"This movie (as described in other reviews) wasn't extremely accurate with the details of what had actually happened but does give you a basic understanding. In real life Rod was a gangly teen with long hair not a manipulating hottie. But Drew Fuller who played Rod did do a great job of how they wanted to depict the leader of the group. When watching this movie people have to remember that this is a MOVIE not a documentary and is only based on what really happened. If you rent this movie hoping to see what actually went one during the murder in 1996, you will be sadly disappointed, although pleased by the acting. If you want to get only the facts then get a book from the library, if you want the facts but also to be entertained and wowed by how gorgeous Drew Fuller is...then get this movie."
Good Telling Of A Morbid True Story

"After watching the movie I remembered some of the details around this true life story, and the movie was accurate to the facts. The best acting came from Drew Fuller, (Voodoo Academy) who played the lead role as the leader of this gang of twisted kids. He had the look and sound of a twisted genious down and was very well cast in the role. The remainder of the cast ranged from ok to blahhhhzay, again making Fuller's performance stand out. The movie takes you back and forth, starting with the arrest of the gang members and working out all the details throughout the movie. It wasn't as gory as expected it to be, and to be honest it shouldn't be seen as a horror movie.
Unfortunately there were no extras to speak of, no commentary, cast bios, etc. Just the basics."

"first off Drew Fuller is a amazing actor and was great in this moive. He is also the only reason I brought the movie.
it's very hard to like this movie because it's real and you should never like something about a murder like this. But it has Drew, so....
my question about the real people is was Rod's girlfriend really pregnant and if so what happen to the baby, since she's in jail. Also Rod got life in prison, does anyone know how long that is, since he's so young, can he be released someday
(personal note: I hope he's never released for the sake of all americans, and I think Heather was involved and should be in jail too.)"
