Nightly Frights: The Murders of Ed Gein

Chances are you’ve heard of Edward Gein. If not, then you’re probably familiar with his other incarnations, like Norman Bates from Psycho, or Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. All of those fictional serial killers were based on the real-life human butcher Edward Gein—and, oh Sweet Celestia, when you learn about his life and his murders, you’ll understand why he was such an inspiration!

Documentaries and even actual movies have been made about this sick, twisted man and his even more sick and twisted murders, but MrCreepyPasta does an excellent job condensing it all to less than ten minutes. (Warning: you’ll want to listen to this on an empty stomach. You have been warned!)
