Garrow

PLATTSBURGH, NY – The Strand Center for the Arts is excited to announce the film Garrow, will be screened at the Strand Center Theatre at 25 Brinkerhoff Street, Plattsburgh on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.

This film is a dark and dramatic re-creation of the life and crimes of Robert Francis Garrow, and the twisted trail of torture that he executed upon his innocent victims. Garrow was a serial rapist and murderer whose reign of terror paralyzed the North Country between the years of 1960 & 1978. Born in Mineville, New York in 1936, Garrow’s childhood was and endless cycle of unimaginable horror. Beatings, sexual abuse, bestiality and bloodshed. As an adult, he would become a sadomasochist, rapist and serial killer. The exact number of his victims to this day remains uncertain. A knife wielding psychopath that could charm his victims before carving them to death. Robert Garrow was clever and cunning. He was able to manipulate the law, fake his own paralysis, escape from prison, and avoid capture for over a decade.
