The Low End of True Crime
10 September 2015 | by mrdoyleSee all my reviews

In this age of loud, boisterous TV 'real' or 'true' crime shows, the focus appears to be on jarring music, industrial sound effects, poorly written scripts presented straight to camera by a pseudo- expert or media 'head' and ill-conceived and executed dramatizations. Crimes that Shook Australia succumbs to all of these pitfalls.

Aaccuracy is shoved to one side in favour of giving vapid host Stan Grant a celebrity link man pay check, dramatizations are terribly cast, important details are glossed over and in the case of recidivist crimes (like Peter Dupas) there is no mention on the system failing society in allowing a clearly disturbed man to reenter society to escalate his violent predilections.

Marry that with the above-mentioned cheesy-yet-jarring music bed & CtSA is just another bit of sensationalist filler, not even adopting the sometimes more sombre approach of its progenitor, the middling Crimes that Shook Britain.
