Summary
On December 23, 1985, Raymond Belknap and James Vance—two young men in Reno, Nevada—put shotguns to their heads after drinking and smoking marijuana as they listened to the rock group Judas Priest. Belknap shot himself fatally, while Vance was grossly disfigured. Their parents, claiming that subliminal messages in the heavy metal band's songs mesmerized the boys into their bizarre suicide pact, filed suit against CBS Records. Centered around this trial, Dream Deceivers explores this American intersection of Religion, Music, Addiction, and Family Psychology through interviews with Vance (who later died in 1988 from a medication overdose), his and Belknap's parents, other Reno 'metalheads,' and members of Judas Priest.Reviews: "Riveting!" - The New York Times, "Grade: A" - Entertainment Weekly, "Destined to cause a stir. Not just the band, but the parents, the kids, and maybe even the judicial system are all on trial before the camera. Even-handed, sympathetic, but ultimately heartbreaking." - The Hollywood Reporter, "Not for the faint of heart." - Vogue, "A monumental showdown between irreconcilable generations. A nightmare glimpse into America's spiritual drought and the way people fill that void with diametrically opposed faiths." - Interview Magazine, 'Did heavy metal music influence the teenagers to try to kill themselves? Or was it their dysfunctional families, childhood, and generally aimless, hopeless lives? To its credit, the film offers no pat answers. Recommended for public and academic libraries.' - Library Journal, 'The material is so overpowering, and the videotape creates such painful intimacy... Dream Deceivers will rivet the attention, as it presents a terrible story of mixed signals and wasted lives.' - New York Times. “Extremely well edited. The primary individuals tell the story (or what they know of it) as footage of the trial is intermixed with interviews. Pacing, scripted narration, and interviews will rivet the viewer's attention... Both public libraries and schools will want to have this title available... It shows what can go wrong, and is a sobering learning experience for all viewers. This is an excellent documentary." - Video Rating Guide for Libraries
