Factual errors:
The house that Albert took Grace to is architecturally an early 1930s house. It would have been too new for it to have been that decrepit as well as abandoned.

User Review

A visual treat

Rating: 10/10

Period detective movie with outstanding craft and style. Albert Fish
was one of the first serial killers to live and die in America in the
early part of the last century. Although he committed crimes beyond
comprehension, his tale was relatively unknown, until now.

The story is based on a solid script with emphasis on plot and
character rather than gore and violence. This is not to say that this
is a family movie. It just avoids the temptation of gratuitous violence
and instead focuses on the human dimensions of the protagonists. The
story follows Detective King on his obsessive manhunt as he assembles
the clues to establish the killer's identity. At the same time, it
attempts to read into the mind of the killer, even portraying a bit of
his human side.

There are great performances by Patrick Bauchau (Fish) and Jack Conley
(Detective King). In addition, the stars of the movie was the stellar
photography by Dave Rudd, and the production design by Jennifer
Gentile. Given the modest budget, the film convincingly captures the
feel of New York in the 1920s and 1930s. The art department went to
great lengths to recreate the slightest period details. And yes, it was
shot on actual 35 mm film, in unsurpassed color. A visual feast.
