s1e1 A Real Psycho
September 26, 2015
The peaceful small town of Plainfield, Wisconsin is shattered when a female bartender goes missing. But it’s not until a few years later when another woman of the same age disappears that local sheriffs start putting together the pieces of a very strange puzzle. Two bloody crime scenes…dozens of empty graves…a sick obsession with mother…and a suit of human skin. You might think this is the plot from a horror film, but it’s all terrifyingly true. These are the actual events that inspired the movies Psycho, Silence of the Lambs, and many more stories of terror. This is the Behind the Screams account of serial killer Ed Gein.
