Directors Dan Jones and Jesse P. Pollack dig beneath the lurid books and scare tactic media coverage to tell the definitive true story of Ricky Kasso, an American teenager who murdered his friend, Gary Lauwers, in an alleged "Satanic sacrifice" during the summer of 1984 in Long Island New York. That crime, and the public and media treatment of the event, helped birth the brief but dangerous 'satanic panic' of mass hysteria which gripped the United States in the 1980s and 90s. Based on the best-selling book The Acid King, by Jesse P. Pollack and published by Simon & Schuster. This Special Edition Blu-ray features hours of additional bonus content that takes you deeper into the film and the true crime case that inspired it.
