Three New JFK Conspiracy Documentaries

Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's


Get ready for an onslaught of films and documentaries about John F. Kennedy and his assassination. The remainder off this year will be filled with plenty of JFK shows on the small screen. 2013 is the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy and along with the commemorations are many, many new documentaries, some of which focus on the conspiracy theories associated with the events in Dallas on November 22, 1963.


I Shot JFK: The Shocking Truth is one of three new documentaries that compliment each other and lay the groundwork for a conspiracy that involved the Mob, the CIA, and the FBI. James E. Files confessed to being the shooter in the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza. Many eyewitnesses on that fateful day said they saw and heard a shot coming from that area.


Confessions from The Grassy Knoll: The Shocking Truth is another documentary in this series that re-examines the assassination and the confessions of those who claim to be part of a conspiracy to kill the president.


Spooks, Hoods, & JFK: The Shocking Truth is the third in this set of conspiracy documentaries. It focuses on Chauncey Holt who says he worked deep cover for the CIA during the Cold War. He claims the government had a hand in the assassination.

These three The Shocking Truth documentaries piece together several aspects of the assassination and its aftermath. They lay out specifics about the planning and implementation of the assassination and give conspiracy theorists more ammunition (no pun intended). 


You will read and see many sides to the president and his assassination this year. Many new revelations about the man and his family are coming to light. This fall we are going to have a plethora of JFK films coming out. November 22, 1963 was an important and dark day in the history of the country. For those of us who lived at that time, the memories are indelible. We all have our own ideas of what happened in Dallas. There are plenty of theories out there and hundreds of books fill the libraries. The official Warren Commission Report has flaws, which adds to the conspiracy theorists.

If you cannot get your fill of JFK conspiracy theories, check out these three documentaries. And remember, there are plenty more films about this event coming shortly. The assassination of President Kennedy still holds the attention of Americans. It was a pivotal event in the country’s history and it is thought of as the end of American innocence. There are many, many theories as to what happened in Dallas on that day. Some are completely far fetched. Some are somewhat plausible. And some maintain that Lee Harvey Oswald acted completely alone. Whatever your own ideas, you will be bombarded by plenty others (on DVD and on TV) in the next month.
