New four-part Australian true crime series AFTER THE NIGHT is now streaming


The gripping new four-part Australian true crime original documentary series After The Night is now streaming on Stan.

Created and directed by Perth-born Thomas Meadmore, the new series delves into the unbelievable true story about one of Australia’s deadliest serial killers Eric Edgar Cooke, known as ‘The Night Caller,’ who in the 1960s terrorised and destroyed the peaceful Perth community, murdering eight people and assaulting and attempting to kill many, many more.

The series explores the killer’s harrowing legacy of tragedy, grief, responsibility and redemption – as seen through the eyes of a filmmaker returning to his childhood home, Perth, and spending time with those closest to the killer and his victims, whose lives he altered irrevocably.

With unprecedented access to the killer’s wife and the two men wrongly convicted of his crimes, this is a series about the devastating aftermath of serial murder, and how his victims have come together through grief and injustice in the pursuit of closure and redemption.

Stan Original Documentary Series After the Night is created and directed by Thomas Meadmore, the acclaimed Australian filmmaker behind the documentaries The Spy Who Fell to Earth, The Outsider and How to Lose Jobs & Alienate Girlfriends.

It’s produced by BAFTA- nominated Salon Pictures (Churchill, McQueen) and EQ Media Group (Body Hack, Uncharted with Sam Neill, Koala Rescue, Rhys Darby: Big in Japan), with support from Screen Australia.

All episodes of documentary series After The Night are now streaming now, on Stan
