PARADISE LOST: THE CHILD MURDERS OF ROBIN HOOD HILLS

"Imagine all the evil you could think of." Residents of West Memphis, Arkansas, didn't have to imagine on May 5, 1993 when three 8-year-old boys were cruelly slain in a wooded area. Soon three teens with heavy metal and occult interests are arrested. Perky newsanchors and self-ordained experts expound on Satanism and ritual killing, while six sets of grieving parents swear to either vengeance for the victims or the innocence of the accused. In this explosive atmoshpere the case goes to trialk in a justice system under question. The filmmakers are the same courtroom chroniclers behind "Brother's Keeper" (16 CIFF, 1992), back with a chlling, true-life legal thriller and horror story that will have viewers searching for the Devil's Sign both in the bland, banal faces of suspects and the muderously righteous wrath of the dead boys' families
