“When Jim Foss, the owner of Party Palace, saw the Andromeda mask, he asked Ed if he could make more to sell. Although Ed didn’t realize it at the time, this was the beginning of his career as a professional monster-maker and also the beginning of Distortions Unlimited.”
We are excited to present for preview an early draft of the chapter, “Humble Beginnings,” of Remember the Future: The Distortions Unlimited Story by Lee Lambert, author of The Illustrated History of Don Post Studios, who was given unprecedented access to the archives of Distortions Unlimited and the lives of co-owners Ed & Marsha Edmunds.
The book, to be released in September 2017, takes readers behind the scenes at Distortions Unlimited, the haunted attraction industry’s leading supplier of props and animatronics, and explores the company’s humble beginnings as a Halloween mask company in the late 1970s through to the present. Distortions and its owners, Ed & Marsha Edmunds, were the subject of the Travel Channel’s Making Monsters TV show.
