Arguably the most famous serial killer of all time, Jack the Ripper has inspired such fascination, the term ‘Ripperology’ was coined to refer to a deep, expert-level study of his crimes, and countless people proudly identify themselves as Ripperologists. 
The notorious murderer has also inspired a number of books and movies, including Alfred Hitchcock’s 1927 thriller “The Lodger: The Story of the London Fog.”
Based on the very first novelization of the Jack the Ripper case, “The Lodger” builds on one theory considered by the detectives charged with investigating the Ripper murders– was it possible some unwitting landlady was actually harboring the brutal killer in her boarding house?
In this fascinating episode we discuss the true crime that inspired Hitchcock’s silent film “The Lodger,” the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. Not only do we walk through the case still regarded as one of history’s greatest mysteries, but we also share behind-the-scenes stories about the classic thriller.

It features one of the most famous scenes in film history, which happens to take place in a shower. And according to the American Film Institute, it also ranks as the 14th greatest movie of all time.
We are of course talking about Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic horror film “Psycho,” starring Janet Leigh, Anthony Perkins, and Vera Miles.
But what some may not realize is that the true crime story that inspired Hitchcock’s classic is every bit as infamous and horrific as the movie itself. 
In this fascinating episode we not only discuss behind-the scenes stories and analysis of the iconic “Psycho,” but also share the story of serial killer Ed Gein and his shocking crimes.

What happens when a young woman begins to suspect her sophisticated Uncle Charlie– who happens to be staying in her family’s home for a visit– is the notorious “Merry Widow” killer? That’s the question addressed by Hitchcock’s 1943 classic “Shadow of a Doubt.”
The thriller is reportedly Hitchcock’s favorite movie, one that features Teresa Wright as the strong, plucky heroine, and Joseph Cotten in the role of the charming, sociopathic villain.
Tragically, however, the serial killer upon whom this movie is loosely based was even darker and his crimes more horrific than the one Hitchcock brought to life. 
In this episode we delve into the true crime behind “Shadow of a Doubt,” the murderous spree of Earle Leonard Nelson– aka “The Gorilla Man” and “The Dark Strangler”-- who has been described as one of the most prolific and feared serial killers of the early 20th century.

Two privileged young men cold-bloodedly kill someone close to them, just to prove they can get away with the perfect murder.
This is the premise behind Alfred Hitchcock’s 1948 suspenseful film “Rope.” 
Sadly, it was also the motivation behind the tragic 1924 murder of Bobby Franks by Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two college students, in a case so sensational it was referred to as “the crime of the century.” With Clarence Darrow defending the accused murderers, it was also deemed “the trial of the century.”
In this fascinating episode we delve into the true crime behind Hitchcock’s classic movie “Rope.” Not only do we share interesting behind-the-scenes stories about the film and Hitchcock’s groundbreaking use of “long-takes,”  we also walk through the infamous Leopold and Loeb case, analyzing how it inspired elements of the film.
