Written by Vince Dajani, Tartarus is a psychological crime thriller set around one of America's most prolific serial killers.
Based on a true story of an unsolved series of murders, Tartarus follows two converging storylines in a format that has never-been-done before in major films.
With twists, turns and a deeper mystery for the audience to piece together along the way, Tartarus takes inspiration from majorly-successful TV series like True Detective and The Staircase.
After multiple rounds of rewrites, Vince considers Tartarus to be his best work yet.
