It's definitely a possibility.

Amazing, how did you come up with this? I really admire your efforts! Yes, it's hood stuff. But people have been putting on hoods with eye holes since at least the middle ages, probably back to Roman times or whenever sewing (beyond bedsheets) was invented, still it's a great find.

I was watching the new show Damnation on USA which is where I saw the box hood with the skull symbol in the front off center to their left sides. Then I just googled the group and also found out about the 37 movie
