Zodiac (2007) Trailer #1 | Movieclips Classic Trailers

Check out the trailer starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo!

 

In the late 1960s and 1970s,

fear grips the city of San Francisco

as a serial killer called Zodiac stalks its residents.

Investigators (Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Edwards)

and reporters (Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr.)

become obsessed with learning the killer's identity

and bringing him to justice.

Meanwhile, Zodiac claims victim after victim

and taunts the authorities with cryptic messages,

cyphers and menacing phone calls.

Zodiac killer case

 

The Zodiac Killer

is believed to have shot and killed

five people in Northern California

in 1968 and 1969,

though he claimed

to have killed many more.

 

He seemed to revel in publicity

and wrote several letters

published in local newspapers

that included cryptograms.

 

He maintained the hidden clues

would lead police to him.

 

But police have never been able

to decipher the supposed messages.

 

Still, he became known as the Zodiac Killer

because of the astrological symbols

contained in his letters.

serial murderer > Golden State Killer

 

For decades,

a killer was on the loose in California,

terrorizing victims

from the southern coast to the Central Valley

to the Bay Area and the tidy subdivisions

near Sacramento.

 

As the years went by,

he bore his way

into the state’s consciousness,

provoking manhunts and television shows,

and the obsessive sleuthing

of amateur detectives.

 

He went by many nicknames

— East Area Rapist,

the Original Night Stalker,

the Visalia Ransacker —

before a last one took hold:

the Golden State Killer.

 

The final accounting of his crime spree

was 13 known murders and nearly 50 rapes.

 

(...)

 

The crimes associated with the man

who would become known

as the Golden State Killer

began in the mid-1970s,

and by 1977,

after a series of horrifying rapes of women

in their homes in Sacramento County,

he was nicknamed the East Area Rapist.

 

The community held packed public forums

to discuss the cases that seemed

to be occurring once every month.

 

“The fear in the community

was like something I had never seen before,”

Carol Daly,

a former Sacramento sheriff’s detective,

told The New York Times in 2018,

after Mr. DeAngelo was arrested.

 

“People were afraid

wherever they went.”

 

Mr. DeAngelo,

working as a police officer at the time,

soon moved from rape to murder,

killing a married couple,

Brian and Katie Maggiore,

while they were walking their dog

in the city of Rancho Cordova in 1978.

 

But in 1986,

the crime wave suddenly stopped,

leading to decades of speculation.

 

Had the killer died?

Had he moved to another state?

It turns out,

he settled into a quiet life

in the Sacramento suburbs

— working at a Save Mart grocery store

in Roseville —

where he was eventually captured

in 2018.
