DiCaprio & Scorsese Unite Again for America’s Top Serial Killer

As we updated you in the above text that both Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have decided to bring back Larson’s most popular book named ‘The Devil in the White City’ to the silver screen.

The book tells an unforgettable story of a serial killer who is none other than H.H. Holmes.

The kind of act he does is something unimaginable. He builds a kind of torture chambers hotel and tries to prey on young ladies who join to attend the world Fair in Chicago in the year 1893.

The duo has decided to narrate the story written in the book in creative ways to the silver screen.

The story is going to be about H.H.Holmes- The first serial killer of America. The reason why this movie has been favorite among the audience is mainly because DiCaprio is playing the role of Holmes (the Devil).

As per the reports pouring in, the upcoming movie will reveal how Holmes had a deep knowledge of medicine.

He was actually a scientist of sorts. He even had the facility of a lab along with a crematorium right into his basement. Most of the times, he liked to torture all his victims way too brutally that no one would ever like to believe.

In order to torture his victims, he first had to strip of their flesh after boiling them down and then finally sold them in the form of skeleton to the universities and medical colleges.

The reason why he first abducted all those young ladies from the famous world’s fair in Chicago and then murdered them brutally is just because he enjoyed doing all this.

One thing that came to the surface about those women who surprisingly disappeared from the world’s fair is that they were all alone and had never traveled this far alone.

The Chicago fair actually attracted all those young ladies who had never experienced to be away from their homes. And this is how they became an easy target for someone like Holmes.

In order to act like Holmes, DiCaprio must be taking it as a challenge. This is because it is never easy to portray such kind of roles on the silver screen. By looking at him, it seems that DiCaprio is all set to take it as a challenge.
