Netflix True-Crime Movie Is Leaving Viewers Feeling Sick

Netflix's true-crime movie Believe Me: The Abduction of Lisa McVey is leaving viewers feeling 'sickened'.

The film tells the story of a teenage girl from Florida who was kidnapped while cycling home from work, and assaulted in 1984 by a serial killer.

Lisa McVey was held hostage for 26 hours and repeatedly raped by Bobby Joe Long, leaving her the only one of his victims to survive.

In one scene, McVey, played by Katie Douglas, tries to explain her traumatic experience to two female police officers, but it's made clear they don't believe anything she tells them.

Viewers were stunned to see how the 17-year-old endured the horrific attack, detailing how she used reverse psychology to escape him.

She also mentally gathered as much information as she could, already planning to use it as evidence to lead to his arrest.

But although she is strong enough to gather clues and break free, things are made even worse for her when she isn't believed by anyone, except for one detective.

The movie was made back in 2018, but it has been recently added to the streaming service, with viewers sharing their thoughts on social media.

Long killed at least 10 women in the Tampa Bay Area in Florida over an eight-month period.

He was found guilty of eight murders, as well as McVey's kidnapping, and sentenced to death for his crimes. He was executed in 2019.

McVey went on to work in the same police department that with her help, apprehended and arrested Long.
