SKIP IT. There are better true-crime docuseries out there.

Murder in the Bayou might be set up for guilty pleasure viewing except for the effort it puts into establishing the context of the community and the crimes and the empathy behind the camera.

Sep 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Has strong echoes of the Southern Gothic genre in filmed drama... That's partly about the visual language (the series looks amazing), but chiefly it's because of the enormous gap between the wealthy and the dirt poor.

Director Matthew Galkin and journalist Ethan Brown compile riveting interviews with those around the murders to paint an ever more disturbing picture.

    Truly one of the best documentaries I have seen in years. Filmmakers do an amazing job at focusing on the families and lives of the victims while explaining the many different theories as to how such a sad situation is possible in this country. A devastating must watch.

    Yet again, if you want to have justice you've got to have the money buy. Excellent documentary and truly moving.
