Plot – Spoilers:
A farmer Ezra, who’s excessively devoted to his bed-ridden mother tries his best to keep her alive long beyond her will. Mother has inspired in him a hatred and suspicion for women as disease-carrying, thieving sluts. This suits Ezra fine as he looks well older than he is and has developed peculiar mannerisms and expressions that are probably charming only to his mother who anyway sees everything blurred.

Finally one day the old lady dies and Ez spends a year missing her before he decides it’s time to bring her back home from the grave. By this time it’s clear he’s lost his mind. And his sense of smell. From here, he just gets progressively worse.

Very loosely based on the exploits of serial killer Ed Gein, the version here is the European one that includes a brain scooping moment.
