Netflix true crime which left US viewers 'too scared to sleep' is finally dropping in UK this weekend

This should settle the true crime itch

While Netflix might be full of recommendations for the Harlan Coben collection right now, you might be after something a little more real.

Sure, the new Fool Me Once is great for a binge but it doesn’t quite scratch that true crime itch.

But a series is set to drop on the streaming site that should definitely satisfy the true crime-heads.

It was released in the US back in 2022 and will finally land on UK Netflix this Sunday (7 January).

Watch the trailer here:

The true crime show reportedly left US viewers ‘too scared to sleep’ when they watched it, as it is rather haunting.

It was actually released for us British viewers on Crime + Investigation back in October 2022 but is a Netflix production.

Titled I Am a Stalker, the documentary series quite literally is about, well, real-life stalkers.

The synopsis reads: “Convicted stalkers tell the programme, in their own chilling words, how love turned into a deadly obsession in face first, captivating in-depth interviews.”

During the documentary, convicted stalkers discuss their crimes on camera and some of them explain how their love turned into a deep obsession.

It features stalkers and survivors.

When it was originally released in the US, Netflix warned viewers to expect ‘harrowing accounts of harassment, abuse and other crimes’ not just from stalkers but also from their survivors.

Another description for the true crime hit reads: “The results of stalking range from the annoying (persistently receiving loads of email or letters) to the intrusive (being secretly watched or followed) to the most severe (kidnapping and/or murder).”

I Am a Stalker became one of the most watched crime series in the US when it was initially launched on Netflix and even put viewers off dating.


One wrote on X: “Y’all, I’m watching #IAmAStalker on Netflix and y’all…I’m totally A-OK with never dating ever again. I’m good.”

Another put: “One of the craziest show you’ll watch on #Netflix some people aren’t aware of what “stalking” is! Stalking is punishable under the law.”

Others simply called the show ‘crazy’ and ‘mind-blowing’.

One posted: “On the 2nd episode of #iAmAStalker (I have to take this sh*t in small doses), and this man is god-damn WILD.”

While one user even wrote: “I certainly can’t be the only one who watches #IAmAStalker on #Netflix before bed, and therefore will be too scared to sleep?"

I Am a Stalker lands on Netflix UK this Sunday 7 January.
