  • Holy hell....literally

    My only complaint about this documentary is that a major player was entirely left out of the telling. I would have liked for the filmmaker to delve deeper into the role that religion played into this ordeal. Were they fundamentalist LDS? Why did the parents allow this man around their pre-teen daughter? Why did they even consider allowing him to marry her? Both parents were involved sexually with the man who abducted their daughter? I don't think naivety fully explains the parents actions towards this man. It's absolutely unfathomable.

    It’s well made and interesting, but I only gave it 3 stars because the story itself is so disturbing. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a more bizarre occurrence. I’m glad that Jan was able to turn her trauma around for good by speaking in order to help others. However, the lack of parental wisdom and protection left me completely speechless. Jan is very courageous and strong not only by helping others but by being open to keeping her relationship with her parents intact. God bless you, Jan.

    All I can say about this movie is titillating. I would not recommend renting or buying this movie.

    What a stupid family. Pity the poor fools for allowing the evil into their lives.
  • Hyper-religiousity at it's finest...

    It's so hard to empathize with anyone but the poor 12 year old, now a woman, who was the victim of both a sociopathic sexual predator and a couple of very naive, very troubled parents. If you think this was disturbing, see the 2003 documentary Capturing the Friedmans.

    Had the pleasure of seeing this at the Tallgrass Film Festival a couple years ago, and I'm STOKED it's available on iTunes! This is a crazy, twisty-turny, totally mind blowing film, that really stuck with me. I couldn’t stop talking about it for weeks afterwards. Really extraordinary story telling that has the perfect mix of shocking revelations and heartfelt interviews. The filmmaking craft is truly outstanding. By far, the best True Crime documentary I have ever seen.

    When I saw this documentary, I couldn’t believe I had no idea this had actually happened. It’s heartbreaking that stories like this still exist to this day. It’s frightening, chilling, and scary to think those we trust and love could do something so freaky. I’m glad these filmmakers (and the actual victims) created this well-told story so all could be made aware. Bravo.
