Below average TV docudrama gone bad!
19 February 2006 | by the_midnight_c0wboySee all my reviews

Giving this movie a 3 out of 10 is being very nice. This not so typical TV movie was originally done for CBS and is a cruel fate for an interesting and sad story of murder in the South. Its a shame for the family of the victims that this is the version that was presented for those unfamiliar with the story.

Both the director and writer were TV veterans that were in the twilight of their careers, and both coincidentally died 3 years after this movie was made. Its hard to say what's worst with this train-wreck, the direction or the writing. With its horrible editing, badly performed scenes and clunky dialog, it's a close race. The acting wasn't much better than the script, but you can't blame the actors given what they had to work with, in bad made for TV movies they usually go hand in hand. One possible exception was with one of the villains played by Brad Dourif, who gave one of his usual creepy and effective performances, too bad it was all at the end of the movie. I have to also mention and give an honorable mention to the annoying early 80s synthesized sound track, that added the perfect touch to this unwatchable masterpiece. It would have been a typical and average soundtrack if done in 1980, too bad it was done in the late 80s. Bad made for TV movies were a dime a dozen in the 70s and 80s and this one is no different. They filled in the slack time for the big 3 networks and where effective for the low money spent to get the low ratings they received. Unfortunately a replacement was found for them in the endless bad reality TV we now sit through. I guess pick your poison, I personally pick the endless investigative TV news shows of the 90s.
