About The Show
'The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.' (Proverbs 21:16)
Mother has died leaving her son Ed alone, and confused in a cold house in a country gripped by paranoia in a supposed age of innocence Consumed by grief & desperate for companionship, he resurrects her spirit...but Ed is about to learn a horrifying & blood soaked lesson that the dead should never ever be disturbed.
Based on the real life crimes of Ed Gein (who inspired Norman Bates from Psycho, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs) comes a show that contains a grave robbery, evil recycling, offensive skeletons, a twisted home economics show and a mother that will do anything to protect her child.

Edward Theodore Gein
Ed Gein was born in 1906 into a difficult household with a drunk layabout Father and a dominating Mother who was a religious fanatic. His Mother would bring him up in a isolated Farmhouse, where she would condemn him for making friends; especially female friends. He was shy and quiet in his School years, although he displayed odd behaviour when he would suddenly burst out laughing, as if he was listening to his own jokes. His Father died 1940, with his Brother dying shortly after in 1944 and his Mother died 1945; leaving him alone. Years go by and the house as well as Ed's mind decays. With odd sightings, graves being dug up, disappearances happening nobody even suspected little Eddie Gein.
In 1957 the local hardware shop owner went missing, later that day the Police opened the door to Ed's House and found a house of horrors; a House with horrors that would go on to inspire such movie villains such as: Norman Bates from Psycho, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre & Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.
Ed Gein would then spend the rest of his life in psychotic hospitals and would die in 1977
