I Killed John Lennon
I Killed John Lennon takes viewers inside the twisted mind of the man who murdered legendary singer-songwriter John Lennon.
35 years ago, on the evening of 8 December 1980, Mark Chapman shot John Lennon four times outside the famous Dakota apartment building opposite Central Park in New York. By murdering the iconic founder of The Beatles and one of the most famous people on the planet, Chapman was immediately branded one of the most notorious killers of the 20th Century. But why did this middle class young man, who had idolised The Beatles, kill his hero?
Having subsequently been sentenced to 20 years to life imprisonment, it was not until a decade later in a series of taped interviews with famed journalist Jack Jones that convicted killer Mark Chapman explained what motivated him to commit this cowardly murder.
In this unique documentary, through reconstructions and using the actual taped voice of Mark Chapman, the assassination is chillingly recreated for the viewer by Chapman himself. Various interviews with police personnel and psychiatrists also help unravel the motives behind one of the most infamous murderers in modern history.
