At the height of his criminal career, the infamous Dr. H.H. Holmes designed

Holmes sold their skeletons to local medical schools.
This incredible true story is threaded with on-location footage such as his childhood home in New Hampshire and the Philadelphia courtroom where his trial was held. A visual tour-de-force of reenactments, expert interviews, and period photography.
