Quilt Fairy January 18, 2020 Share January 18, 2020 Quote A twisted criminal's gruesome videos drive a group of amateur online sleuths to launch a risky manhunt that pulls them into a dark underworld. It's hard to believe that there isn't already a thread for this mini-series documentary, but I sure couldn't find one. Has anyone else watched this? Maybe because it dropped right before Christmas, and is the least Christmassy thing you'll ever see. I clicked on this the other night because I had run out of interesting things to watch and it kept coming up in my Netflix recommendations. I'm one of the stupid people like the reviewer on IMDB who posted "I thought it was about cats....." If all you ever see on the Netflix screen is "Don't F**k With Cats" you'll think it's something like People's Stupidest Home Videos, except about cats. And then you find out it's not. I had not heard anything about this story when it happened. I thought the series was mostly excellent, but there are things where it was weak. In particular, Luca Magnotta (what a name he came up with!) must have spent hours and hours on the computer posting all those pictures, creating sock puppet accounts and fake fan sites complete with comments. I think he must have been as heavy into the internet as the group that hunted him down, and I think the show could have spent some time on that. I was distressed at how much of the videos the show aired. I looked away when they were on the screen, and I guess the most gruesome parts were cut, but it was still a bit too much for me. And not much later they show pictures of the dead cats and in the last episode the dead puppy. His mother was in deep denial. It was bizarre to see her interview. What do you think? 1 9 Link to comment
