Episode 22 – Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile

Episode XXII – Pretty Sally Mae died a very unnatural death! … But the worst hasn’t happened to her yet! – June 27th, 2013

Most people are familiar with Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and how it was inspired by true events. But what many don’t know is, that during that same year in 1974 another picture was released called Deranged which chronicled the life of Ed Gein (through the alternate name Ezra Cobb). Gein was a very real ghoul who dug up over 500 graves and killed at least 2 people. He was the inspiration for Norman Bates, Leatherface and Buffalo Bill. His story is so bizarre and nightmarish that it’s almost impossible to comprehend. Deranged is a very authentic look at that insanity. It was shot in Canada, starring Roberts Blossom. Directed by Alan Ormsby with effects by a very young Tom Savini. The only thing scarier than fiction is the truth. Come with us as we delve into one of the most bent, twisted minds in recent history. We’ll review the film with audio clips and share outrageous stories about how we found the film back in the 90s and how Deranged saved the day when Cash Wampum inadvertently pissed off his idol. Don’t miss this show! Join the Horror 101 team as they present for you Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile.
