Description : Reader Beware: This book contains disturbing stories of true-life murder. Viewer discretion is advised. Serial killers are known for their brutal disregard of human life. Their methods of murder often involve torture, sexual abuse, and cannibalism. Crime scene images reveal the horrific nature of their actions: stomachs disemboweled, limbs severed, and internal organs removed for later consumption. Some killers hunger for the taste of human flesh. Once they capture their victims, they subject them to horrific torture, before butchering them to death and eating their remains. The acts of violence extend further, to drilling holes in the victims' skull, keeping body parts in pickle jars, stewing the meat, and in some cases, serving it to unknowing guests. This book reveals the life and crimes of these killers, while providing chilling accounts of their savage methods of murder. It describes, in unadulterated form, stories of deranged criminals who targeted men, women, and children alike. Though shocking and difficult to stomach, the crimes described within are all true, and offer a window into the mind of a cannibal killer.

Description : True stories of serial killers who cannibalized their victims. Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered and dismembered seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia and cannibalism. Katherine Knight killed her boyfriend and skinned him. She then put his skin on a meat hook, cooked his head and parts of his body and placed them together with vegetables on plates with placecards with his children's names.
Description : Ottis Toole, born at the bottom of the gene pool, retarded and illiterate, had been out of control since early childhood. A severely drug-dependent individual as well as an arsonist, murderer, rapist, and cannibal, he was unsafe under any conditions outside of a secure prison, and perhaps unsafe there. To him, life itself was so unmeaning, and the distinction between living and dead people so blurred, that killing another human being was no more than swatting an annoying fly. Between 1976 and 1982, together with his serial killer buddy, Henry Lee Lucas, Ottis Toole was reported to have committed over three hundred murders. However, the discrediting of the case against his partner in crime, Henry Lee Lucas, for crimes in which Toole had offered collaborating statements created doubts as to whether either was a genuine serial killer or, both merely compliant interviewees who police used to clear unsolved murders from the books. Now, in RAGING CANNIBAL, a screenplay for film by author Brian lee Tucker, offers up a totally new glimpse into the life of Ottis Toole, one never shown before, the eyewitness accounts, personal testimony, and never-before-uncovered evidence providing an in depth loom into one of the most notorious serial killers that ever lived, who was dubbed the nick name, 'the cannibal kid.'
Description : Anthropophagy - humans eating their fellow-humans - creates a curious blend of revulsion and fascination in the 'civilised' Western world. When the perpetrator is a murderer - most commonly a sadistic serial killer - the crime not only shocks but it causes bewilderment. With this 2015 update of her comprehensive 1993 study of cannibalistic killers, Moira Martingale expands her original research about the making of such monsters. Cannibal Killers tracked the phenomenon from five hundred years ago with the notorious Sawney Bean to those whose names became a byword for horror as the twentieth century waned, such as Jeffrey Dahmer.In this updated version, we see that in the twenty-first century cannibals who thirst for human flesh and blood are still around, and alarmingly, they have moved online.
Description : From images of stewed missionaries to Hannibal Lecter's hiss, cannibals have intrigued while evoking horror and repulsion. The label of cannibal has been used throughout history to denigrate a given individual or group. By examining who is labelled cannibal at any given time, we can understand the fears, prejudices, accepted norms and taboos of society at that time. From the cannibal in colonial literature, to the idea of regional Gothic and the hillbilly cannibal, to serial killers, this book examines works by writers and directors including Joseph Conrad, H. Rider Haggard, Thomas Harris, Bret Easton Ellis, Cormac McCarthy, Wes Craven, and Tim Burton. It explores questions of cultural identity and otherness in the modern period, offering an important and original examination of cultural norms and fears with reference to national, economic, linguistic, and sexual identity. Amidst the sharp teeth and horrific appetite of the cannibal, the book examines real fears of over-consumerism and consumption that trouble an ever-growing modern world.
