great movie
12 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have looked for this movie many times. I recall seeing it 20 plus years ago and that image stayed in my mind. The brutality of the way they killed this family. I had sleepless nights and now I want too view it again. This poor country southern family were killed in cold blood. It had an impact on me. I can't think of any movie that effected me like murder one. It's based on a true story, it was on the local news. This was real! I know I was a different person then. So I'm looking forward to seeing it again........ It's like something you have looked for years and finally find it. It was compelling and sickening at the same time. However it was true. After I see it I Wanna find out what happened to those that killed them. It seems like they lived in a small country house or........ A trailer. Yes a trailer I think. Monsters is what they are or were.
