Rating:
R
Ed Gein is the cult 2000 independent horror biopic based on the life of serial killer Ed Gein, directed by Chuck Parello. The film is set in Plainfied, Wisconsin during 1957 during the period of Ed Gein's murderous grave robbing ways. Ed (Steve Railsback, Helter Skelter) lives by himself deep in some local woods on his own isolated from the nearby town community and is a bit of a recluse. Ed is awkward and uncomfortable around other people who see him as a bit strange, a bit of a weirdo but ultimately harmless. Some of the local townspeople try to befriend him like barmaid Mary Hogan (Sally Champlin) and the owner of a local store Collette Marshall (Carol Mansell). However Ed is a very sick, messed up and twisted individual as he recalls his childhood that was filled with abuse by his Father George (Bill Cross) and strict religious Mother Augusta (Carrie Snodgress) while he would be expected to help in the brutal slaughter of farm animals. Ed often sees his dead Mother who convinces him to commit disgusting acts, at first digging up dead bodies but it soon turns into acts of cold blooded murder...moreless
