Films: Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile (1974)
Location: Haunted home/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: These Ed Gein act-alikes are getting old. Really, how many times can you base your horror character off the same serial killer? It's ridiculous. Even then, they're all fairly frightening for a reason.
History: Ezra Cobb was secluded, lived with his mom, and was taught explicitly to hate women. When she died, Ezra snapped and refused to believe she was dead. It grew beyond that quickly, as Ezra began finding corpses and redecorated his home with them so that it would feel a bit more lively. Of course, who said that corpses were the only sources of bodies...?
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Eventually, the small town Ezra lives in can't take the slaughter anymore, and as they mobilize to destroy the enemy, all Ezra can do is sit sadly and sing a sorrowful little tune. Several nights later, the Cobb household is burned to the ground at nightfall, most likely taking Ezra with it.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-As far as Ed Gein clones go, this one is fairly standard. It just so happens he's a lot more visceral and artistic with his corpses. He's also quite pathetic in personality, in typical Ed Gein fasion.
Trivia: -Most of the corpses were accomplished via fake skull kits glued to chicken wire bodies.
-Actors who auditioned for Ezra's role included Harvey Keitel and, of all people, Christopher Walken.
