A small town in Wales. A huge true crime cover-up. The Rev is the gruesome true story of one of the most infamous criminal sprees in Welsh history.
1985: Detective Inspector Gwyn Roberts is sent to a quiet seaside town to investigate a series of threatening anonymous letters, leading him to the home of mild-mannered clergymen, the Reverend Emyr Owen. During a routine search, Roberts uncovers a staggering number of books on black magic, cannibalism, and sacrificial ceremonies – a discovery so shocking that the law system would attempt to bury the case. The Reverend was guilty of abusing and mutilating human bodies awaiting burial.
This disturbing yet fascinating story is brought to light with interviews from police officers, psychiatrists, and legal experts, interwoven with dramatic recreations that delve into Owen’s history and unearth questions about his crimes that remain unanswered to this day.
