About Distortions Unlimited: Discover Distortions Unlimited hidden in an industrial warehouse in Greeley, Colorado. Distortions Unlimited’s owners, Ed and Marsha Edmunds, and their talented crew make monsters. Their quality props, masks and creations have been a mainstay of the dark amusement industry since 1978. Long creative hours are spent in gray-walled offices with brain-eating hunchbacks, wall-scaling zombies and docile 3-foot tall aliens.
