Quite a few people seem to miss the fact that this isn't real. Video X is a highly effective FAUX Reality film similar to movies like The Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield & Cannibal Holocaust. This is a fact tie in to the film that provides additional back story.

Great Documentary
John Selas | Memphis, TN | 10/15/2003

"This documentary really takes you to the south. It's dark and eerie while still giving alot of information about the killings of Dwayne and Darla Jean. This is a must see for true-crime junkies. Some footage is included from Video X. I'll be looking for a copy of that if and when it comes out."
Thrilling for a documentary.
Becky White | Seattle, WA | 09/10/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Obviously, this is not my type of movie fare, but it looked interesting in a mysterious way, and it does not disappoint. From the chilling 911 calls in the opening seconds, to the unfolding of bizarre interviews, this documentary is really a psychological mystery that tries to explain why two "good" young people went on a murder spree. The documentary ends up searching for the home movie made by the criminals, "Video X: Evidence." "Video X: Evidence" I'm sure is too violent for me to want to view, but one does wonder what is on the tape. Although I feel sorry for the two young killers, their deeds are reprehensible. It is a sad commentary on the bleaker aspects of our children and society, and shows why a healthy family unit is truly the most important institution we have. Beware of the graphic crime photos, which might be prohibitive for some viewers."
