    jeepers creepers. I mean, that creature (with fucking wings) could exist, right? And it was scary as fuck, with its superhuman strength, being able to fly and eager to use your skin to blend into society... which actually ended up not happening, so the ending of the first one made no fucking sense and Justin Long died for nothing!!!
    What a fucking awful movie that was.

    The first one was fucking terrible, but not gonna lie I loved the second one. For two reasons.

    1. Ray Wise.
    2. It was directed by a pederast. Seriously.

    What's with the quibbling about whether Silence of the Lambs or Henry are horror films? Of course they're fucking horror films, they're about psychopaths who cut people up for fun.

    Peeping Tom and The Collector (1965) are highly realistic and seriously disturbing.

    The characters and events covered in these 3 films :
    • Psycho (Norman Bates)
    • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Leatherface & clan)
    • Silence Of The Lambs (both Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill characters)
    were all based on a single man in real life.
    This mans name was Ed Gein.

    (The real Ed Gein upon his arrest)

    Also, specifically about Ed Gein himself, there was Ed Gein (2000) starring Steve Railsback as Ed.

    Railsback is a superb actor who also gave a chilling performance in the 1970's as Charles Manson in the 1976 film Helter Skelter.

    There are documentaries on Ed as well (check YouTube).
    Be warned.....when Googling....images are extremely graphic and not for work or sensitive viewers.
