Chilling, 3 April 2011

I'd never heard of this documentary, but after reading the plot summary on Netflix I decided to check it out. Honestly, I almost turned the movie off after the first five minutes. The opening re- enactment, ham fisted narration, and use of stock footage was almost laughable. But, as the movie went on it really grabbed me. The opening presents you with a mystery and you begin to question what you're seeing.

"What did the letter say?"

"Did he or didn't he commit the crime?"

The films finale is very effective. This is a truly frightening film, for a lot of reasons, I'm glad I had the chance to see it.
