I once watched it with a superstitious person and they didn’t know it was about possession, as soon as the possession happened he started screaming “demons!...Demons!....demons!...”. Good times
Raised Catholic. The scariest movie I've ever seen!
"Repossessed" starring Linda Blair, Leslie Nielson & Ned Beatty is truly one of the greatest movies ever made. And more realistic than the original IMO.
The Keepers on Netflix is far scarier. (And it’s nonfiction ! )
Saw it when I was a kid and a few times since.I am 61 now and saw it again a few months ago and it still gave me the creeps..
Texas chainsaw massacre was non fiction too. At least that is what is written at the beginning of the flick.
That’s not in the version I’ve seen
"The film was marketed as being based on true events to attract a wider audience and to act as a subtle commentary on the era's political climate; although the character of Leatherface and minor story details were inspired by the crimes of murderer Ed Gein, its plot is largely fictional"
Elements of Ed Gein's story were also the inspiration for Psycho and Silence of the Lambs, among others
I grew up one mile from where Ed's house stood
If you haven't already and you are into that sort of stories, you should read deviant by
harold schechter. About ed gein.
Very minor details are based on Gein story. I won't get into details here, but yeah, there are a few things inspired by the creepiest guy in plainfield.
Movies actually trying to tell the Gein story are all really bad. Some of the worst offending details are: mountains on the horizon of Plainfield (uh, how do you think the area got it's name?), southern accents for everyone (um, yeah. We're Cheeseheads) , and placing telephone calls to 911 (this stuff went down in the 50s)
The best movie on the real story is probably "Ed Gein: The Musical"
(this does exist)
The Heretic goes even further and is a good additon to the story.
If we're going to start finding fault with Hollywood realism we'll be here forever. One of the worst offenders - Clint Eastwood.
"Springtime for Ed"!
Hey, it's my hometown, I figure that makes it ok
Watched this movie. Gave me the creeps.
Max Von Sydow - left us for good only a few weeks ago. Wonderful actor.
