Synopsis

Ancient Discoveries: Ancient Torture Tech
When it comes to torturing our fellow man, the evil of humans seems to know no boundaries. From the dreaded rack to burning at the stake, our malevolent ingenuity is as tragic as it is morbidly fascinating. In this documentary, filmmakers explore the science behind some of the most dreaded torture techniques ever devised. It was once thought that the rack worked by snapped its victims' joints, though we've since come to learn that it was, in fact, their bones that were breaking instead. Meanwhile, Vlad Tepes earned the nickname Vlad the Impaler due to his penchant for skewing his enemies on three-inch-wide stakes and keeping them alive for days. Computer simulations and virtual reality recreations reveal the sinister ways these devices worked as doctors, historians, and other experts weigh in with their own theories about the extraordinary levels of pain that the victims experienced in the process of being tortured. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
