“In dealing with an almost unbelievable character such as H.H. Holmes,
the temptation is to give in to sexploitation and sleaze, as so many have
done. When I wrote The Torture Doctor, I was determined not to
go that route because this is a case where the truth is far stranger and
more riveting than fiction. I am so glad that John Borowski has followed
the same path with his documentary. It is historically accurate AND suspenseful,
with great production values. This is the film I would have produced, were
I a cinematic wizard rather than a mere author. I dare you to watch it with
the lights out.”
Allan Eckert, Author of The
“John Borowski has accomplished a superlative piece of work on America's
first known serial killer. His use of photos of the era, the time and the
interior of the "castle" were very well chosen, and the narration
is excellent. My hat is certainly off to John Borowski on such a gigantic
and enthralling job on a subject for which so little factual documentation
exists; yet he has used what there is with great skill and effectiveness.”
If I seem just a bit too effusive about
just some little serial-killer doc and its first-time director, then forgive
me. But if you spent as much time as I do watching movies as soulless as
they are expensive, then you'd recognize this low-profile, high-quality
docu-thriller as cause for high praise indeed. - Scott Weinberg
Its absorbing throughout;
showing a serial killer who you may not have heard of, but now you will
remember him well. Reinforcements come in mighty quickly with Making
of H.H. Holmes where Borowski demonstrates in 20 minutes what Hollywood
should do with the making-of featurettes on their DVDs. The Trailers
section shows that Borowski has impressive marketing savvy. Man, is
he good! - Rory Aronsky
TORTURE CHAMBERS - VATS OF ACID - SECRET PASSAGEWAYS
At the height of his criminal career, the infamous Dr. H.H. Holmes designed
his castle of horrors in Chicago, where he rented rooms to unsuspecting
victims visiting the 1893 World's Fair. Further benefiting from his victims,
Holmes sold their skeletons to local medical schools.
The first ever feature-length
film depicting the entire life of Herman Mudgett, alias H.H. Holmes.
Produced over a three-year period, the film focuses on Dr.
Holmes' entire life of crime and villainy (1861-1896). This incredible true
story is threaded with on-location footage from Holmes' past haunts, 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, H.H. Holmes: America's First Serial Killer
promises to be an exciting rollercoaster ride of suspense and chills.
