​Netflix Releases Massive List Of True Crime Docs To Binge On

Lately we've all developed an undeniable addiction to the world of true crime programmes - because what's more fascinating than murder, police cover-ups and, erm, staircases?

One of the latest shows to grip the attention of Netflix viewers across the globe is Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, a four-part series focusing on the murders the infamous serial killer was convicted of, the media frenzy that surrounded his trials and his infamously charismatic way of charming women.

Tying in with the 30th anniversary of Bundy's execution in 1989, the 'cinematic self-portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy' gives us 'a unique look inside the mind of an infamous serial killer' - and, naturally, we were all hooked as soon as it dropped on the streaming service on 24 January, meaning that most of us had finished it by the end of the evening.

So what should we be watching now?

Netflix has stepped in to make some suggestions for us - advising anyone who enjoyed the Ted Bundy doc or the new show about the ill-fated Fyre festival to turn their attention to Abducted in Plain Sight.

And if you've seen all three of those, Netflix reckons it also has plenty up more its sleeve to 'keep you busy for a while', recommending Shadow of Truth, Casting Jonbenet, Evil Genius, The Confession Tapes, The Keepers, Wild Wild Country and Captive for 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Story.

Aw, thanks Netflix, pal - always looking out for us, aren't you?

Then, of course, don't forget about the two hits from not too long ago: Making a Murderer and The Staircase - although if you've not seen either of them yet, what the hell have you been talking about with people?!
