Who narrates Netflix’s Sons of Sam?

Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness delves deep into the case of David Berkowitz.

Berkowitz, infamously known as the Son of Sam and the .44 Caliber Killer is an American serial killer from New York.

Berkowitz murdered six people and wounded seven others across numerous attacks in New York City between 1976 and 1977.

On June 12, 1978, Berkowitz was sentenced to six consecutive life sentences.

He received the maximum sentence of 25 years to life for each of the six ‘Son of Sam’ killings.

In the mid-1990s, Berkowitz claimed numerous times he did not work alone and part of a satanic cult that carried out the killings as part of ritual murder.

Journalist Maury Terry’s investigations into Berkowitz claims and the satanic cult are the focus of the Netflix documentary, The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness.

Director Joshua Zeman has drawn upon Terry’s written work to piece the four-part series together.

Paul Giamatti serves as the voice-over for the four-part series, narrating excerpts from Terry’s book The Ultimate Evil and other records.

Sadly, the real Maury Terry died from heart failure on December 10, 2015. He was 69-years-old at the time of his death.

Before his death, Terry said all of his research notes and records to director Joshua Zeman who would go on to create The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness.

After realising Giamatti was the narrator of the series fans flocked to Twitter to share their surprise.

One viewer tweeted: “Paul Giamatti actually has the best voice for a documentary narrator.”

A second viewer said: “I recently finished 5 season of ‘Billions’, so I’m appalled that it took me till episode 4 of ‘Sons of Sam’ to realize the narrator is Paul Giamatti.”

A third viewer added: “Paul Giamatti was a great choice for the narrator of #SonsOfSam.”
