Mr. Death the rise and fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. / Lions Gate Films presents Independent Film Channel Productions in association with Channel 4 presents a Fourth Floor/Scout production of an Errol Morris Film ; produced by Michael Williams, David Collins, Dorothy Aufiero ; produced & directed by Errol Morris.
Provocative and chilling true story of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., the son of a prison worker and a self-taught execution expert who consulted with prisons across the country to make capital punishment more humane. When Leuchter is called in as a high-profile expert in a sensationalistic Canadian trial, his ego, bravado, and absurd testimony reach national media prominence. Ironically, what Leuchter thought was going to be an apex in his career only ruins it.
