“How do we stay ahead of crazy if don’t know how crazy thinks?” That’s the mantra behind the new series Mindhunter from Netflix looks entirely intriguing, tapping into the crazy minds of serial killers, especially coming from master storyteller David Fincher.

The series follows two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany), who in 1979, specialize in speaking with murderers who have committed horrendous crimes when the term “serial killer” was just being invented. They go around to different police stations, teaching their techniques to detectives so they can understand how to catch these killers.

Mindhunter premieres October 13 on Netflix.
