The twisting, turning, stranger-than-fiction true story of the Brobergs, a naive, church-going Idaho family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter.


A couple of my friends demanded that FH and I sit down and watch this since we love true crime shows (like every other person). I had never heard of this story before and I resisted the urge to look it up because I wanted to watch this with unbiased eyes. 

This is the true story of the Brobergs who were s small-town family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic, pedo who had designs on their young daughter. 



Wow. Just wow. It was like a bad accident that you can't help but fixate on. WHAT was that family thinking. Yes, yes, he was charming and cute and a fellow Christian family-man. OKAY. UhHuh. NO one in that family thought it was weird how FIXATED he was on that little girl? WHAT?

*SPOILER ALERT/rant*And the parents all being in love with him and cheating on each other with him? WHAT!? The insanity! And NO one called the cops for days?????? You have got to be kidding me!!!! That dude didn't have to work at all to kidnap her TWICE. JUST wow. That FBI dude should have taken the kids away from those morons. SURE they fell for his charms and whatever....but idiots. Pure idiots. And that poor girl. She was SO convinced that the fate of the world rested on her shoulders. That poor thing. *END of spoiler/rant*

Sorry. This was for sure a hard review to write without giving away spoilers. It is for sure something you need to watch and discuss. I've been telling all my friends to watch it. I want...NO need to discuss this. Even FH was all OMG!

So good. So sad. So...insane. Watch it! It is good. 5 stars.

Probably way too intense for me, but once in a while I watch these to remind myself to not get complacent in this world. Poor girl!
