Hey, y’all. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for the weekly roundup of the true crime I watched last week with a short recap and a quick score and review. Let’s get into it. What did the Killer Queen watch last week?
During her testimony, Lauren reveals the decades of manipulation she endured from Keith – who promised her a baby if she overcame her “ethical breach” – and how her unwavering devotion to the NXIVM leader led her down a dark and painful path.HBO
I’m back this week to yet again tell you how much I don’t like this season of The Vow. Did Keith Raniere pay HBO to make a propaganda documentary for him?
Anyway, this week I had to listen to a deep dive into Lauren Salzman’s gross relationship with Keith. If I didn’t have a true crime blog, I probably would have quit watching this by now. But I’m suffering through.
Convicted stalkers and survivors share harrowing accounts of harassment, abuse and other crimes in this documentary series.Netflix
I AM A STALKER is one of the most disturbing true crime documentaries I’ve ever seen. Murderers are scary, but I can wrap my head around a crime of passion or someone who just snapped or someone who wanted revenge. I can’t understand the psychology that drives someone to stalk.
The most unnerving part of this series is that the criminals featured give to-camera interviews. Listening to them try and justify their actions is so unsettling. Some of them look right into the camera and say they don’t believe that what they were doing was stalking.
Go watch this one if you haven’t already.
This documentary reveals how investigators proved ICU nurse Charles Cullen was killing patients-and how close he came to getting away with murder.Netflix
I hated this documentary. I can’t give you a good explanation other than that it was so boring. Like so boring. I couldn’t pay attention to it, and I ended up turning it off about halfway through.
If you liked The Good Nurse, you might like it, but I don’t really recommend it.
This documentary tells the harrowing story of a woman trying to use Alabama’s Stand Your Ground law after killing a man she says brutally attacked her.Netflix
I really liked this documentary. Probably part of the reason I enjoyed it is because I’m from north Alabama like Brittany Smith. I know some of these accents might be difficult to understand for non-Alabamians but it was like coming home to me.
My biggest complaint is that it’s only 40 minutes. I wondered why it was so short.
And I actually went to high school with one of the talking heads-Ashley Remkus, a journalist at AL.com.
If you can watch this and not be infuriated, I just don’t know what to tell you.
Did you watch any of these? Let me know what you think and what you have recently watched in the comments!
