The pious John List regularly goes to church and is respected by his neighbours. But one day the police finds his wife Helen and their three children slayed in their house - obviously by John, who left two letters for the police and his priest and disappeared. Chief Richland is disgusted by the murder and starts an intensive investigation. In flashbacks we learn about the history of the disaster. Written by

John List was so apparently confused as to the will of God. Robert Blake did an awesome job of performing this twisted man. Awesome movie I suggest anyone interested in true life crimes to watch this one. One can only imagine the horrors that John List must have seen when he closed his eyes at night. His mother was in my opinion, the main reason John List was the way he was. She taught him some very odd lessons in life. His defense was "Guilty: Due to a twisted religious belief." Or words to that affect. I found is particularly curious that when confronted Robert Clark confessed he was John List. I didn't really expect that, but at the same time, I guess it does make sense since he was so concerned with sin.
