What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Devil's Knot re-tells the story of the West Memphis Three (previously covered in four documentaries -- the Paradise Lost trilogy and West of Memphis), which centers on brutal murder of three young boys, followed by a controversial act of justice that may have ruined three more boys' lives. While no violent acts take place onscreen, viewers will see some blood and disturbing images (particularly the bodies of the three dead boys, which are briefly shown naked and tied up). Strong language is sparse but includes one use of "f--k," as well as "goddamn" and "hell." There are very brief references to drinking, smoking, and drugs. This movie -- which is told with an overall hopelessness about a world in which this kind of thing can happen -- could help people unfamiliar with the story find their way to the documentaries, which tell the story much better and in greater depth.
