It is not all factual
26 October 2001 | by sleekchica05See all my reviews

I am from Lancaster County, PA. I live in the same school district that some of the actual people attended at one time. I knew Laurie Show and Tabitha Buck and Lawrence Yunkin, and Lisa Michelle Lambert. I am sory but this movie upset me greatly. Half of the details are incorrect and make the other veiwers of this movie believe inaccurate details. As I watched I would point out to my sister what was accurate and inaccurate. I have been following the story all 10 years and I was very upset about the lies in the movie.
