John List stated in an interview that he originally planned to kill his family on November 1, 1971, because it was "All Saint's Day", a day he thought appropriate for sending them to Heaven. However, due to an interruption in his travel plans, he delayed the killings until eight days later, November 9. See more »

Judgment Day: The John List Story is another well done made for tv movie.
It's the true story about a man that was driven over the edge, and decides to kill his whole family (wife,3 kids, & his own mother). He planned it out & had a 2-week head start to get away. Robert Blake,s performance as John List was amazing. "John List" escaped from being captured for almost 20yrs. It took a profile on America,s Most Wanted to finally bring him to justice.
This movie may be disturbing to some viewers. But it's a story that had to be told. And it was done really well.
