Absolutely Haunting
17 July 2018 | by jakeetobiczykSee all my reviews

As the title suggests, this documentary will most definitely haunt you. It will expose you to forms of evil and treachery that you thought only existed in the movies. While Eddie Fischer, the culprit of these sexual crimes, is the primary focus of the documentary, there is an arguably even greater perpetrator at work below the surface. However, the story and subject of this documentary is handled with deserved respect and care by Paige Goldberg Tolmach, an alumni of Porter-Gaud, where these malicious acts occurred. Had this been piloted by anyone else, the quest for answers and the passion for exposing the truth to the rest of the world could have been easily omitted and left to the wayside. The interviews with the victims, accompanied by some artistically animated visuals, all help to paint this tragic picture for the masses to take in and learn from it. But beyond the feelings of sadness this documentary evokes, it also gives us hope for the survivors of these acts and appreciation for those who tried putting an end to them. Nonetheless, while this documentary is a must watch for almost any viewer of appropriate age, I strongly advise warning anyone considering watching What Haunts Us that has been a victim of sexual abuse to brace themselves for what they are about to see.
