Documentary Review: Beware The Slenderman (Sky Crime)

A 2016 HBO documentary film directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky, currently on Sky Crime, Beware the Slenderman is a documentary about the 2014 true-crime story of when two 12-year old girls (Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier) attempted to murder one of their friends, stabbing her 19 times, in an attempt to appease Slenderman, a fictional monster from a horror website.

Documentary Review: The Jinx – The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (Sky Crime)

The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst is a 2015 HBO documentary about New York real estate heir Robert Durst, who, after being acquitted for one murder on the grounds of self-defence, is accused of murdering two others: his first wife, who disappeared in New York in 1982, and his longtime friend, who was killed in California in 2000. He has, however, yet to be convicted of either.

The documentary is directed by Andrew Jarecki who previously directed the Ryan Gosling-led 2010 film All Good Things which was inspired by Durst’s biography. After the film’s release, Durst professed admiration for the film and telephoned Jarecki, offering to be interviewed. Despite having never previously cooperated with any journalist, Durst sat with Jarecki for more than 20 hours over several years. The documentary then gained widespread exposure when Durst was arrested on first-degree murder charges, the day before its finale aired.
