Now, the disturbing story is being made into a movie,, which premieres Sunday on Investigation Discovery.The film stars Guillermo Diaz, who bears a striking resemblance to the real-life serial killer.“He's got no remorse," Diaz told Inside Edition.But what Bradshaw — and the viewing audience — didn’t know was that Alcala was a serial killer who was in the midst of a rampage.He had already murdered at least two women in Southern California.Somehow, bachelorette Cheryl Bradshaw sensed something was wrong.
When they woke up, he would repeat the process before finally killing them.
The couple won tennis lessons and a trip to Magic Mountain, but Bradshaw declined to go on the date. (In another insane twist, Mills would go on to play the fat-free yogurt shop owner on Seinfeld.) "The people [in the audience] were actually snickering and even low-murmuring boos as to his answers," bachelor number three Armand Cerami recalled that year, as well.
Alcala's death sentence in the Samsoe murder was overturned twice.
But in 2010, he was once again sentenced to death for the murder of five women, though authorities have still been unable to pin down a precise victim count.
Last month, Alcala, who is currently held at California State Prison, Corcoran, was charged in the 1977 cold case murder of Christine Ruth Thornton.
