Quotes

James Vance: I come to visit this place every so often and I talk to Ray - like a dead person - I don't expect an answer and I do tell him what's on my heart, still. I would like to call certain people murderers. I feel that they murdered Ray. I just wish it never happened.

Director wasn't being objective...
22 September 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

The purpose of this documentary was to prove a one sided opinion of facts presented in this case. Van Taylor was looking at this from Judas Priest's point of view. He essentially was looking to disprove the families claim that the music and "subliminal" messages were to blame for these kids problems and ultimate suicide attempt. Van Taylor, through interviews, court proceedings and song lyrics mixed in, basically disproves any theory that the family tried to push across. These kids had horrible childhoods and grew up in alcoholic/drugs/abusive households where the NATURAL father wasn't in the picture. I loved the point where the boys (Belknap) sister, was on the stand, and had to basically tell the court she had attempted suicide twice and was NEVER a listener of heavy metal.
