An infamous Wisconsin serial killer has a new documentary released about him.

I think it is pretty safe to safe that Horror is a top genre for entertainment. People love to be scared. Hundreds of movies, books, television shows, documentaries, and other formats are released every year. It is big business.

I am not sure which disturbs me more. When they are made from scratch (how do writers come up with that insane stuff?) or based on a true story (what causes that psychotic behavior happen?). Either way is pretty darn frightening.

This new documentary on Discovery + covers a story that is one of the most gruesome of all time. it is part of the "Shock Docs" series called "Ed Gein: The Real Psycho."

According to,

"The iconic psychopaths featured in “Silence of the Lambs,” “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Psycho” were not just fictitious villains, they were inspired by a real-life personification of evil – Ed Gein, a convicted murderer and a grave robber who had a malicious obsession with human flesh. The new Shock Docs special, ED GEIN: THE REAL PSYCHO, chronicles the horrific crimes of the heinous killer. Documentary film producer and paranormal investigator Steve Shippy and world-renowned psychic medium Cindy Kaza travel to Gein’s hometown in Plainfield, Wisconsin, to conduct investigations of the most haunted locations connected to Gein."

I had the opportunity to chat with the producer, Steve Shippy, about this project. If you missed it, you can check it out right now.

The whole story is pretty messed up. Plus, it happened in a small town in Wisconsin. I definitely want to check out the documentary,

Check out the trailer.
