Editorial Reviews

Paradise Lost 2: Revelations revisits the 1994 Arkansas murder of three 8-year-old boys and the three teenagers convicted of the crime. A follow up to Paradise Lost, Revelations features new interviews with the convicted men, as well as with the original judge and police investigators. While focusing on advocates who believe the young men are innocent Revelations also includes footage of the stepfather of one of the victims, who some suspect might be involved in the crime.

A disturbing and moving documentary, Revelations is investigative journalism and advocacy at its best. This case, as with the OJ Simpson and Jon Benet Ramsy murder trials, for better or worse, will remain in the spotlight for years to come as an example of America's judicial system gone astray.

Paradise Lost introduced us to what may be the most frightening onscreen villain in years : a biased judicial system. 24 jury members (2 separate trials) that had made up their minds before they had even set foot into the court room. And like any good villain, it has to slaughter a few innocents to be really scary. PL2:Revelations shows us the aftermath of said slaughter: The seemingly destroyed lives of Jessie Misskelly, Jason Baldwin, and Damien Echols (Even though they seem to have come to terms with their fate. That doesn't mean we should). Just like a good horror sequel, it shows us that the monster is even bigger and more powerful than previously guessed. The prejudice towards the 3 innocents spreads a lot further than the original trial courtroom. We have some heroes along the way in the name of the Free The West Memphis 3 organization, and seemingly at the center of it all, John Mark Byers, one of the parents of the 3 murdered children, and the mysterious death of his wife. Just like the first, this film moves, touches, infuriates, frustrates, and compels everyone I know who has come in contact with it. It is a testament to how powerful a film camera can truly be, and regardless of your opinion on whether or not the 3 are innocent, it is impossible to walk away from this film and forget it. This, like the first, is one of those film experiences that will haunt you for a long, long time. Don't miss it.

"Paradise Lost 2: Revelations," a documentary film by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, is a sequel to their earlier documentary "Paradise Lost." These films investigate the aftermath a a horrific triple child murder and the conviction of three young men who continue to maintain their innocence.
PL2 picks up where the first film left off. We meet the three convicted young men--Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, all older and still imprisoned. Damien, the only one of the three to receive the death penalty, is appealing his conviction, and his life-and-death situation gives PL2 a particular power and urgency.
There is extensive interview footage with many of the individuals involved in the case: the original judge, Jessie's defense attorney, and more. Especially poignant is the footage with the family members of the convicted. But as in the first film, the most indelible character is undoubtedly the controversial John Mark Byers, the angry stepfather of one of the murder victims. One issue PL2 explores is the question whether Byers was actually involved in the actual murders.
Also fascinating is the footage featuring members of the support group of people who believe that Echols, Baldwin, and Misskelley were all unfairly convicted. The young men have become known as the "West Memphis Three" to their supporters, and PL2 tells about the origins of the WM3 Web site.
I will warn potential viewers that this film contains graphic photographs of the murdered children, one of whom was sexually mutilated. Overall, PL2 is a gripping and, in my opinion, important film. It's more than just a real-life human drama. The film raises compelling issues about crime, justice, punishment, prejudice, truth, and the impact of the media. Highly recommended.

I have been a West Memphis Three supporter since 1999. It is of upmost importance that everyone who sees this documentary and is shocked, interested, or angry, pass the word on! The more people who know about it, the better chance of getting Damien, Jason, & Jessie new trials. Not everyone is convinced of their innocence (I, after lots of research, am. Everyone should should study up & come to their own conclusions. All the info you need can be found at [the website]) but EVERYONE will agree that this trial was a sham. An 18 year old boy was sent to death row based on nothing but someone else's word & a bag of black t-shirts. The fact that this has been allowed to happen in this country in the 20th century is both embarrasing & horrifying. Evidence was lost, not followed up on, and the trial took place in a community where all three were tried and convicted before they ever set foot in a courtroom. If it happened to them, it could happen to you, or your child, your sister/brother, friend, etc.

After watching the first film, there were some questions regarding the trial I had that I was hoping the sequel would answer. It didn't. If anything, the sequel just created more questions. I will list them:

1.) Alibis- In the first film, all 3 defendants claimed to have alibis for the night of the murder, but we learned very little about them. I thought to myself, "why didn't the defense play this card in court?" The testimony of the alibis themselves should have been enough to exonerate the defendants. I was hoping that "Paradise Lost 2" would address the issue, but it didn't. So I looked into the matter, and found out that Damien and Jessie's lawyers tried, but the alibis fell apart in court. Damian tried to claim that he was visiting a relative for the night of the murder, but under cross-examination, it turned out to be a different night. Jessie's alibi tried to say that he was at a wrestling tournament that night, but the receipt for the tournament was for a different night. Jason didn't even try. All of this makes an impact on how one views the case, doesn't it? Now lack of alibis does not in itself establish guilt, but the filmmakers' failure to include this part of the trial in the first movie or to discuss the issue in the second, casts doubt on the "miscarriage of justice" angle.

2.) Damien Echols- I didn't think that the previous film was complete in exploring Damien's psychological history. For instance, is there any evidence of psychological disorders or sociopathic tendencies. These are the kinds of questions that need to be explored in a documentary about someone accused of murder, and I was hoping the sequel would address the issue. It didn't, and in fact further confused it.
