There were way too many interviews with people who tried their best to turn these witches into humans, but why? Why weren't there more interviews with the children's biological family members? Why didn't this documentary expose more details regarding the abuse these children suffered? Why weren't there more interviews with members of the justice system who ripped these kids away from their biological family members? Why, why, why?I asked myself why throughout this documentary and to say I was frustrated and annoyed while watching this, is an understatement.

Heartless Movie Lacking Information

This movie is disgusting. Don't rent or buy this, this is just a movie about their friends defending the abusive parents, and trashing the people who stood up for the children. This movie is terrible, excuses were being made for the parents right and left and the children were forgotten. I can't believe they took the time to make this and thought this was a good idea.

Puff Piece

This movie does no justice to the murders of these children. I completely understand the need of people who loved Jenn and Sarah to want to defend them or not believe the horror that happened behind closed doors. But there is too much evidence that wasn't even presented in this film that they were child abusers. Repeatedly reported and never really caught. There is definitely something to be said for the mental health issues that must have plagued these women. But the victims here are throes children. I implore anyone interested in the truth to do more research on this case. And check out the podcast Broken Harts. It dives way deeper and gives a lot more insight as to what was really going on .

Big failings

This film fails in how it allows friends of the Hart family to make excuses for the two Hart women without confronting this behaviour. Instead, many of the talking heads place the blame on social media, or suggest the two Hart women were simply desperate or "insane". There is no evidence to suggest either. There IS evidence to suggest that they were aware of what they planned to do, which was/is murder, and evidence to suggest a pattern of abuse behind closed doors in that family home.

That this film does not confront the making of excuses by the talking head friends of the family is truly infuriating, if not utterly disrespectful to the memory of the six(!) children whose lives were taken from them.

At a loss

I live 1 Mile from where this occurred. I followed this story. Two children never found. Movie said one. But it was two. The little girls calf and foot found the rest of her not. Oldest boy not found and hopefully never was there, and he's living somewhere free of these women. I found movie to attempt to portray them as "so good they took on too much" ...this by many interviews of acquaintances. They had no friends per day. How dare anyone attempt to portray these women other than the monsters that they are...I think honest truth would have been a better choice if content. More interviews with needed with those that were there and saw it.
