Pathetic...and has nothing to do with Kemper killings
This movie was downright wretched. I watched it on Showtime Extreme and found myself cleaning while it was on, it was THAT awful.
What offends me most is this has nothing to do with the killings.
The real story is so much more compelling. A 15 year old kills both grandparents, then gets committed, only to go on a killing spree when he gets out of the psychiatric facility at the age of 21. He was also 6'9".
This film has the era wrong...this was the late 60s and early 70s. It also has all the facts, essentially wrong. Kemper was not an average-size man in his 40s. He was a giant of a man in his early 20s.
A decent film would have recreated the entire case, so there would at least be come thought provoking questions (i.e. how do you let out a psychopath to kill again). Halloween (the remake), is probably closer to the true story than this one was.
This was just a cheesy, badly-done splatter film that slapped the name Kemper on it, for no apparent reason.
"Psycho" really had little to do with the Ed Gein case. But it didn't really pretend to, and it was extremely well made.
"Kemper," on the other hand.....bottom of the barrel.
