Director Atom Egoyan adapts journalist Mara Leveritt non-fiction book to the screen in this docudrama centered on the investigation into the notorious West Memphis Three case (previously the subject of filmmaker Joe Berlinger's Paradise Lost documentaries). Centered on the investigation conducted by private detective Ron Lax (Colin Firth), The Devil's Knot details the discovery of crucial DNA evidence that helped to win back the freedom of Arkansas teens Damien Echols, James Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley Jr., who were accused of ritualistically murdering three young boys in 1993. Stephen Moyer and Reese Witherspoon co-star.~Jason Buchanan
Good film very informative and I opening the story of the boys makes you think about the inncocence and or guilt of the accused. Would highly recommend watching it keeps you intrigued throughout the entire movie. If you can catch it in redbox I would do that not necessarily a movie you will watch over and over again but definitely a good one
Based on a true story you won’t believe what your eyes see.Keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end it makes you wonder how evil people can be.this trailer-horror films Makes it even more sad because it’s based on a true story
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great movie based on true events.
Great movie! It would have been better if in the end they would have more of an update of the people involved. Katie Couric had Damien Echols on her show on day and he and his wife wrote a book about this. He is out of prison now and moved on w/ his life. Such a tragedy for everyone involved.
