love this documentary! saw it on Netflix when it was on there for a while. very well done and super informative!!
I love this! Seen it a few times and I think it is very well done. Super interesting stories, and the ones doing the documentary are very good. If you like this, then check out Cropsey. That is the other documentary that this crew does and it is also good.
Mixed feelings on it. Overall it is a slick piece of documentary, but the narrator's voice is very drama-filled, and the music and presentation is very commercial. Sort of feels like something you'd see on cable TV in the afternoon on a B-grade channel. The makers also tend to extrapolate facts and make connections that aren't very well supported. But, entertaining, and I learned a few things.
great true crime doc, kept my attention the whole time.
This the third time I watch it and it never disappoints
