I got this #radasfuck early #XMaspresent from my dear friend @zombieresin. I have really great friends and they know me so well!
If you're unfamiliar with #edgein , he was born in 1906. He, along with his brother, were raised very poorly by their domineering, woman hating mother and alcoholic father in wisconsin. Ed's father died in 1940, leaving he, his mother and brother. His brother "died mysteriously" in a brush fire (ed probably killed him) in '44, leaving Ed and mother alone for a year until she died in '45. Ed couldn't handle his mother's death, so he brought her corpse back to the family farmhouse.
For the next decade Ed would continue to rob graves to make clothing (a nipple belt, a woman skin suit), kitchenware (bowls made from human skull caps), furniture (chairs with actual arms for arms) and just stock his house with random body parts.
In 1954 he killed a tavern worker and was never suspected of a thing until 1957 when he killed a local Planfield hardware store worker. Police found her headless, disemboweled body hanging upside down like a deer in a shed behind his house. He's suspected of other murders (2 girls who disappeared in '47 and '53, 2 men who hired Gein to be their deer hunting guide) but was declared incompetent and never stood trial.
He died peacefully in a mental hospital in July of 1984 at age 78 and was buried in an unmarked grave alongside his mother. In the wake of his deeds and death came the #RobertBloch book #Psycho , then #Hitchcocks masterpiece film. #TobeHooper also used Gein's story for #TheTexasChainsawMassacre . The kindly old man from Home Alone who saved kevin? He played a version of Ed in #Deranged . #WilliamGirdler was tragically killed in his youth, but not before he could make #ThreeonaMeathook , also about Ed. #BuffaloBill from #SilenceoftheLambs ? Sort of based on Ed. Recently cult film darling character actor Michael Wincott played Ed in Hitchcock, a film about the making of Hitch's Psycho.

My most wanted movie to be released on bluray. "Three on a Meathook" (1972). Based on the crimes committed by Ed Gein. Only released on VHS and then bootlegged on DVD with VHS quality. I hope some label will put out an official release of this mega obscure film. In the same vein as "Deranged" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". #threeonameathook#williamgirdler#vhshorror#horrorcollection
I received all this madness and more from @littleboxofhorrorsofficial . That mask is one of favorite pieces I own! I have always wanted a Blood Feast barf bag. The Buffalo Bill figure by @lb3d_design is fantastic, even plays Goodbye Horses. Just watched Tourist Trap again on the Last Drive In with @joebobbriggsofficial and this pin is a welcomed addition. Three On A Meathook vhs cover key hanger is a clever idea and now I have something other than nails. The shirt rocks, love that movie, found that movie at a convention and couldn't believe I missed out for so long. Glad the Torso DVD made it in there. I love that movie and good to have a backup copy. The Dahmer card by @chuckhodi is super rad, now to hunt some more of those down. I haven't seen The First Power in a minute, but dig this magnet by @lb3d_design ! These boxes are just the best! They go on sale at 5am and 5pm central time on the 15th of each month. Treat yourself, they do sell out quickly. The owner is a really great person and a talented artist. There are always a ton of variations of these boxes, plus a bonus item or two.
