It's obvious that all serial murderers are sadistic killers. However, there are scales of sadism even within serial murdering. At the top of this sadistic heap? Those who kept women confined to a small space for months on end, torturing them with delight. These people - who kept others as human torture pets - used a variety of methods to keep them from escaping. Some chained their victims up like animals, while others preferred the locked basement approach. The important thing to note here is that the women eventually escaped, although the physical and mental atrocities of the torture that they endured will remain.
