This week, Dream Deceivers: The Story Behind James Vance vs. Judas Priest. This documentary was produced for PBS in 1992 by director David Van Taylor, and covers the lawsuit brought upon Judas Priest in 1990 by the parents of two boys in Reno who had, the parents claimed, been driven to suicide in 1985 by subliminal messages in the band’s songs.

The film is somewhat grotesque and surreal, on account of the events it documents being themselves so bizarre. The fact that this trial actually happened and was such a big deal has only become more appalling and unbelievable as time passes.
