Ed Gein Reviews

  • Jul 12, 2017

    By no means is it a gory horror film with the most recognizable icon. The script also adapts certain parts of the history correctly, while other times is misses the mark completely. No matter what though, the main leads fill the shoes professionally, the story is tempting to watch, the music fits the atmosphere as well as the visual style. For my full review of Ed Gein (2000), check it out on this IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230169/reviews-117

    Before Dahmer, Gacy and Bundy, there was Ed Gein. This was a good film in depicted Gein's depravity and his mama issues. His crimes would later inspire another mama's boy: Norman Bates.

    Really good but not overall that exciting or suspenseful. Just a lot of sickness and also makes me want to clean my house.

    Steve Railsback does a good job as the famous serial killer Ed Gein, and he is the only positive aspect of the movie, because the poor execution and the lack of intensity, absolutely kills Ed Gein, no pun intended.

    Not terrible, but not really a horror movie. More like a really dark drama. The lead actor definitely gives an excellent performance, but I think they could have gone creepier...scarier.

    This actor does a convincing job of playing Ed Gein.

    Ive read the true crime book "Deviant" by Harold Schechter, and if that book is accurate then the movie "Ed Gein" is pretty accurate. As far as I know the parts where the specter of Ed's dead mother instructs him and coaxes him are fiction though. The acting for the main characters is good. If you are looking for Texas Chainsaw Massacre then watch that, but if you want a good movie about the true story of the "original psycho" then watch this movie. And yes there is some gruesome stuff show.

    The most accurate portrayl of Gein on film. Offers perspective on the man who inspired Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre a bunch of less notable films. More Bio-pic than horror film.

    Ed Gein, the star of "Texas Chainsaw Massacare," gets another horrible movie. This one being more based on facts, still sucks. Just don't watch this film.
