Eh

I'm not terribly sure this subject matter was interesting enough to warrant such an over dramatic retelling. I guess "redneck sorrow porn" is still selling well to the coast people as evidence that most middle Americans are just rubes.

A well told story of an Appalachian family and a "reformed" Pentecostal snake handler husband

This doc lays lays out a story of accounts from those in or around the attempted murder of an Appalachian mother, and they tell their stories as to how events unfolded before them almost 30 years ago. The most interesting accounts being from the convicted husband, and the abused wife (who, unfortunately, was most likely high on meth in this doc). He laid out what he knew from prison when he was interviewed decades ago - she laid out what she knew in this doc (while she was tweaked out of her mind.). It's not really a doc with firsthand footage, it's a doc with firsthand / secondhand / thirdhand accounts explaining what they remembered, saw or knew. And I must say, everyone told their stories very well. While oral history is told, you'll frequently have acted footage shown - one of the rare instances where this didn't take away from the doc, but rather added to it. The small amount of historical footage shown paints the scene at the time, while the spoken accounts tell the actual story. Side note: Religion is interesting, good or bad. With that said... this isn't a movie about religion, nor is this a move about politics. This is more of a human interest doc - real folklore if you will. The fact there's a review claiming this is a "left wing" doc with an "anti religion agenda" is mind boggling to me. That's not the case at all, and it's sad to see people claiming such - so much so that I decided to create an account just to make this review... Documentary fans, you will enjoy this story, and it'll keep you hooked as the story unfolds.

Part ID Channel/Part HBO

Not bad, but not top tier HBO stuff either. Still, creepy as hell. I'm not sure what's spookier: that certain parts could be real OR the fact those involved actually believe it to be real. (If interested, this story is covered in the Cults podcast: "Church of Jesus With Signs Following" - Glenn Summerford)
