Represents the entire life of Herman Mudgett, AKA Holmes and his castle of horrors.

Also known as Dr. torture, Holmes designed his own building with torture chambers, where they rented rooms to unsuspecting victims visiting the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.

It focuses on the life of Dr. Holmes of crime and evil (1861-1896).

Tapping with images instead of the last round Holmes’ as his childhood home in New Hampshire and the Philadelphia courtroom where the trial took place.

It’s a visual tour-de-force of reenactments, expert interviews, and vintage photography.
