James Ellroy Presents Bazaar Bizarre

2004 NR

When a man named Chris Bryson emerged in small-town Kansas in 1988 naked and bloodied, he told of being tortured by a local businessman, Bob Berdella, who traded in strange artifacts he sold at his self-named shop, the Bizarre Bazaar. It turns out Berdella had killed a number of people, cutting them up and serving the meat at his shop. Writer James Ellroy hosts this ghoulish look into a real-life murder case with all the makings of pulp fiction.
