Delving deep into the twisted actions of Hannibal Lecter–type murderers, Cannibal Serial Killers profiles the depraved individuals who prolong their horrific crimes beyond the thrill of the chase to a perverse ritualized finale.

ALBERT FISH, who spent nine days feasting on the remains of an innocent little girl
JEFFREY DAHMER, whose refrigerator was packed with the body parts of his 17 victims
ANDREI CHIKATILO, who brutally slayed and dismembered 53 people in southeastern Russia
FRITZ HAARMANN, who drank his victims’ blood and sold their flesh on the black market
STANLEY BAKER, who cut out a young man’s heart and devoured it while it was still beating
JOACHIM KROLL, who cooked a stew of carrots, potatoes and a small child’s hand
