As far as the serial killer reinactment movies goes this one seems fine. It at least tries to cover his life before the mayhem and of course it has a reinactment of his depraved behavior. Still somehow with such an interesting character they've managed to make plenty of boring parts in the film which didn't need to be there. If you aren't familiar with Gein's story I'd recommend watching "Derranged" instead as it's far more entertaining and has a creepier feel to it. In fact I can't really think of very many reasons to even go here unless you can't find "Derranged" nor can you find any actual documentaries about Gein.
