Interview: Jesse Pollack – The Acid King – Available Now!

November 15, 2021 By

I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking to writer/director/journalist Jesse Pollack to talk about his new documentary THE ACID KING. The Acid King, named after the book by the same name (also written by Pollack) follows the case of Ricky Kasso who murdered another teenager in the 80’s.

This was the birth of the media’s obsession with the ‘satanic panic’ and is not only an interesting true crime case, but a horribly misrepresented one. The documentary doesn’t just focus on the case itself but the wider reach and the long lasting ripple effects.
