It’s a scary world out there. Sometimes it’s better to observe the evils lurking in the shadows from your couch, shielded with a big bowl of tangy Cool Ranch Funritos.

New True Crime Documentaries Coming to Netflix 2018

If you’ve scrolled through Netflix lately, then you’ve likely spotted more than a few high-profile true crime documentaries. The streaming giant’s (and our own) obsession with twisted, real-life cases began with the fervour that surrounded Making a Murderer‘s 2015 debut, and hasn’t shown any signs of dying down. Since then, we’ve gotten more entries into the true crime genre in the form of haunting addicting docuseries like The Keepers and Wild Wild Country, and even American Vandal‘s true crime spoof.

To keep us binging weekend after weekend, Netflix has gone one step further and secured two more documentary series for us all to be simultaneously fascinated and terrified by.

10 Websites About True Crime For People Who Are Out Of New Books, Podcasts, And Documentaries

In recent years, there has been a rise in true crime content across platforms, but even the explosion of new TV shows, books, and podcasts can’t seem to keep up with many people’s insatiable interest in the macabre.

Netflix’s brand new true crime documentaries look absolutely …

We’ve found your next addictions.

It’s clear that Netflix isn’t dwelling on their success because the online streaming giant has announced huge plans to diversify and broaden their programming. Earlier this afternoon, they announced plans to create over 100 features that are originating in 16 different countries.

Netflix has unveiled 10 new European projects including seven original series and the return of some beloved shows like Dark, Money Heist, GLOW and countless others.

This being said, the company has really cemented its position as the home of great documentaries in recent years and their  next two features are shaping up to be incredibly gripping.

The Staircase is set to be released this summer but before that, we’re going to get the four-part original docuseries Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist which will be released on May 11th.

Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade is making The Staircase and the story will definitely appeal to fans

The Best True Crime Documentaries on Netflix (2018)

More than 50 years after the publishing of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, a pioneering work of the true crime genre, we’re experiencing boom in the popularity of true crime, especially in film and television. From Making a Murderer to O.J.: Made in America to The Jinx (not to mention such unfortunate productions as The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey), the past couple years could be considered a Golden Age for telling real-life stories of misery. Netflix in particular has made a name for itself in this niche, acquiring a strong slate of indie docs and producing some of their own, higher-profile works. Still, this is always a tricky genre to navigate: for every noble award-winner like The Thin Blue Line, a lurid alternative is likely to pop up in your recommendations. (Please, Netflix, don’t make us watch Josef Fritzl: Story of a Monster.)

The reason you’re seeing so many celebrity documentaries might surprise you

Documentaries are setting the scene for success.

The docuseries genre has catapulted in popularity over recent years with mega celebrities like Beyonce and Lady Gaga giving viewers behind-the-scenes access to their personal lives. According to Business Insider, 73% of Netflix subscribers — which means more than 68 million people — watched at least one documentary in 2016.

But why are these shows so popular? Robert Thompson, professor of popular culture at Syracuse University, tells Moneyish, “We are increasingly in this fragmented world, and these types of shows are appealing to a much more fragmented environment. These things don’t need 30 million viewers; they can get a much smaller number and (still) be a big hit.”

Thompson also shares that by big stars making themselves so available, you don’t need to be satisfied with just paparazzi photos, because they’re completely opening themselves up here. And although it may seem somewhat voyeuristic, that’s all

All the Cult Related Documentaries, Films and TV Shows You Should Be Watching

It’s safe to say that cults are having a bit of a moment in popular culture right now. That is thanks, in part, to the influx of miniseries, true crime documentaries and real life cult mysteries entering the cultural consciousness.

In 2016, there was Emma Cline’s debut novel, The Girls, a fictionalized account of the Manson Family, told from the perspective of the women in the cult. And now there’s even more of an influx of cult content, with the upcoming film The Haunting of Sharon Tate, in which Hilary Duff will play the actress and victim of murder at the hands of Charles Manson; Charlie Says,
