Turn of the century serial killer revived in Bela Kiss

History is littered with mysterious characters that have become more myth than men. Was Rasputin really poisoned, shot, beaten and drowned before he would die, or do we love the myth of the "mad monk"? I'll admit that I had never heard of the "Hungarian Bluebeard," serial killer Bella Kiss, before this morning, but his legacy, like Rasputin's, seems to have gone from history to myth -- and now onto the silver screen in Lucien Förstner's upcoming thriller Bela Kiss.

Here's the beef:

Bela Kiss was one of the the most brutal serial killers, who killed 23 young women during the beginning of the first World War. The blood-drained bodies were found in metal barrels, conserved in alcohol. According to rumors, he was still seen decades later, in different parts of the world. He never was found and so the whereabouts of this man are unknown, even today.
