Spotlights Lesser Known Yet Horrific Crimes
25 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is another true crime show and I know what you think: why is this one any different? Dead Silent does feel immediately different as it goes back in time to study some really nasty crimes you probably have never heard of. Like a serial killer on The Appalachian Trail whose crimes were separated by 27-years with a prison stint in between. A retired professor who is definitely unusual being singled out for his remote lavish home seeming to make an easy mark for a robbery. Or a remote Idaho murder by a man who was as likely possessed as he was imbalanced. Both time and being uniquely regional may have made these stories known but to a few. These are the murders the initial episodes of "Dead Silent" revisit. They're all equally creepy as well as morally bankrupt, and, sadly, interesting. They bring into focus the evil that walks calmly among us often with clues, yet never really portending the torrent of evil that may unleash itself.

I like the vibe of this show. It involves the real cast on both side of these terrible murders in well made re-enactments. It doesn't pander to jump scares, but intelligently tells the gist of each case in fairly graphic recreations of the crazed mayhem. It attempts to cast light on both the localities as well as strange occurrences without bombast. I'd have to say it succeeds. It's much like watching a very real horror film as the darkness unfolds.

It's a tragedy that in our country there is so many unknown crimes of this magnitude, however this show will certainly raise consciousness of how we may be just a hair away from evil that challenges our comprehension. If the producers keep this high level in both content and presentation this show will rise up and distinguish itself in the genre.
