Gary J. Caldwell,
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 »
I rated this movie a 2 out of 10 for the simple reason it is fictional. The story of Ed Kemper is interesting especially to people who enjoy reading and studying serial killers like him, but this movie isn't that. They take the name of Ed Kemper and use it to make a movie and use the whole "based on actual events" trick to get it to sell. While they did use little tid bits here and there that were factual(like Ed sticking his moms vocal cords in the garbage disposal), this movie was fictional. That ruined the movie for me knowing that while watching it I wasn't seeing the actual story of Ed Kemper. Overall, if this was just another movie I would rate this up to a 5 for it just being a straight up independent film of new actors and directors(people have to start somewhere). But since this film used a serial killer's name to sell and claim to tell a true story, I give a 2.
