BORN TO KILL IN THE USSR

True stories of Soviet serial killers by Robert Kalman

An ex-actor poses as a gas company worker to enter homes without suspicion. When the doors are closed, he strikes with a camping ax. A love-scorned man hunts and eats women when a “magical force” tells him that drinking blood from a body cleanses the soul. Fifty-two people lie gunned down by the Ukrainian Terminator in a horrific six month tour de force that wipes out entire families. The largest park in Moscow witnesses over sixty people slaughtered in a twisted game of chess.

Born to Kill in the USSR is an unflinching portrait of the serial killer through the Soviet and Post-Soviet era. Forty-five men and women’s unconscionable devolutions are documented against the political complexities and social reality of the largest country in the world.
