User Reviews

 
A unique, uncomfortable, but utterly compelling documentary
29 April 2017 | by themikeman-65866See all my reviews

This is not your average true crime documentary at but boy is it a good one! The recollections from the locals is very haunting as well as their own personal experiences and how it connects to the murders. There are uncomfortable parts but that just makes it more compelling and emotional.
