Henry Howard Holmes was known as the greatest criminal of his time in the United States. He was born in 1861 and died in 1896, but throughout his life he left behind the lifeless bodies of at least 27 innocent people, according to his own confession.

Through period photographs, illustrations, documents and interviews with historians, this independently made documentary dissects the story of a man who went from anonymity to become the infamous first serial killer in U.S. history.
