Doesn't say a whole lot more than the 80s "Fatal Vision"
23 December 2017 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

For those who haven't seen the 80s movie Fatal Vision, this is worth a watch. It's still one of the most puzzling true life murders ever. This movie was a little disappointing. It doesn't show that much more substance than the 80s movie. The only new thing is the point of view of true crime writer Joe McGinnis. It would have been better if it went more into the evidence that was in Jeffrey MacDonald's favor to balance things out. Another fault is the re-enactments were a little do dimly lit. Not clear enough. The story should have gone more to present day.

Acting was alright. Gary Cole in the 80s movie was more chilling than Scott Foley. Dave Annable plays the writer he is aged appropriately for the movie.

Worth one watch for anyone interested in true crime.
