A new Netflix documentary details the sick crimes of Canadian killer Luka Magnotta, who filmed himself torturing animals and posted them online, and the Internet community who went on a manhunt to find him.
The bizarrely titled Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer is arriving on the streaming platform on 18th December - and it's story is one of the most messed up we've seen.
Produced by Raw Television, the docuseries examines the sick reign of Magnotta, who first achieved notoriety when he posted a video of himself cruelly killing two kittens in 2010.
He later posted another video, which showed a kitten being eaten alive by a Burnese python, which he grossly titled 'Python Christmas'.
Later, Magnotta moved on to murder and dismemberment Chinese student Jun Lin, who he met on a gay Internet dating site, which he videoed and also posted on the Internet.
Sick Magnotta then packaged up his body parts and sent them to various schools and politicians in his native Vancouver.
What occurred next was an International manhunt, as the then-30-year-old fled Canada.
Magnotta was eventually caught by police in an Internet cafe in Berlin, where he was looking at photos of himself on Interpol.
"A twisted criminal's gruesome videos drive a group of amateur online sleuths to launch a risky manhunt that pulls them into a dark underworlds," reads the official synopsis for there series, directed by Mark Lewis (Silk Road: Drugs, Death And The Dark Web).
Lewis, who is also working on a documentary about Peter Sutcliffe, otherwise known as the Yorkshire Ripper, spoke to Deadline about the true crime.
"What is so mind-blowing for me about this documentary series is that it plays out like a real thriller, with twists and turns that no-one will see coming, a cast of internet heroes whose resourcefulness will have you cheering from the sidelines, and a murderer whose true identity will have you gasping when he is finally unmasked," he told the publication.
Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer hits Netflix on 18th December 2019.
