    Doc Doc World: Paradise Lost 3 - Purgatory

    In this installment of Doc Doc World, Jordy and Ed discuss the third and final film of the Paradise Lost series, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory(2011).

    In Purgatory, Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky update the case of the West Memphis Three since the release of Paradise Lost 2: Revelations in 2000. Damien Echols' defense team has hired some of the most renowned forensic scientists to collect DNA and other evidence that had never been tested during the 1994 trials in hopes of getting a new trial. The defense teams and supporters of Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jesse Misskelley, have uncovered new details that occurred during the trial that led to guilty verdicts against them.

    Doc Doc World: Paradise Lost 2 - Revelations

    In this installment of Doc Doc World, Jordy and Ed discuss the 2000 documentary Paradise Lost 2: Revelations, the follow-up to the 1996 documentary, Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills.

    Revelations takes place five years after the events depicted in the first film, as Damien Echols, one of the West Memphis Three, who were all found guilty of the child murders in 1994, appeals his lethal injection sentence. It mostly focuses on John Mark Byers, the father of one of the victims who has grown increasingly obsessed with the West Memphis Three, and on a support group who is convinced that the three are innocent. The film was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Nonfiction Special.
