H.H Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer (2004)

Torture chambers, acid vats, greased chutes and gassing rooms were just some of the devices of death designed by the Torture Doctor, H.H. Holmes in his castle of horrors… “H.H Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer” is a terrific documentary by John Borowski that traces Holmes’ entire life as a criminal mastermind….

“Depicts the entire life of Herman Mudgett, AKA Holmes, and his castle of horrors. Also known as the torture doctor, Holmes designed his own building, complete with torture chambers, where he rented rooms to unsuspecting victims visiting the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Focuses on Dr. Holmes’ entire life of crime and villainy (1861-1896). Threaded with on-location footage from Holmes’ past haunts, such as his childhood home in New Hampshire and the Philadelphia courtroom where his trial was held. It’s a visual tour-de-force of reenactments, expert interviews, and period photography.”… IMBD

    When I clicked on your video (the H.H.Holmes. one),it was completely drowned out by a really offensuve, racist, hip-hop song at high volume: “Party Like A White Girl”, apparently an ad for something that piggybacked along with the launch of the video. It was really stupid and insulting. Thanks.
