Countess Elizabeth Báthory, is considered by many to be the world’s worst female serial killer, she was the true inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. After all, legend has it that she bathed in the blood of at least 650 servant girls she had tortured and killed. She was said to be so evil that villagers kept their daughters in hiding for fear that Elizabeth would take them. Her gruesome activities even earned her such names as “the Infamous Lady” and “the Blood Countess.”
Legend has it that one day an attendant girl was brushing Elizabeth’s hair when she accidentally pulled too hard and it tugged on a snag in her hair. The countess erupted in anger, jumping up and striking the girl with the back of her hand. The strike was so hard that it made the girl bleed and some of that blood was left on Elizabeth’s hand. Later that night, Elizabeth noticed that the skin on her hand where the blood had been looked more youthful than she had seen it in many years. This gave her the idea that if such a small amount of blood could make her hand look so young, then more could restore youthfulness to her whole body. It’s said that this is when the madness began and Elizabeth started to bathe in the blood of virgin girls.

Leonarda Cianciulli murdered several women in Italy in 1939-1940 — and turned their bodies into soap and teacakes.

John Wayne Gacy is known as "The Killer Clown" for his hobby of painting clowns and performing at birthday parties as Pogo the Clown.

1918, Fritz Haarmann "The Vampire of Hanover" embarked on a series of 27 savage murders in Germany. He cannibalized his victims, who were mostly young boys, by biting into their throats. And if the rumors are to be believed, he may even have sold some of their flesh on the black market as mincemeat. It took until 1924 before Haarmann was finally brought to justice and executed by guillotine.
Denis Rader taunted the police and the media for decades. He sent them letters, calling himself "The BTK Killer," an acronym for his modus operandi: "bind, torture, kill." Using that method, Rader killed 10 people in his home state of Kansas between 1974 and 1991, all the while blending into society as a church-going family man, before he was finally finally caught in 2005.
Alexander Pichushkin was dubbed "The Chessboard Killer" for his love of the game, but his real hobby was something far more sinister.

His goal, he confessed, was to get 64 kills: one for each space on the chessboard

Rodney Alcala: He was nicknamed the “Dating Game Killer” because he was a contestant on said game show while in the midst of his famous killing spree.

Henry Lee Lucas: While being interrogated for his murders, Lucas was asked by the police why he didn’t barbecue and eat his victims like his partner, Ottis Toole, had. To this he responded, “because I don’t like barbecue sauce.”
Lucas was arrested in Texas and on the basis of his alleged confessions to Texas Rangers, hundreds of unsolved murders were attributed to him and officially classified as cleared up. Lucas was convicted of murdering 11 people and condemned to death for a single case with an unidentified victim. A newspaper exposed the improbable logistics of the confessions made by Lucas, when they were taken as a whole, and a study by the Attorney General of Texas concluded he had falsely confessed. Lucas's death sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1998. Assertions by law enforcement that in certain cases Lucas had demonstrated knowledge of unsolved crimes that only a perpetrator could have possessed added to the enigma, as did his association with Ottis Toole.
