Directed and produced by Terry Carlyon (The Brotherhood, Conviction), No Mercy No Remorse is a forensic examination of the events surrounding the capture of ‘Frankston Serial Killer’ Paul Charles Denyer who murdered three women in Frankston, Melbourne across a seven-week period in 1993.

No Mercy, No Remorse includes the police tapes from Denyer’s interrogation, as detectives worked tirelessly through the night to unravel Denyer’s version of events. It took more than 1500 questions by lead investigator, Detective Senior Sergeant Rod Wilson, and his team to break Denyer’s story – an interview still considered to be a murder interrogation masterclass. Viewers will witness the breakthrough that helped detectives secure a confession. For the first time, the detectives who investigated the 1993 Frankston murders speak about the case and how they captured Paul Charles Denyer.

The score for No Mercy, No Remorse picked up an ARIA Award nomination for Best Soundtrack Album, and two APRA Screen Music Award nominations for Best Music in a Documentray, and Best Soundtrack Album (2022)

"The documentary is all the more powerful for eschewing sensation as detectives involved recall the urgency of the investigation, and as police video shows the chilling casualness with which Denyer described the details of his crimes."
