Movie Info

Crazy for Christmas screenwriter Rick Bitzelberger makes his feature directorial debut with this brutal true crime drama based on the shocking case of Ed Kemper, the Santa Cruz serial killer who earned the nickname "The Co-Ed Killer" due to his penchant for preying on pretty young college students. An outwardly normal and unremarkable man, Kemper's decidedly low social profile helped him successfully deflect the suspicion of even Detective Tom Harris, a longtime friend of the secretive sociopath. Later, when Detective Harris is assigned to catch the killer, he is caught completely off guard by the revelation that his old friend Ed is to blame for the savage slayings. Now trapped in a vicious game of cat and mouse with the man who was once his friend, Detective Harris attempts to outsmart Kemper before the rampaging madman takes any more lives.

Audience Reviews for Kemper: The Co-ed Killer


Really liked the way it was written..the acting by the lead detective was absolutely horrible though which I think threw off the whole movie

This movie is based on a serial killer and his relationship with a cop. Now that is as good as this movie got! It had interesting parts, but no real pizzaz.

This movie is NOTHING like the real story of Ed Kemper, which is a strange story that would have made a good and disturbing movie in itself. The only thing they were inspired to use from real life is the man's name. Everything about this movie is labored and overdone.
