Countess Elizabeth Bathory is considered by many historians to be the most prolific female serial killer in history. Stories persist of the vicious torture and brutal murder of hundreds of young girls in 16th century Hungary. But was she really guilty, or was she the victim of a conspiracy of wealthy and powerful people out to get her?

There’s an old saying that there exists a fine line between genius and madness. In 1937, a gifted but mentally disturbed sculptor committed a series of horrific murders that shocked New York City, and brought on one of the biggest manhunts in the city’s history.

One of the darker aspects of some religions, is ritual human sacrifice. Mexico is one of those countries that is steeped in tradition, but some of those traditions are drenched in blood. Hear the stories of the Aztec empire, which was centered around human sacrifice. And hear about some modern tales of human sacrifice, including a 20th century self-proclaimed high priestess who began her own Mexican cult, and demanded human blood in return.

There are thousands of islands scattered across the globe, and many of those islands contain dark and terrifying stories of their own. In this episode we tell you some of these stories, including the tale of an island tomb where the coffins seem to move around on their own, of an island off the coast of Australia that was the location of one of the worst mass murders in history, and of a tiny island near Italy that some people claim is the most haunted place on earth.

Hollywood long ago realized that a lonely and isolated cabin in the woods is an ideal place to set a horror movie. But in real life, cabins in the woods have been the locations of some very real murders. Here are two such stories, including the tale of a group of fur trappers who met their bitter end one winter, and the tale of a single mother of five, who left a terrible situation, only to end up in a nightmare beyond imagination.

New episode! In 1873, three women became trapped on a tiny island off the coast of Maine with a vicious axe murderer in a true story that seems like something straight out of a horror movie.

England has had laws on the books governing the trial of witches since the 1600s. Hear the story of how these witch laws came to be, and how they continued to be put into practice until well into the 20th century, when in 1944 a medium named Helen Duncan became the last woman tried under Britain’s Witchcraft laws.
