Who’s Ed Gein? We know Ed from horror-film treatments. “Psycho,” “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” and “Silence of the Lambs” were all “inspired” by Ed’s unholy life.
Gein’s was a strange destiny. His mission, apparently, was to haunt our collective dreams in these end times, with a blistering example of just how low a human can go. He was a nocturnal exhumer of coffins, a manufacturer of metatarsal trinkets, and a wearer of scalp-wigs.
