Instead of an Alien-invasion, I would like my scene to portray an eery isolation feel, similar to that of The Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Before all the violence kicks off) This is where I've been looking through the images of Ed Gein, which I've also posted below.
Ed Gein was a 'serial killer' who operated in the 1950's living in Wisconsin. He was only convicted of killing one person, but hewas also a grave-robber who stole at least 10 newly-buried bodies from local graveyards to use in his own way (Which turned out to be making necklaces out of the lips, soup-bowls out of the skulls and keeping the genitals in a box, he also kept organs in the refrigerator). A report stated:
A shirt of human skin, complete with breasts, had been fashioned from the tanned torso of a middle-aged woman. Gein would later confess that he often put the shirt on at night and pretended to be his mother.
He committed all of this after the death of his mother, and admitted after his arrest, that he was making a human-suit out of the skin of the victims to become a woman. Below are some photos of the house that Ed Gein operated in, his story influenced a lot of horror films, and he was a genre-creating icon, especially Psycho, which was based on Gein, with the motherly-loved killer.
