Albert Fish is a 2007 biographical documentary about a sadomasochistic cannibal child serial killer who lived in Depression-era New York. Produced by John Borowski, the film provides a thorough examination of Fish including the distorted biblical tales he used to justify the torture he inflicted on the young and helpless. Fish, born on May 19, 1870 to a family with a history of mental illness, began a relationship with a telegraph boy who introduced him to the practice of drinking urine and eating feces when he was 12. By 1890, Fish had arrived in New York City where he began working as a male prostitute. In 1898, Fish married a woman nine years younger than himself and had six children. By 1917, his wife had left him for a handyman and Fish was left to take care of their children. At about the same time, Fish began hearing voices and began a practice of self-abuse which included inserting needles into his groin. By 1910, he had committed his first attack on a boy in Wilmington, Delaware. By the age of 55, Fish was experiencing full blown delusions where God commanded him to castrate and torture young boys as penance for his sins. With expert insight from Katherine Ramsland Ph.D., this 86 minute film throughly documents the life and crimes of one America's most horrific serial killers.moreless
