Netflix has released the trailer for Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story, a new documentary coming to Netflix this spring.

Jimmy Savile

Everyone in the UK knows the truth about Jimmy Savile. He was an extremely dangerous and vile paedophile who abused over 450 people, many of whom were kids. But for everyone who doesn’t know his story, this documentary introduces you to this evil and shows very clearly how he fooled an entire nation into believing he was doing good.

Savile died in 2011, aged 84, having never been brought to justice for his crimes and is thought to be one of Britain’s most prolific sex offenders.

A year after Savile died, an ITV documentary was the first to shed light on his sexual abuse. This new film:

“will consider some of his friendships with famous faces and the Royal Family, and how he got away with so much despite being in the public eye for so long.”

This definitely is a horror story.

Here’s the trailer:
