You’ve booked a room in a nice hotel that everyone calls “The Castle.” You quickly realize things are not what it seems here.
Doors with spikes attached. Vaults filled with acid. Secret peepholes in the rooms. Staircases that start and stop out of nowhere.
You see the “elasticity machine” it’s supposed to stretch your body so you can be taller. The owner wants to create a new race of giants…
Everything feels so strange. Why the weird maze like layout? And who is H. H. Holmes?
The hardworking FBI agent was on his way to a meeting when he noticed the large crack on the passenger window of his car. How is he going to explain that?
He had a lie for the large wound on his hand. What about the deep scratches all over his neck? Surely he could come up with something.
Now the only thing left to take care of - was the decomposing body in his trunk.
Nothing an FBI agent can’t handle.

That was what they put their faith in. But they were wrong. They wouldn’t be rescued for another 72 days and only 16 would get out alive.
Most people collect ordinary things - paintings, books, baseball cards. But what if you could collect your darkest desires? Two men decide they will collect women to be held captive in their torture bunker.
The men started gathering all their weapons of torture - power drills, clamps, gags, and pliers… the last thing they needed was a video camera. Because they were going to film it all.
The snuff film director, the collector, and the serial killer.
When you step into this Walgreens it feels like any other - aisles filled with cosmetics, household goods, and a pharmacy. The employees are kind but they’re harboring their own dark secrets.
The woman in cosmetics had inappropriate relations with a German Shepherd and her ex boyfriend refuses to get rid of the incriminating pictures.
The store manager has a deadly liking for underage girls.
Another employee is plotting the murder of 3 people.
But is this really more sinister than your local Walgreens?
She died twice on that 12 story bridge.
The first time - she was thrown off the bridge by two men in hopes of killing her. This would be the only way their night of sick torture would stay secret.
The second time - 19 years later. The same bridge. The same spot. The same 120 feet fall.
Are the events connected? How does someone die twice?
A man with a briefcase entered the cockpit of Western Flight 701. The man tells the pilots there are 2 bombs on the plane and a grenade in his suitcase.
For 20 hours - a couple terrorized the entire flight in hopes of having their demands met. They wanted $3 million dollars in cash, 5 parachutes, a woman on trial for murder to be handed over to them, and a flight to Vietnam.
And for decades they got away with it - because the sky is the limit.
A family of 4 is startled awake by two masked men - they tell them that everything is going to be okay. We just want money - that’s all.

They knew something was different about their family. The sisters saw it. They had guests doing chores - completely nude - in the house. Guests being duct-taped to the walls.
They had a man jumping from their roof onto his bare feet over and over again. Until his legs broke.
Even all this pain - was nothing compared to the humiliation and psychological torture taking place… what was really going on here? Who would finally tell?
Dear Mr. John Wayne Gacy…
That’s how it all started… One letter to the “Clown Killer” who was responsible for 33 murders of young boys - and Jason was hooked.
For months he developed relationships and even visited with John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Ramirez, and Charles Manson. He wanted to get inside their heads - but what happens if they get inside his first?
Why do so many people go missing in National Parks? Alien conspiracy theory? Government experiments? Or just lost in nature?
In this case - it’s none of the above. It’s a serial killer that leaves a trail of bloodshed and a decapitated head bobbing in a stream in Yosemite.
Once they catch the killer that’s when the real mystery begins - wasn’t his little brother a national hero? Didn’t they make TV shows about this family?
How did one brother become America’s sweetheart and the other America’s heartless serial killer?
