30 Netflix-able True Crime Documentaries You’ll Obsess Over

The thrilling crimes and creepy mysteries of television have their place, but for those who can handle them, true crime documentaries cannot be beat.

Truly, there’s nothing more shocking, disturbing, and mystifying than the real things people do to cover up their crimes. This list gets a little intense, so we must warn you: turn back now if you’re faint of heart.

We guarantee you’ll obsess over these 30 true crime documentaries available on Netflix now. If you have the stomach for them, that is.

‘The pulling power of true-crime documentaries like Death On The Staircase is a mystery in itself’

Sounds like an outline plot for a classic crime drama. This is not fiction, nor is it proven fact, but it is what is generally believed to be the true-crime narrative true-crime narrative of the murder in 1974 of the Lucan family nanny, Sandra Rivett, by Lord “Lucky” Lucan, and his attempted dispatch of his wife, Veronica. Lucan’s disappearance has been an enduring source of speculation, films, documentaries and literature (not to mention jokes) since he vanished hours after the murder of Sandra Rivett.

With the news of Lady Veronica Lucan’s death last week (as yet unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious) there’s been a predictable rekindling of theories and wild imaginings about Lucan’s subsequent fate. Four decades on, the mystery remains unsolved but the intrigue surrounding the story is as potent as ever.

Our appetite for true-life crime stories is growing exponentially. Over the

10 Real-Life Horror Documentaries That Will Scare The Sh*t Out Of You This Halloween

Calling all ghouls and goblins: It’s the most spooktastic time of the year and — as Halloween approaches slowly but surely — now is as good a time as any to start binge-watching scary documentaries on Netflix. Of course, throughout the month of October, most television networks have all the best Halloween staples on standby; I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t spent the better part of many October weekends flipping between Friday the 13thHalloween, and A Nightmare on Elm Street (all while covering my head with a blanket, of course). This year, though, the insane list of terrifying documentaries on Netflix is the way to go if you want to be truly scared sh*tless.

As is always the case when it comes to Netflix, there is so much to choose from this Halloween. Whether you’re into true crime documentaries or specials that look into supernatural phenomena,

TV Guy: A sendup of true-crime documentaries – Times Herald

How big is Netflix? Big enough to lampoon its own success.

Its streaming series “Making a Murderer” was catnip to binge viewers. Now “American Vandal” (TV-MA), streaming today, offers a silly but assured send-up of the true-crime documentary genre.

The crime at the center of this series is both grave and ridiculous. We learn that somebody spray-painted crude images of male genitalia on 27 cars belonging to a high school’s faculty.

School authorities suspect Dylan Maxwell, a notorious prankster and would-be YouTube star of the “Jackass” variety with a history of vandalism, obnoxious behavior and overall bad taste.

Among the inside jokes of this comedy is the fact that Dylan, a delusional social media star with a few thousand followers, is played by Jimmy Tatro, creator of his own YouTube channel with millions of followers.

Based on one eyewitness account, Dylan is “convicted” by school officials and expelled.

The Five Creepiest Documentaries on Netflix About Murder

There’s a certain voyeuristic pleasure that comes with watching true crime TV. No matter how one tries to justify consumption of the genre, there’s always going to be something morbid about enjoying the dissection of actual crimes with actual victims.

But there’s a reason that people say forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest. And when you’re in a particular, gruesome mood, there is no substitute for a solid documentary about real-life carnage. Inverse rounded up the best true crime flicks available to stream on Netflix for when you’ve got that itch that only the most lurid non-fiction can scratch.

1. Interview with a Serial Killer

Interview with a Serial Killer is a powerful, no-frills documentary that consists largely of what the title advertises- a lengthy interview with Arthur Shawcross, also known as the Genesee River Killer, who murdered at least 14 victims before
