In the 1920’s in New York City, children’s bodies were turning up mutilated and dismembered in alley ways and streets all over Gotham. The residents thought the act was too gruesome for an ordinary person, so they believed it to be the work of the boogieman.

As far back as ancient Egypt and Babylonia, half humans were consuming the blood of their victims. Half men, half beast, these vampires of the night were associated with the boogieman.

Albert Fish, the notorious “Vampire of Brooklyn”, was born May 19, 1870 in Washington DC. His father died when he was very young and he ended up at an orphanage. He witnessed gruesome beatings, and although he should have been terrified, he enjoyed watching young boys getting whipped.
