Fact-based movie about brutal killings in Georgia in 1973
7 May 2003 | by dbdukesSee all my reviews

The characters and incidents depicted in the movie are all too real. Carl Isaacs was executed May 6, 2003 for his role in the 1973 murders. There are discrepancies that always arise when trying to tell a true story, but the basic facts are there. The murders in the movie are brutal and senseless. The actual murders were just that. Still, the movie rates no more than a 5 out of 10. Better than much fare found on TV, but not much better.
