We recently added Wisconsin Death Trip to the DBRL collection. The film was originally released in 1999, but played at the 2011 True False Film Festival because director James Marsh was honored with the True Vision Award this year. The movie is based around the 1973 book of the same name which we also have in the DBRL collection. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
Based on authentic historical records, this gives a chilling account of the disaster that befell one small town in Wisconsin in the 1890′s. Black River Falls seems gripped by a peculiar madness, and its weekly newspaper is full of bizarre stories of violent death and wildly eccentric behavior. As epidemics decimate the infant population and the local economy collapses, the townsfolk are haunted by ghosts, possessed by demons, and terrorized by a cocaine-snorting, window-smashing madwoman.
