Since 1998 The Smiley Face Killers gang has been responsible for the drowning deaths of over 80 young men across 11 states. They torture their victims using water boarding style techniques for days and in some cases months until they kill them. Then they dump the bodies in nearby rivers or lakes subsequently washing away any evidence and always leave their signature, a Smiley Face painted nearby. In 2011, Andrew Fitzgerald who had followed the cases since he was in high school began working on a documentary that once completed would be the most comprehensive piece ever done on these killers. He was working in New York City at the time as a videographer/editor and with his equipment and skills was making the film in his spare time. Using social media as a launch pad he was generating interest along the way by documenting the behind the scenes happenings so people could see first hand just what it took to make a film of this caliber. —Anonymous
This mockumentary is a disgraceful, disrespectful, cynical attempt at what? Is it black humor? Is this about adding a credit to a resume? To be so unfeeling and cold, so effortlessly, is all I'd ever need to witness regarding anyone involved in this piece of garbage. There were real victims and there are real, heartbroken families and friends left behind, you jerks. How proud and happy YOUR families must be. Shame on you all. This continued pattern of murders and senseless loss of promising young people is terrifying, and should be treated as such. Perhaps Steph Young, David Paulides, or some other tireless researcher or author will finally be able to uncover what's behind these sinister crimes. If a senator's son died this way, I think we'd see a tremendous amount of publicity and effort to solve the crime. So sad.
