Considering the fact that Good Friday of 1973 is when Edmund Kemper murdered his mother, and was arrested shortly afterwards, it is doubtful that cellphones and laptop computers were available at that time. See more »

The Filmmakers Know Very Little About Kemper
9 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, Ed Kemper was 6'9" tall - the actor playing him was short and way too old for the role. Kemper trolled college campuses for his victims and would not have been able to get to as many young women if he were in his 40's as he was portrayed.

Kemper was extremely intelligent and likable, but this merely portrays him as a one-note freak. Which he was not.

Dialogue terrible, and cell phones and computers in the 1970's! Who was the production designer? Glad I didn't pay to see this one. I wish a really fine movie would be made about this brilliant killer - too bad he wasn't able to use his smarts for the good of the world.

Even Kemper (he is still alive in prison) would roll with laughter at the way he's portrayed here.

Boring boring boring and pathetic piece of tripe.
