In the Hospital files from Atascadero State Hospital, Kemper's full name is stated as "Edward Kemper", as someone probably assumed that Ed was a short for Edward. This is incorrect: Ed in this case is a short for Edmund, and in this context they most likely would've used his full name, Edmund Emil Kemper III. See more »
Maybe it was my mood, maybe I was drawn in by the "based on a true story" lure, but I found this film peculiarly entertaining. I don't know how accurate it is as to the facts, but we do know there was this strange killer. The problem with the facts has to do with the description of Ed Kemper being a serial killer of the sixties and seventies, yet we're seeing newer cars and cell phones. Maybe I'm just obtuse, but when TV shows like the new "Life On Mars" are more accurately portraying a time period I have to wonder. Still, I was sucked in by the presentation and the story enough to watch it until the end. It's not that gory and it does rely heavily on character, it might be too mild for those seeking a real creep-out.
