H.H. Holmes: America's First Serial Killer is a 2004 documentary regarding surrounding the life and villainy of H.H. Holmes. Based on Erik Larson's book The Devil in the White City and narrated by Tony Jay, this documentary tells the terrifying tale of the killer who was dubbed America's Jack the Ripper. H.H. Holmes was born Herman Webster Mudgett in New Hampshire in 1861. After a troubled childhood and several swindles and schemes, Holmes moved to Chicago where he would open what would be known as his murder castle. Holmes bought land and got to work on a large complex which would house various businesses. Above the businesses there were mazes of stairs that went nowhere, strange hallways, doors that opened to brick walls, and other architectural oddities. Holmes would then murder his mostly female employees in terrifying ways including dropping people into the basement, gassing people, and dissecting bodies. Holmes would cash in on life insurance policies then sell their organs and bones to medical students.moreless
