Trivia

The comedy film "30 Minutes or Less" was inspired by these events. Some viewers found the film to be distasteful, and some of the investigators derided the film. However the writers insist that they didn't intend to make a mockery, and that the events were only "loosely in [their] minds" when developing the script. See more »

Blown away by the research
13 May 2018 | by Archie-LeechSee all my reviews

A perfect storm of doc-making. You have a researcher who's spent 15 years of his life getting close to every character, you have a compelling edit that never drags and creates more twists and suspense then 99.8% documentaries, and last of all you have one of the weirdest and most dumbfounding crimes ever undertaken. Blown away by this series and a huge congrats to everyone who worked on it.
