Film #123: ED GEIN: THE GHOUL OF PLAINFIELD
Ed Gein - The Ghoul of Plainfield
2.75 out of 5 stars
A fairly rudimentary doc on Gein and his crimes. There are some interesting photos (ones I’d not seen), but the film is otherwise pretty pedestrian. If you know nothing about Gein… this is great. If you know even a little, this’ll have a lot of things you already knew. Well-made & well-researched, ED GEIN: THE GHOUL OF PLAINFIELD is worth seeing… with measured expectations.
