Synopsis:
Real-life Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein inspired many distinguished films, including 'Psycho', 'The Silence of the Lambs' and 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre', but none is quite as disturbing as 'Deranged'. Roberts Blossom gives an alarmingly convincing performance as rural eccentric Ezra Cobb, whose mother's death unhinges him to the point where he not only lovingly preserves her corpse in the living room but also goes out to find 'friends' to keep her company - not all of whom are dead when he finds them! Perversely, Ezra's more worried about what mother would say about his various activities than he is about the prospect of being found out.
Indeed, like Gein, he's cheerfully open about his activities when visiting friends, but no-one believes him.
