[ # ] Menedez: Blood Brothers is bloody good
June 11th, 2017 under Lifetime

There is a new interest in the murders of Jose (Benito Martinez) and Kitty Menedez (Courtney Love), tonight at 8p Lifetime gives there version of the Menedez: Blood Brothers.

On August 20, 1989, Lyle (Nico Tortorella) and Erik Menedez (Myko Oliver) shot their parents to death. Their father was a huge Hollywood producer, so their murders dominated the newscasts. No one knew who did it until Erik confessed to his psychiatrist and his brother threatened him. Then we knew that the brothers murdered their parents in cold blood.

Why? Was the next question. Did they do it for money? Their trial was covered by the news and they alleged that their abusive father molested them, especially Erik. That was something they focused on during their first trial and that one ended in a mistrial. They were tried again and this time they were both sentenced to life for killing their parents.

But what happened before that sentencing is what tonight’s movie delves into. While the movies from the ’90s covered their lives leading up to the murders, this one focuses more on their time afterwards. It also focuses more on the sexual abuse than the others. There is another twist in this one that was not seen before. One that makes it more interesting.

As with each new telemovie, you learn a little more about what happened. Making them all intriguing. This one is definitely the most intriguing of them all. Whether you have been interested the case before or this is the first time, this telling will keep you captivated from the beginning to the end.
