Ed Gein Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Inspired by Tyler Durden's Ted Bundy thread which was inspired by me.

listen to Slayer - Dead Skin Mask while looking through this thread.

Fantastic.

 

Ed Gein served as a model for the killers in the following films:

Pyscho

Silence of the lams (buffalo bill)

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

 

"Born at the turn of the century into the small farming community of Plainfield, Wisconsin, Gein lived a repressive and solitary life on his family homestead with a weak, ineffectual brother and domineering mother who taught him from an early age that sex was a sinful thing. Eddie ran the family's 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield until his brother Henry died in 1944 and his mother in 1945. When she died her son was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor, still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life. The rest of the house, however, soon degenerated into a madman's shambles. Thanks to federal subsidies, Gein no longer needed to farm his land, and he abandoned it to do odd jobs here and there for the Plainfield residents, to earn him a little extra cash. But he remained alone in the enormous farmhouse, haunted by the ghost of his overbearing mother, whose bedroom he kept locked and undisturbed, exactly as it had been when she was alive. He also sealed off the drawing room and five more upstairs rooms, living only in one downstairs room and the kitchen.

 

"Weird old Eddie", as the local community know him, had begun to develop a deeply unhealthy interest in the intimate anatomy of the female body - and interest that was fed by medical encyclopedias, books on anatomy, pulp horror novels and pornographic magazines. He became particularly interested in the atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Second World War and the medical experiments performed on Jews in the concentration camps. Soon he graduated on to the real thing by digging up decaying female corpses by night in far-flung Wisconsin cemeteries. These he would dissect and keep some parts heads, sex organs, livers, hearts and intestines. Then he would flay the skin from the body, draping it over a tailor's dummy or even wearing it himself to dance and cavort around the homestead - a practice that apparently gave him intense gratification. On other occasions, Gein took only the body parts that particularly interested him. He was especially fascinated by the excised female genitalia, which he would fondle and play with, sometimes stuffing them into a pair of women's panties, which he would then wear around the house. Not surprisingly, he quickly became a recluse in the community, discouraging any visitors from coming near his by now neglected and decaying farm."

he was also mentioned in AMERICAN PSYCHO and Mudvayne wrote a song about him

on their first album. He's definitely a bad mutherfucker.I was reading about serial killers all last summer

because i was plotting the demise of the state of michigan cause they suspended my liscence

but anyway he was using the skulls of woman as soup bowls making chairs and shit out of their bones

having necrophiliac sex and all sorts of weird shit. anyway if i looked up to serial killers with very demented

minds he would be it.

since we're on the movies/serial killer connection, i'd say to check out Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer which is based on henry lee lucas..

 

::Subjected to untold horrors by his insanely abusive mother, Lucas began indulging in sadistic depravity while still a child. By thirteen, he was engaging in sex with his older half-brother, who also introduced Henry to the joys of bestiality and animal torture. One of their favorite activities was slitting the throats of small animals, then sexually violating the corpses.

 

Early in his childhood, Lucas was compelled to dress as a girl by his mother. She would curl her little boy’s stringy blond hair into ringlets and sent him off to school in girl’s clothes.::

I think he was only convicted for killing like two people or something like that but they had enough evidence(body parts) at his house that he could have killed like 40+ but they couldn't match the body parts to anyone so they couldn't convict him for it or something ridiculous like that.

I'll make a shoehorn outta your shin

I'll make a lampshade of durable skin

And oh, don't you know that I'm

always feelin' able

When I'm sittin' home and I'm carvin'

out your naval

I'm just sittin' here carvin' out

your navel

When will I realize that this skin

I'm in

Hey, it isn't mine

And when will the kill be too much

meat for me to hide on

Hey, I could really use a couple

of hands

To complete one hell of a plant stand

Oh, don't you know that I'm caught

here in the middle

Making rib cages into coffee tables

I'm just makin' em into coffee tables
