Watch Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills - Alternative Versions.
I'll admit that I've never been too crazy about documentaries. For one
thing, I think that they are generally biased and you are only seeing what
the film-makers want you to see. Now, I watched Paradise Lost for several
reasons. One, I've always been intrigued by peoples' ignorance and I'm
still amazed at how quick they are to point a finger at something they know
nothing about. Several years ago, I remember this story being all over the
news, and the way it was presented then, it was very easy to believe that
these three outcasts were the killers. I've been through West Memphis
numerous times since the killings and I still get the chills everytime I
pass by the Blue Beacon truckwash.
I sat down to this three hour film with a pretty open mind. While the film
doesn't really answer any questions, it does bring a lot to mind and never
takes sides on whether the boys did or didn't do it. That's what I admire
about the film-makers. They managed to stay almost completely neutral, no
matter what their feelings or opinions may have been on who the actual
Watching this movie is scary. I've polluted my mind over the years with
just about every junk-horror movie that I could find and nothing has given
me that icy feeling quite like this has. I've seen it three times now and
it never loses its impact.
For those who don't know, here's the story: In West Memphis, three young
children are found mutilated in a patch of woods just off the interstate.
For no real reason whatsoever, three nonconformist teens are brought to
trial, one of which has an I.Q. that is somewhere in the 70s. When he
a very phony sounding confession, the trials begin with absolutely no other
evidence to prove that the boys are guilty. Throughout the film, we meet
each of the deceased boys parents, the defendents, and the defendents'
families. Most angry of all are the parents of the Byers boy who was
murdered. Now, before I get started on the step-father Mark Byers, I
want to say that I can totally empathize with the guy and his rage is
completely understandable. However, what I really can't get past is the
guy's bizarre behavior and the impression that he left me with. The guy
takes up a lot of screen time. I know that the guy is a jeweler by trade
and acting may not be his thing, but this is a DOCUMENTARY and while
watching him, on more than several occasions I got a little confused.
the guy has some mental problems, he's on numerous medications, he's
suffering from a brain tumor and he's going through some major grieving.
But why does he act like he's been watching TOO much WWF? His lines are
straight out of a BAD movie and if this is how the guy really is, I'm
staying the hell out of this guy's way. Throughout the film there are
several subtle (or not so subtle) indications that he may be a suspect.
fact that he gave one of the film-makers a bloody knife as a Christmas
present more than proves that the guy is a little off his rocker. He even
admitted to having beat the child the day that he was murdered.
Remember, there is absolutely NO physical evidence to pin on the accused
the only thing that got them there was a false confession given by a
retarded teenager who had been interrogated for hours. Oh, and did I
mention that his story KEPT changing? Listening to Jesse Misskelly, the
time that the boys were murdered takes place all over the clock. Once, he
states that the boys were murdered in the A.M. hours, then during broad
daylight, then at night. I don't get it. It didn't matter to the jury.
of the boys still got life sentences and the other (Damien Eckols) got the
death sentence. His crime is that he had a fondness for wearing black, had
bad haircut, and a slight interest in Wicca...Not a whole lot different
myself. Anyway, there is also mention of another mysterious person who
an appearance in a Bojangles restaurant restroom, covered in blood. Oh
that is another issue that is barely mentioned, and then dropped.
After seeing this movie, I was still terribly confused and my questions
still unanswered, but I guess that is the sign of a good documentary. I'm
really glad that the film-makers stuck with the facts and never let their
opions get in the way of making the film. The sequel is also very good,
still leaves nothing answered. Now, it's been several years since the
time I watched this but the boys are still in prison, still trying to get
out. I reccomend this film to anyone who has ever been criticized for
appearance. It'll make you realize just how lucky you are, while
the justice system at the same time.
