Was the most retarded movie I've ever seen, I'm sure its nothing like the true story, there wasn't a girl who got away and there wasn't all these scenes and crap but the fact that they made a movie out of a terrible tragedy is just pathetic and stupid.
Ed Gein. He was an unusual character, born on a farm and raised by a domineering mother. In the space of a few years his entire family died and he was left to raise the farm all by himself. In the next few years he became a grave robber, a necrophiliac, a cannibal, and also took up arts and crafts in body parts. He is seen as one of the most weird and bizarre serial killers of the twentieth century, and maybe only Jeffrey Dahmer got as close to what Ed did. His crimes also inspired the movies Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silence of the Lambs.
The funny-looking bowl was a top of a human skull. The lampshades and wastebasket were made from human skin.
A ghoulish inventory began to take shape: an armchair made of human skin, female genitalia kept preserved in a shoebox, a belt made of nipples, a human head, four noses and a heart.
The more the looked through the house, the more ghastly trophies they found. Finally a suit made entirely of human skin. Their heads spun as they tried to tally the number of woman that may have died at Eddie's hands.
The new one was not as good as the original. I would suggest renting the original, because it was much better. And yes, it was based on that Ed guy. But, all basis aside, the new version was just really, really retarded. But I did jump and gag a few times.
