Good episode? Give it some love!
Ever wondered which real-life serial killer inspired the most iconic horror movie murderers of all time?
Ed Gein's handy work was so grotesque that it helped bring to life the likes of Buffalo Bill (Silence of the Lambs), Leather Face (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Norman Bates (Psycho).
If none of that was enough to peak your interest, at least tune in to hear about the belt he made from human nipples (that isn't even the worst of it).
