Psycho: The Lost Tapes of Ed Gein gives us another look at the serial killer who inspired a lot of horror works. Is this a series to binge-watch?

There are a lot of serial killers out there who have become famous for their horrific acts. Even as we move into a world that focuses more on the victims rather than the killers, there is this need to understand what is going on inside the minds of killers.

Ed Gein is one of those twisted minds that journalists, scholars, and more have tried to get into. Everyone wants to figure out why he did the acts that he did, and part of the way to understand is to use his actions as inspiration for horror. We’ve seen his twisted relationship used in Psycho, and we’ve watched his killings being used in works like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He was even the inspiration behind the classic The Silence of the Lambs.

Now it’s time to delve further into his mind. The four-part docuseries brings up multiple lost tapes, transporting ub back to 1950s Middle America and that horrifying time of going from grave-robber to serial killer.
