I have had a fascination with serial killers for as long as I can remember. Many of them are horrid, many were cunning and extremely smart, and others were thrill killers. I plan on putting a series together of some of the more horrendous ones, and wanted to know which of the killers in American history provoked the most thoughts on different characters. Movies have been made about some of them, and some of those were just plain bad, either in their writing or direction. For instance, Norman Bates from Psycho was based on Ed Gein, and that turned out to be a huge franchise. Another one that went to film was The Night Stalker, which was horrible.
