It's a heartbreaking event , the stuff the poor girl went through and all because one woman registries of fun , this was a true story and that's the scariest thing of all so God bless the poor girl who actually went through it.

***This is the Kindle screenplay (2007), written by Jack Ketchum and based on his novel (1989), which in turn is based on the Sylvia Likens story***

On October 26, 1965, Sylvia Marie Likens left this world.

She died of a brain hemorrhage and shock, the result of being subjected to multiple beatings, torture, rape, and malnutrition. She was just a teenager, her whole life ahead of her.

In 1965, Sylvia and her younger sister, Jenny, were entrusted to Gertrude Baniszewski, who resided in a suburban area of Indiana. Their mother had been arrested for shoplfting and their father was a hopeless alcoholic. The couple were divorced and Lester subsequently paid Baniszewski $20 per-week to sort his daughters out.

Baniszewski had suffered several failed marriages, had seven children, little money, was underweight, and physically and mentally ill. She suffered from stress and depression. After payment from Lester stopped coming, Baniszewski began beating the Likens girls, accusing them of stealing and of being pregnant, both of which were untrue. Following these incidents came the torture, sexual abuse, starving, and psychological abuse. Baniszewski then invited the neighbourhood kids to join in. Likens suffered severe damage to her kidneys and other organs, due to the beatings and mollestations and a consistent lack of food and water.

Just before Sylvia died, Baniszewski carved 'I'm a prostitute and proud of it!' into her stomach.

Jenny lived. She celebrated Baniszewski's death from lung cancer in 1990.

Sylvia's favourite band was 'The Beatles'.

Jack's novel, based on the Likens story, is set in the 1950's and is narrated by the character, David.

Great film and book, However I did not realize that this was the script version. So sad to know that this actually happened. I can not believe someone could do this to another human being.

My fault for not spotting this was a screenplay not a story! Still worth a read but will need to purchase the actual book!

HASH(0x940543d8) out of 5 stars Sick to the extreme! 18 Dec. 2014
By Richard Boynton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sick, sick and sicker. Ketchum should be ashamed of himself for putting out this trash. Stopped reading it about 1/3 rd through it and deleted it off my kindle. Ketchum must be very mentally sick and warped to even consider such a story. Will never read his trash again!
