It’s Halloween today, and you’d think there’s nothing scarier than watching a grisly, gory horror movie. But how about watching a documentary about an eerie, bizarre or sensational murder that happened in real life?
Netflix and Showmax have a wealth of true crime movies and documentary series that’ll be sure to chill you to the bone.
Here are some of the highlights:
The compelling story of Michael Peterson, a crime novelist accused of killing his wife Kathleen after she was found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their home, and the 16-year judicial battle that followed.
The Staircase was produced by Matthieu Belghiti and produced and directed by Academy-award winner Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. Watch it on Netflix.
