Publisher's Summary

Discover the real-life inspirations behind history’s most infamous serial killers: John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, and so many more.

Gothic media moguls Kelly Florence and Meg Hafdahl - authors of The Science of Monsters, The Science of Women in Horror, and The Science of Stephen King, and co-hosts of the Horror Rewind podcast called “the best horror film podcast out there” by Film Daddy - present a guide to the serial killers who inspired the movies and media we all know and love. Delve into the brutal truth behind horror’s secret: Many monsters portrayed on the silver screen are based on true murderers. Uncover the truth behind the real monsters of horror, answering such questions as: 

  • What is the science behind serial killers’ motivations like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy? 
  • How did detectives discover the identities of criminals like the Boston Strangler and the BTK Strangler?
  • Has science made it possible to unmask Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer? 
  • What is the science behind female versus male serial killers? 

Through interviews, film analysis, and bone-chilling discoveries, join Kelly and Meg as they learn about the horrors of true crime through the decades.
