He's killed over 125 people, one at a time… sometimes just for practice.

After years of silence, "The Iceman" speaks. In two separate interviews, nearly ten years apart, Richard Kuklinski, a notorious killer-for-hire and top enforcer for the Gambino crime family, tells his unusual story and reveals on camera the gruesome details of his crimes, some of which are told here for the first time.

The Iceman: Confessions Of A Mafia Hitman depicts the incredible life of a man who was raised on violence - becoming immune to it, from his first taste of revenge, to his Mafia "audition" and his career as a favorite "enforcer." All the while he kept his work life secret from his adoring wife, his children, and the neighbors.

Kuklinski killed by gun, by knife, by Molotov cocktail, by cyanide and by other unorthodox weapons. He tells a particularly grim story of how he once shot a stranger in the forehead with a crossbow. It wasn't a contract hit, it wasn't personal and it wasn't about money. "I just wanted to see if this thing worked," he says dryly.

In 1986, after three years with a task force bearing down on him, Kuklinski was betrayed by "the only man I didn't kill." He continues to serve a multiple life sentence in Trenton Maximum Security Prison. The documentary concludes: "The files on the Iceman will never be closed as long as the number and identities of the people he killed remain unknown."
