There are many well known serial killers in American History. However, the busiest murderer was by far Billy Gohl. Known today as "America's most prolific serial killer" Billy Gohl stands alone in body count. As the leader of the Sailors Union of the Pacific through the years 1902 to 1910, Billy Gohl's position made it convenient to murder and dispose of the bodies through a secret trap door.
Wow, what can I say. 15 minutes of the most amateurish narration I have ever heard, saying the same things over and over again with the same 3 photographs and then 40 minutes of "Raw" footage which consists of what looks like some guy walking around in his backyard but we don't know because there is no narration or dialog just random pictures and the "Raw" footage and some captions.
I can't believe that Amazon is charging for what appears to be a high school history project and a poor one at that as a full length documentary.
Do NOT download this film you WILL be disappointed.
WARNING... WARNING... CRAPPY SHOW....I'm shocked that this amateurish video is actually offered on Amazon. I've never seen anything this bad before and I actually feel ripped off. Like the previous reviewer states, "Don't waste your money on this"...and that ain't no lie. 15-18 minutes of bad narration, the same few photos over and over and the last 30-35 minutes is just video being shot in the woods, along a river, and in the town. I tried not to give this show any stars, but unfortunately, I couldn't finish the review unless I clicked at least one star, which is one star too many for this show. The only upside to this is, if they ever have an America's Worst Serial Killer show...then, 5 stars it is!
This is a total rip-off. It sounds like a bad narrator reading a 5th grade report that is poorly written. And the narration lonly lasts a few minutes before there is no narration only slides of the same photos playing over and over again. I did not listen to previous reviews BUT I SHOULD HAVE!! Don't make the same mistake I did - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
This video is only 15 minutes long, and that's about 14 minutes longer than it should have been. Too bad, as the subject could have made an interesting movie. What's criminal is that they charged money for it. And I was stupid enough to pay for it.
I was expecting a 58 minute program, but was treated to 15 minutes of narration (often repeated). Yes, google would have been more effective. Amazon, shame on you. $3 for a 15 minute short, billed as a longer feature. There is far better fare on U-Tube
Don't waste your money. You can look up Billy Gohl on the internet and learn more about him. The "movie" is more of a slide show lasting 15 minutes with narration. Then you get to watch the same 15 minute slide show without the narration. I had never heard of Billy Gohl and was ver interested in this documentary, but was very disappointed when I viewed it. Even the 15 minutes of narration repeats information several times, undoubtably to prolong it. I enjoy true crimes and mysteries, especially serial killers, but this documentary is not worth the purchase price. It views more like an amateur film student project. Again, the internet will provide more satisfying results if you want to learn the story of Billy Gohl (pronounced like ghoul, somewhat ironic).
This is one of the worst dvd's that I have ever purchased. There is a total of 15 minutes of the killer. There is 35 minutes of absolute garbage. Don't waste your money. This is not even worth the cost of shipping. You can get better info of Billy Gohl on the internet. The production of this dvd is very poorly done.
