Movie Info

"Ed Gein" is based closely on the life of the famed Wisconsin serial killer. The kind folks in Plainfield, Wis., think Ed Gein is just a shy, eccentric farmer. But Ed knows differently. With the ghost of his mother compelling him, Ed can no longer resist the allure of Plainfield's women, and his fierce desire to experience a real, live kill or two.

Audience Reviews for Ed Gein

  • Feb 21, 2007
    America's first Serial Killer Ed Gein was no doubt a very disturbed man. This film is by no means for the weak stomached as although some of it's content can be seen on many Horror style films, the fact that this was based on real people however adds to the eerieness to this dark film. Ed Gein hears instructions from beyond the grave from his God fearing Mother, of whom he was obsessed with. The film seems to tie up with a lot of the facts that I've read up on and shows Gein's fascination of body snatching, ressurection and cannibalism. This story was the inspiration to many films you see today, including Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Masacre and The Silence of the Lambs.
