Aro Favourite Paradise Lost


USA 1996, 150 minutes
Dir. Joe Berlinger, Bruce Sinofsky
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary, Cult / Courtroom

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: A ‘tour de force’ crime documentary, courtroom saga and true life horror show, this is a bare witness account of the trial of three alienated teenagers indicted for the alleged “Satanic” slayings of three small boys in the Robin Hood Hills of Arkansas in 1993.

Looking as guilty as sin, and pitched against an inadequate justice system and a despairing, prejudiced community out for blood, the prospects look bleak for the three defendants, but as ‘evidence’ is presented by a cast of unforgettable characters, the implications become all the more disturbing until the final ‘revelation’. Music by Metallica strengthens the case of this American classic. Note: Story is followed up four years later in “Revelations: Paradise Lost 2”.
