    The Elizabeth Smart Story
    In June of 2002, 13-year-old Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her own bedroom in Salt Lake City, a crime witnessed by her younger sister Mary Katherine. The desperate search for Elizabeth evolved into a gigantic media event, as her anguished parents combined forces with the authorities -- and a number of top-rated cable talk show hosts -- to follow any lead, big or small, that would help them find their daughter. Eight months into the girl's disappearance, hopes for her safety were growing dim -- until, miraculously, she was spotted only a short distance from her home, accompanied by a pair of bizarre and seriously disturbed personalities, Brian David "Emmanuel" Mitchell and Wanda Barzee. Originally telecast November 9, 2003, by CBS, the made-for-TV Elizabeth Smart: The Long Way Home is divided into two plains of action: the ordeal of the abducted Elizabeth and her uncanny ability to keep her wits and optimism intact despite the ever-growing possibility that she would never see her parents again; and the dogged determination of Elizabeth's parents Ed and Lois, who against all odds, never gave up hope that their daughter was still alive and well. The film was released shortly after Elizabeth's rescue. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The city of Chicago was steeped in terror during the Summer of 1966 as a madman rampaged, leaving the lifeless bodies of eight nursing students in his path. That madman was Richard Speck and this film from director Keith Walley retells the story of the horrific murders committed by the infamous serial killer. Speck features Doug Cole in the title role. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    Taken in Broad Daylight
    James Van Der Beek (Dawson's Creek) shows off his dark side in this indie thriller about a kidnapped girl who fights back against her captor. Based on a true story, Taken in Broad Daylight follows the harrowing ordeal of Anne Sluti (Sara Canning, Kyle XY), a young woman abducted and tortured by a hardened criminal (Van Der Beek). Sluti carefully leaves clues as her captor moves her across state lines, allowing the police to stay close on her trail. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

    The Morrison Murders
    An older brother is faced with a wrenching decision after his investigation of his parents' murder implicates his younger brother, who curiously was named sole benefactor in the will. Based on a true story. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter
    Featuring rarely-seen photos and autopsy reports, this documentary delves deep into the history of Charles Manson and his infamously brutal crimes. The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter offers a detailed look at the various locations around Los Angeles that figured prominently in the Manson Family's murder spree in 1969. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

    The Interrogation of Michael Crowe
    Based on a true story, this made-for-cable drama focuses on the plight of 14-year-old Michael Crowe (Mark Rendall). When his younger sister is found murdered in her bed, Michael is accused of the crime and hauled into the local police station. After a grueling interrogation, the cops manage to coerce a confession out of the beleaguered boy. Michael's mother, Cheryl (Ally Sheedy), together with a small band of sympathizers, desperately takes on "the System" to fight for the boy's fundamental legal rights. The Interrogation of Michael Crowe debuted December 4, 2002, as one of several reality-based movies produced for the Court TV cable service. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
