We haven’t seen Reese Witherspoon in a lot of horror lately, so it’s something of a surprise to see her crop up in Devil’s Knott, which will start filming directly.
Devil’s Knott is based on a true story about the so-called West Memphis Three, a group of murderers who killed three eight year old boys and served eighteen years in prison before being let out. And this one will show us the story, which turns out to be a lot more complex than previously believed, with twists, turns, and the occasional dose of mistaken identity.
I’ve never been one for movies about actual serial killers. Feels a little too much like glorifying the disgusting to me. Besides, I prefer my horror movies where evil gets its ass kicked. But aside from that, Reese Witherspoon has never been what you’d call really bad, so there’s a good chance this one will come out nicely.
