It's come to my mind that society seems to have a weird fascination with Serial Killers. We write books , make movies - hell, we even put wax figures of them in museums. All of these killers have different motivations for committing these crimes, and all ended up killing due to tragic events that happened in their lives, an abusive life style, or mentally illness.

You won't believe what these people did to their victims. Acts that you would see in a horror film are not so un-real. Hell, the origins of these killers scared the hell out of me. Here are 5 of the most horrifying serial killers that would have you crapping your pants if you ever met them.

1. Edmund Kemper

Known as the 'Butcher of Rostov,' Andrei first killed a 9-year-old after he attempted to rape her, but failed to achieve an erection. When the girl struggled, he choked her and stabbed her three times in the abdomen, ejaculating in the process of stabbing the child. In an interview after his arrest, Chikatilo later recalled that after stabbing Yelena, the girl had "said something very hoarsely," whereupon he strangled her into unconsciousness before throwing her body into a nearby river. Chikatilo killed 56 human beings. He was taken from his death row cell to a sound proof room in Novocherkassk prison and executed with a single gunshot. Andrei was about 30 to 45 years old when he first killed.
