    Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield
    Friday the 13th mainstay Kane Hodder stars as the true-life serial killer whose unspeakable atrocities inspired such classic horror films as Psycho and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in director Michael Feifer's disturbing frightener. Rural Wisconsin was a quiet place until the man they called "The Butcher of Plainfield" began his rapid descent into madness. In the months that followed mysterious murders and a series of shocking grave robberies would make headlines all across the country. With this film, fans can finally find out just what it was that transformed a timid, child-like farmer into one of the most abhorrent figures on the annals of American crime. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Cheesy slasher 'B' movie!


      My wife and I watched this and didn't like it. First of all, we have the film Ed Gein which is more accurate to the real story. It could pass for a documentary. Second, they butchered the real story of Ed Gein, (no pun intended). Kane Hodder, which was good in the Friday the 13th films when he played Jason, plays Ed Gein, but is twice the size of the real Ed Gein. Also, he kills like a dozen or so people in the film. The real Ed Gein only killed 2-4 people. This was just another slasher film LOOSELY based on Ed Gein. (And a 'B' version at that.) If you want to see the real story of Ed Gein that inspired the killers in such films as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, and Silence of the Lambs, then I recommend watching Ed Gein (with Steve Railsback). Not this one!

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
