AMERICAN GOTHIC

Based on a true case, this is a charred horror story of a man, a dapper man in a white suit with a waxed mustache and a blue beard -- a doctor of sorts who bottled his own Electric Elixir, a womanizer of greater persuasion, and a multiple murderer who fashoned his own stockyard in the cellar of the castle he constructed at the time of the Chicago World's Fair. Crystal, a young reporter and a cheerfully stubborn investigator, looks into all the suddenly missing persons in the large house with sliding mirrors and disappearing staircases. An only too knowing fleshcrawler to be enjoyed, enjoyed.
