It's time for season two of Travel Channel's Making Monsters featuring Distortions Unlimited, the Colorado-based “haunt industry” animatronic and prop-making company run by Ed and Marsha Edmunds.
Ed Edmunds created a revolutionary, rock style haunted house called Brutal Planet, lauded by Alice Cooper, creating such a buzz that Six Flags had Distortions duplicate it for 16 theme park locations across the country. He also invented an Electric Chair animatronic which has become a centerpiece for haunted houses from coast to coast.
Edmund’s fascination with sci-fi flicks and television began as a teenager while living in rural Illinois. He studied Art Education at the University of Northern Colorado. Edmunds used his artistic abilities to make and sell high-quality masks, which eventually led to the creation of his company, Distortions Unlimited.
Marsha Taub-Edmunds began working for Ed Edmunds in 1981 - she became intrigued by the creations and took it upon herself to learn the business inside and out. Marsha and Ed connected through their shared artistic passion and wed in 1992; they have been running Distortions Unlimited as a team ever since.
This season on Making Monsters, we'll see a red-eyed, smoke-breathing tiki for a haunt on the Hawaiian island of Oahu; a creepy, spitting, twisting centipede for Atlanta’s Netherworld; an iconic stage mask for Megadeth, and much more!
It's good to talk.
