Christy Carlson Romano,
The quiet, affluent suburb of Delmar, New York, was considered anything but dangerous...until 21-year-old Chris Porco was accused of brutally murdering his father Peter and disfiguring his mother Joan in a savage ax attack, a claim made all the more shocking when the case's lead detective Joe Sullivan believed Joan had identified Chris as her attacker. Weeks after the crime, however, Joan would refute Detective Sullivan's story, while the town of Delmar and many of Chris' former friends and girlfriends would also rally to his defense, despite Sullivan's fierce mission to prove his guilt. Prosecutors believed that beneath Chris' picture-perfect facade was a greedy and cunning sociopath who would stop at nothing to keep his lies hidden. In the end, he was convicted of second-degree murder of his father, but many in the town of Delmar firmly believe that the prosecution rushed to judgment and the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man.

One of the worst dramatizations of a true story I have ever seen. Poor script, bad acting, actors, screenplay, etc. It was simply terrible. They took what could have been a great story and ruined it. I only give it a 1 because that was the lowest possible score. Frankly, it should not even get a score. Also, the choice to rewrite the story and fictionalize much of the facts was in my view just dumb. The true story was much better. It was just awful. Don't bother - waste of 2 hours. Watch the documentary that aired after instead. Some of the more interesting facts; such as the husband/wife defense lawyer team were omitted. The actor chosen to play Porco's lawyer was poor suited for the role and fell flat. It was just really, really bad.
