In the early 20th century, Dusseldorf, Germany and the surrounding areas were under attack by a sadistic killer. From murdering children to drinking blood, this man was a sexual pervert and serial killer whose victim list was at least twenty-four deep. Sadistic and cruel, he strangled, beat and stabbed men, women and children—not for the thrill of the murder, but for the sexual thrill of seeing their blood flow. He was a thief, an arsonist, a rapist, a murderer and a cannibal. This is Peter Kürten. The Vampire of Düsseldorf.
