Netflix viewers 'minds blown' after watching chilling murder documentary Ice Cold
| Last updated
Netflix viewers have been left with their ‘minds blown’ after watching true-crime documentary Ice Cold: Murder, Coffee and Jessica Wongso.
The documentary, which landed on the streaming service last week, centres on the 2016 death of 27-year-old Mirna Salihin, who died after meeting up with her friend Jessica Wongso for a coffee in Jakarta, Indonesia.
It was alleged that Wongso fatally poisoned Salihin - but the film digs deeper into the case and questions whether Wongso was the real culprit after all.
A synopsis from Netflix explains: “What begins as a simple café date among friends ends up with one dead and another behind bars. Now a new documentary, Ice Cold: Murder, Coffee and Jessica Wongso, looks back at the alleged fatal poisoning of 27-year-old Mirna Salihin and the murder trial of her friend Jessica Wongso. Dubbed the ‘cyanide coffee case’ by the Indonesian media circus that seized on the story, it was as sensational as the O.J. Simpson trial in the US, and as controversial. But, the film asks, should Jessica Wongso have been found guilty after all?

“From director Rob Sixsmith (The Raincoat Killer: Chasing a Predator in Korea), Ice Cold: Murder, Coffee and Jessica Wongso reconsiders the shocking story through original interviews with Mirna’s family, the defense and prosecutorial teams, and others close to the case, including a prison interview with Jessica herself. As the documentary unfolds, strange events and potential loopholes emerge in the courtroom proceedings, raising the question: Was justice really served? And if not, then what did happen to Mirna Salihin?”
One person wrote: “Have y'all seen that documentary Ice Cold on Netflix? That s**t was wild!
A third added: “Just watched that Ice Cold documentary, really giving me a headache.”
Someone else said: “But seriously, there’s so many questions after watching this documentary. How’s the police not investigating Mirna’s activities the day she died.”
A fellow viewer added: “Absolutely wild. This whole case is a roller coaster.”
If you fancy checking out what all the fuss is about, Ice Cold: Murder, Coffee and Jessica Wongso is available to stream on Netflix right now.
