Bazaar Bizarre: The Strange Case of Bob Berdella

In 1988, Chris Bryson was found running down a Kansas City street naked, beaten, and bloody wearing nothing but a dog collar and a leash. He told police about Bob Berdella, a local business man and how Berdella had captured him, held him hostage, raped him, tortured him, and photographed him over several days.

Police later arrested Berdella and searched his mid-town Kansas City home where they found several hundred polaroid photographs, a detailed torture log, envelopes of human teeth and a human skull.

It was soon discovered that Berdella had murdered six young men in his home after drugging them and performing his sick acts of sexual torture. He met a couple of the victims at his business, a small shop called “Bob’s Bizaare Bazaar” where he sold artifacts from around the world related to the darker side of human nature for people with jaded tastes.Some lived the horrors for only a few days, one for six weeks.

After death, Berdella would cut up the bodies with an electric chain saw and a bone knife, place the body parts in empty dog food bags, put them into large trash bags setting them out for trash collection on Monday. It is believed that Berdella used specific organs of the victims as meat in several food dishes he would serve at his shop, although he denied this until the apprehension of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer one year later.

  1. here is a link: Bazaar Bizarre: The Strange Case of Bob Berdella

  2. well I watched the whole thing; and I will never get those minutes back. But considering the age of the documentary I think it was great. It should be fixed up with new technology though. The music (the band) was pretty good; “Bob the Boogeyman” was quite entertaining way to end the show LMAO

  3. Interesting subject matter, absolutely horribly portrayed by the asshole who made it

  4. ANOTHER FILM THAT DOES NOT COME UP…THAT’S TWO

  5. Oh my word. That was a waste of my time, Im one of these people that tends to have to see something through till the end, but with this I truly wish I hadnt at all. The subject matter was very interesting but the (excuse my language) utter bulls**t production was awful! ARGH!!!

  6. A Masturbatory Masterpiece!!! 5 Stars. 3 Molars and a Testicle. .I cried. I laughed. I crapped myself..then proceeded to force myself to eat it, wait for it to be expelled yet again from my anus and began the whole process over again…
    A delightfully whimsical look at the private life of an average Tea Partying Evangelical Sex Fiend.

  7. All these negative comments made me very curious of course, but some damn ad-on prevented me from playing the doc. Hmmph.

  8. Guess I’ll find out why comments are posted numerous times. I’m gonna take all your words for it, and skip it. Too bad, would make interesting doc if done properly.

  9. wtf is the band that plays to do with it the killings?

  10. fake app download

  11. I almost watched this because it sounded so interesting. Then I saw the rating and the comments. I then decided against it. How disappointing.

  16. Wow. Everyone’s actually right. I was hoping to just skip through all the bad parts and just watch the actual documentary, but I can’t do it. It’s impossible. This video is utter crap.

  17. That sucks cause I was interested in the subject :/

  18. What was with the band playing that song for an interminable amount of time? Is this a finished film?

  19. Rock and roll!

  22. Horrible, simply horrible. Was this made for pot-heads?

  24. Unwatchable

  25. The recreations were completely unnecessary and tasteless. Some of the interviews were alright, but for the most part I was very distracted by the amateurish production qualities. It was certainly a bold and uninhibited effort though.

  28. Wow. What a rambling, disjointed piece of unwatchable crap this is. Too bad – the subject seemed quite intriguing.
