Murder Hotel

HH Holmes began his career of murder in 1888, while Jack The Ripper was infamously at work in London.

Though not as well known today as the Ripper, the Chicago-based Holmes was far more prolific.

He finally confessed to 28 horrific killings, and was implicated in 200 more, after a private detective made a series of gruesome discoveries in Holmes' mansion-cum-boarding house, a place purpose-built for perversion, murder and the disposal of bodies.

Hanged in May 1896, his final words were "I built a castle for the pleasure of killing my fellow beings".

Murder Hotel is the chilling story of America's first serial killer, featuring a CGI recreation of the elaborate 60-room
