Feel free to add to this list :)
At this point I’ve watch the majority of these. Child of rage, Just Melvin, Just Evil and An Interview with a Cannibal stick out the most for me so far.
Just Melvin, Just Evil was like nothing I’ve ever seen before because all the victims and the abuser were still alive. The interviewer/ documentary maker was part of the family so everyone opened up to him in the most candid way that I’ve ever seen in a documentary. The only one that didn’t open up was the abuser, who basically denied everything ‘til his death. The shit he did was horrific, yet some people in the family still love him and go visit him. It’s an interesting and heartbreaking window into human behavior. It’s extremely triggering, I had to pause it a few times, so proceed with caution.
