I didn't see the movie, I didn't have to.
20 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't see the movie, I don't have to. I saw Carl Issacs in 1988 during his retrial in Perry,Ga.It was like looking at the devil. But not in the horror way but in the way "is that him? That Shrimp caused so many wrecked lives?" When I visit my cousin at Lake Seminole I have to go by the Church where those poor people are buried. They died on my Aunt's birthday. I knew their kin. Mary's family lived in Colquitt where my grandmother lived. I've been past their farm on River Road. And I saw that murderer Carl Issacs. My parents saw Billy when he was being brought in in chains, to testify against Carl. I say the movie is awful because this story has been with me all these years and will be. One more thing, I remember being at a feed and seed store with my Mother's stepfather and looking at the Seminole Jail knowing that those murderers were in there and wondering were they looking at me. I was 11 years old. No I don't need to see, nor do I want to see that movie,Wayne Coleman, or George Dungee, or even Billy Issacs might be getting royalties.
