Damien Echols dresses in black, listens to heavy metal, and dabbles in the Wicca relgion, but does that make him a killer? A month after the murders of 3 little boys, Echols and 2 friends are arrested and instantly condemned by a retribution-hungry public. Can these disaffect youth defend themselves against a dubious lack of proof, particularly when the local media has already editorialized their sins in blood? The film was made by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky.
The brutal slaying of three children leads to the arrest and trial of three teenagers whose only crime seems to be their interest in heavy metal music. A gripping documentary from the makers of 'Brother's Keeper.'
