Ed Gein’s House of Horrors

$160.00

In 1957 the small town of Plainfield, Wisconsin made international news after police discovered numerous exhumed corpses inside the house of Ed Gein. Gein not only murdered at least two women (and also most likely his brother) but he also used body parts to fashion various items for his home. Inside Gein’s house of horrors police found a wastebasket made of human skin, chairs that had been rehupolstered with human skin, skulls on his bed posts, bowls made from human skulls, masks made from women’s faces, and maybe most famously of all, a belt made entirely of nipples.

Gein was quickly found to be mentally incompetent and spent the rest of his life in a mental hospital. His house which had become a beacon for morbid curiosity seekers was scheduled to be auctioned on March 30, 1958. However, on March 27th, 1958 the house was destroyed by fire.

Gein’s dastardly deeds became the inspiration for at least three classic horror flicks. Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Silence of The Lambs.
