No need to just this insight into a fascinating psychotic Killer Ed Gein. I could talk forever about the perplexed mind and speculated motives from books as well. But this Movie is one of the best in style with BTK killer (SERIAL KILLERS IN FANCY MOVIE STYLE shooting we see here). Not same style, BTK in Kansas and more hyped modern movie style there, also worth checking out.

Ed Gein derives from a Northern Farmer Desolated realm of Winconsin. much more obscure, alittle town with around 632 citiziens only. Plainfield Cemetary surely must be forever haunted.
Well I will not reveal too much, but its a "Must" too see!
seen it many times, perhaps ten?

However find it stupid to READ the movie front DVD cover, Ed Gein described as First serial killer in America. Ohh they always been there, BTW. you forgot H. H. Holmes from Chicago, in the turn of the 1900 century, who killed in hundreds and Albert Fish operated before Ed Gein, The vampire of Brooklyn, a man with abnormal psychopathic S/M Sadistic mind, a Cannibal devouring children. Jane T. or the unknown infamous house-invasion Axe Butcher, crawling at night into houses from the streets of New Orleans, more than 100 years ago, plus countless clandestine Killers, often unknown to many people and medias and such!

Ed Gein was more of a collector and tried to ressurrect the dead. But killed only few compared to others?. And the psychosis and indoctrinating of his Mother played a huge role in this yearning within him. Very perplexed that there are not more valid information about this real living man, once upon a time. there are gateways to annihilation within this abyss.

Ed Gein was notorious in the 1950's for his crimes against people. Theseincluded digging up dead people, making them into attractive interiouritems and shrinking their heads, as well as then going on to kill peopleand eat them/make fetching suites out of their skins. Inspiring suchcharacters as Norman Bates, Buffalo Bill and The Leatherface clan, thisstory differs in that it's REAL. The story sticks to the facts, onlydramatizing them where nessessary. Perhaps the american censoring board,coupled with a compact special effects budget meant we don't get to seethe crimes in their full horrific glory, but still a good film, underratedin it's popularity. One for serial killer fans.

Well, I know this isn't the most fun film to watch, afterall it tells the real life story of Ed Gein, the man who inspired the films "Psycho" and "Silence of the Lambs".
But it is a brutally honest look at the life of this famous serial killer (the first person to be given that label).
I think this film is very well put together, giving a balanced look at the man, both from his point of view and the point of view of other people. This man was clearly insane, and we see that if this had been noticed earlier, lives would've been spared.
I have to say, at one point I did feel sorry for Ed Gein. Although I do not, in any way shape of form, condone what he did, this man was lonely, troubled and mentally ill. He had a bad childhood, full of death and pain, he idolised his mother (who was always nasty to him) and her death was the final straw. He felt like his world had collapsed around him. It got to the point where he even tried Vodoo to bring his mother back to life. Eventually he did, but it was all in his head.
A brutal look at a very troubled mind.

This film is really well done. It doesn't need to be gory or even scary, it simply tells Ed Gein's story as it really happened. Terrific acting and every scene is beautifully shot. Ed Gein had a level of weird that is still unsurpassed and the scene where he dances in his skin suit banging his little drum is really freaky. It's a creepy, intelligent film which I thoroughly enjoyed.

By Andy Millward VINE VOICE on 18 July 2008
Format: DVD
Yes, it's not the most dramatic of serial killer biopics, nor the most intelligent (that honour would probably go to John McNaughton's excellent Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer), but the psychology is interesting: a violent pig farmer for a father, bible-spouting hell-raising "harpie" of a mother (use of that the word got Gein's brother killed for his pains) and educationally subnormal son, haunted by a fearful childhood, living alone in a remote house, reading about anatomy, death and head shrinkers while grave robbing to resurrect the recently dead. Definite recipe for disaster, that. Especially when he used bones of the dead to make furniture, amongst many other souvenirs!

Contrary to other reviews here, Gein's story was primarily the model for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho. This has long since passed into American folklore, but it does make you wonder how many more serial killers lived out in the hills in the bible belt.

This is not a definitive film, though its virtues are worthy of three stars: highly evocative sets, locations and cinematography, powerful and understated performances, notably from Steve Railsback and Carrie Snodgress, and an attempt by the scriptwriters to get under the skin (literally) of its subject. Its failings relate to the weak suspense and dramatic climax. But it certainly ain't a 1-star film.
