Editorial Reviews

Based on a true story of an obsessive manhunt to identify and capture the most monstrous, yet least known serial killer in the history of true crime in America -- Albert Fish. In 1928, a 10 year old, Grace Budd, is abducted by a kindly old grandfather and never seen again. After scouring the country for 6 years, detectives finally arrest Albert Fish for her kidnapping but are unprepared for the horrors they are about to uncover. This is the story of a real life Hannibal Lector.

Format: DVD
What an incredible depiction of those horrible events. The story (and DVD) are very cut and dry, no additions or dramatic overtones/liberties taken with plot lines - just a solid portrayal of horrendous events.

The story follows Albert Fish towards the last 10 years of his life as he devolves into the convicted homicidal cannibal. The police end of the story is concise and centers mostly on the lead detective King, who intermittently narrates his part of the film. Bauchau's display of Fish appears to be very authentic, down to the painful self mutilation he became known for. Even the supporting roles were abrupt but relevant for the film.

The camera work and period recreation were done articulately, and there was never a time of picking apart cityscapes or props. Nothing distracts from the overall story, even when it came time for there to be chances for gory scenes, they instead chose to go with suspenseful angles and figuring on the viewer would know what happened. The sound is unfortunately 2.0 and DVD is devoid of anything supplemental. Typically, films that cover these topics have at least epilogues, informative supplementals, period design pics, etc. But nothing here. The cover art is frustrating as they keep trying to push this as a Hannibal Lecter attachment, but this stands on its own. The R rating is strictly for themes as almost everything is assumed (no actual butcher/bloodbath footage or kids in distress - like Changeling).

The Gray Man (Scott Flynn, 2007)

Interesting if minor film about one of America's most notorious serial killers and the manhunt that brought him to justice. Flynn's first (and to date last) directorial effort, and it shows, but there's actually quite a bit to like here if you're willing to look under the amateurish hood.

Albert Fish (Patrick Bauchau, recently of 2012) is the nice, if kind of creepy, guy next door. That is, unless you have a small child. Then he becomes the not-so-nice, really creepy guy next door, because he wants to have your tots come over for dinner. As the main course. Fish also has himself some pretty nasty anger issues, which he usually vents in long, rambling letters to the local papers. As we pick up the story, Al is on the hunt for a new victim, when the law gets a whiff of what he might have been up to. This is the law in the form of Will King (Fast and Furious' Jack Conley), the kind of obsessed detective you find in just about every serial killer movie (if you were one of the unfortunates who saw The Black Dahlia, you know what I mean). With the cops hot on his tail, Fish spots what he believes to be his perfect victim: Grace Budd (Lexi Ainsworth, currently taking a turn on General Hospital). Parallel tracks run in the movie as Fish seduces Grace and the cops close in on Fish.

Fish was right in at least one respect; Budd was his perfect victim. It was her murder for which he was put on trial and executed. As such, it does make sense for the movie to focus on his relationship with Budd and her family (though despite the movie's R rating, it soft-pedals pretty much every aspect of that relationship), though that leaves a gold mine of known and suspected information about Fish to be mined for future films.

This movie, which could have been done with the horrendous gore and spectacular vividness of today's special effects teams, was very tastefully done instead. The film tells the awful story without dwelling in the sensational, but taking the real life characters to present them as nearly true to life as possible. Having watched the filming of this movie made me aware of this early serial killer in America that has escaped the modern world's attention. He killed and cannibalized children. He was evil personified, yet...he was a father of six children himself, a single parent who was so tortured by his obsessions that he punished himself in gruesome ways to try to atone for the murders. Albert Fish, a name known to only those who study aberrations in humans, is portrayed brilliantly by Patrick Bauchau. Jack Conley plays the almost washed up detective who actually puts together the random molestations and disappearances of children in the 1920's, working the case of one child. He follows leads that take him on a six year mind-bending mission until he finally is able to track down the amazingly twisted Fish. Directed by Scott Flynn, this film takes you to places in the human mind that most will never encounter, but it does make the viewer aware that background checks are a good thing!

Albert Fish is probably the most monstrous of our known human monsters.
Although he was convicted and electrocuted for the murder of one little girl, he taunted his captors that he was also responsible for a hundred more missing child/person cases.
The Gray Man comes across as a movie that's very careful not to shock anyone.
Portraying this human nightmare is handsome, talented, charming Patrick Bauchau. In no way does he suggest darkness, psychosis or evil. Granted, a few scenes depict his violent masochism when he beats himself with a belt, but other than that, everything in this movie is all clean, glossy, sunny. It could almost qualify as a movie fit for the Disney channel.
Even the main event--when Fish persuades the parents of a pretty little girl to accompany him to a picnic--is glossed over. We see the couple going to an isolated farm house. Fish enters first and goes upstairs to prepare for the human butchery. Then he sticks his head out the window and asks for the child to join him.
This is a movie that should shock and unnerve the viewer to hit home the diabolical evil of this man.
Research shows that physically, Fish looked strange, thin, grizzled. Bauchau is like a romantic lead from another movie.
The Gray Man needed an Alfred Hitchcock to be in charge--or some of the up and coming horror experts.
This movie shouldn't be presented as a glossy looking little peek into the l920s with everyone nicely dressed and the weather always sunny. I was expecting to be scared and repulsed--in a cinematic way--when I read that this movie was based on the life of Albert Fish. Instead, I found myself yawning while resisting an impulse to hit the "eject" button on my remote.
