For those not in the know, a husband & wife team-up to kidnap, sexually abuse and murder young girls to quickly be known as the "Schoolgirl Killers" and here it's terribly retold with melodramatic inaccuracies and flat-lining dialogue. Collins is effectively vile and intimidating as Bernardo while Prepon does well with a script that is painfully reformatted to make the cold-hearted bitch seem sympathetic. It might be terribly crafted and holds back on the explicitly graphic sex & violence but still manages to disturb to great effect.
In the end, it's still a pretty shitty movie that seems to have no idea what really happened.
1½ not very Merry Christmas' out of 5
