John Borowski is an award winning independent filmmaker and author. His trilogy of documentaries on American criminals includes H.H. Holmes, Albert Fish and Carl Panzram. Initially focusing on late nineteenth and early twentieth century serial killers, he has recently expanded to international criminals.
I first met John several years ago at a convention in Chicago. I was intrigued by his projects because of the subject matter. I wanted to know how he portrayed these historical figures. I wanted to see what he did with the material.
After watching Serial Killer Culture, I was amazed and impressed. It is a look into the reasons people are fascinated by serial killers. It is entertaining, informative and very engrossing. It's a look at a dark subject without glorifying it.
I have since met John many times and he always has interesting projects to discuss and to promote. His most recent project is Serial Killer Culture TV. The videos will feature interviews with folks involved in the serial killer culture community. It promises to be just as intriguing as his other work. You can keep updated via the Serial Killer Culture TV Facebook page.
You can find John at many horror conventions during the year. You can also go to JohnBorowski.com to get all of the info and updates. Be sure to check out Mime Time, his 3 minute short film on the site. It is fantastic.
John is a great guy. He is very willing to chat with fans and is very accessible. He is a true artist who takes his work very seriously, while still being relatable to the average fan.
