David McCracken: Special delivery, Wayne County, Deerborn, Michigan.
Jennifer Borman: So you solved the case of the missing pederast?
David McCracken: Sure did. Daniel Alan Burroughs, father of Susan Ellroy, died after a run in with a bottle of scotch and a train.
Jennifer Borman: Are you serious?
David McCracken: Yup. Two years ago this January. He's dead.
Jennifer Borman: We've got a lot of phone calls to make.
David McCracken: Jen.
Jennifer Borman: Yeah?
David McCracken: How much more evidence do you need against this guy to make him the prime suspect? I mean, we've been chasing down a dead man. Meantime, we've got this priest running around...

Fact or Fiction? I hope it didn't really happen!
14 December 2013 | by kimja65See all my reviews

Great Indie Flick! Shocking ending and really cool special affects. Cool story, is it based on true events? I can't wait to see it again. It is a much better production than some suspense horror flicks I have seen from the big picture houses. It might offend some strongly religious Christians so be forewarned. The little girl Sidney did a great job acting in this and so did the Priest. I saw this in a theater in Evansville where I think it was made. I definitely will download if or rent it to watch again when it comes out on DVD or VOD. It's not a slasher film at all. If you liked the Excorcist and the Omen series you will enjoy this as it is an actual story.
