Verbatim Box Synopsis
Like "DERANGED" and "THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE" this exciting horror movie is based quite extensively on the gruesome deeds of real-life killer Ed Gein. The villain, Charles Kissinger, meets a fate similar to Tony Perkins in "PSYCHO" while his innocent son is blamed for the murders of several young girls.
