Deranged FINALLY Comes to U.S. Blu-ray


If you’ve ever seen 1974’s Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile, you know one thing… despite the changing of character names, it is the quintessential telling of the horrifying tale of one Ed Gein. Now, thanks to Kino Lorber, the flick is finally coming home to Blu-ray.

Available in its censored version on the B-side to MGM’s Motel Hell release, Deranged stars Roberts Blossom as Ezra Cobb (Gein), a perverted master craftsman when it comes to the manipulation of human flesh. We don’t know at press time if this version will be uncensored with all of Tom Savini’s effects in place, but wow, are we hoping!

Alan Ormsby and Jeff Gillen co-direct.

Look for it online and in stores on July 7th.

The Confessions of a Necrophile! Ezra’s good at making friends… into home furnishings! Based on the terrifying true story of Ed Gein that inspired Psycho, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and The Silence of the Lambs, this hauntingly scary film chronicles the grisly exploits of a rural necrophiliac and murderer. Brace yourself for a classic horror story that’s guaranteed to make you bite your nails… because if you don’t, Ezra will!

Screenwriter Alan Ormsby (Cat People) wrote and co-directed this spine-tingling horror film that will make your skin crawl with actor Jeff Gillen (A Christmas Story). Starring Roberts Blossom (Home Alone) as Ezra Cobb and Cosette Lee as Ma Cobb.
