How Ed Gein Inspired Classic Horror Movies

You remember Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Silence of the Lambs: all classic horror movies from different decades. All terrifying in their own way. Another thing they all have in common is that they were all inspired by Ed Gein, a real killer from Wisconsin. The diverse plots of those films each centered on a different aspect of Gein’s crimes. He had an obsession with his mother, like Norman Bates in Psycho. He made clothing out of the skin he took from corpses, like Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. And he stored body parts in his home just like Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Read about the man who did all those things at Den of Geek.
