true crime as a category in entertainment is a massive industry but the often sensationalist tone and distribution is morally questionable. Are the media and Hollywood exploiting the morbid fascination human beings possess and are symbols of evil necessary for society to function? For my project I wanted to explore these questions and also examine the roots of this phenomenon/problem by researching and illustrating Freud’s theories on subconscious sexual and violent thoughts, basic genetic wiring and the cycle of abuse where examples of extreme immorality often stem from. This project is mainly for people who consume content created about serial killers as I myself do. I want people to question this content even if it is packaged as a product for intellectuals with a passion for human psychology. This project is also for people who have been affected by any of the themes discussed so that they may be able to examine their situation objectively and hopefully find some peace.
