‘Sickened’ Netflix viewers forced to turn off ‘disgusting’ new crime series that exposes one of the biggest scandals in history

Warning: This article contains discussion of child abuse which some readers may find distressing.

Netflix always seem to be throwing out new true crime series for us to become obsessed with, from the story of UK stalker Matthew Hardy in Can I Tell You A Secret? to the case of Danny Casolaro titled American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders.

And a new ‘disgusting’ crime series has ‘sickened’ viewers who switched it off before even getting to the end.

Having landed on Netflix on 15 March, the docuseries exposes one of the biggest scandals in history.

The four episodes have quickly started to trend on the UK streaming site as viewers are warned the series contains ‘depictions of sexual violence and domestic abuse’.

Viewers have been left horrified.

The doc delves into ‘one of France’s biggest judicial tragedies’ as it looks back to a scandal from the 00s.

Potentially a bit of a difficult watch for many, The Outreau Case: A French Nightmare has many viewers on X saying they had to turn it off.

The docuseires explains that between 1995 and 2000 in Outreau, France, children were victim to prolonged sexual abuse with 18 people charged and held.

However, as the trials unfolded in 2004 and 2005, things became even more shocking – with the Netflix doc forcing it back under the spotlight.

The French miscarriage of justice ended up implicating most of the town’s residents with the case.

The synopsis adds: “Between accusation and counter-accusations, the legal machine entangles.”

The doc is making viewers feel sick.

Viewers said on X: “The Outreau Netflix documentary is making me sick to my stomach but the worse part is the ADULTS belittling the information the children gave, considering what we know today and how sick the world is it’s not too hard to believe those accusations are true.”

Another added: “I started watching the Outreau case on Netflix…..let me tell u there is not a single trigger warning that could prepare u for what those kids said happened to them I had to turn that sh*t off MY GOODNESS.”

Others echoed: “Just started watching The Outreau Case: A French Nightmare on Netflix and the sheer depravity of what’s unfolding on my screen has left me speechless.”

One simply put: “This is going to give me nightmares. I am completely in shock and disgusted.”

Many call it a ‘tough watch’ as they say the stories ‘made me sick’.

The Outreau Case: A French Nightmare is now streaming on Netflix.
