People Can't Sleep After Watching Netflix's Newest True-Crime
Netflix's latest true crime Don't F*ck With Cats - based on the sick crimes of killer Luka Magnotta and the online community who sought to hunt him down - was always going to stir a reaction, but it turns out it's actually causing people to lose sleep.
The bizarrely-titled three-part documentary, which landed on the streaming service on Wednesday 18th December, details the sick crimes of Canadian killer Luka Magnotta.
Magnotta filmed himself torturing animals and posted them online, and what ensued was a manhunt to find him, lead by the people of the Internet.
Directed by Mark Lewis (Silk Road: Drugs, Death And The Dark Web), Don't F*ck With Cats had all the makings of a chilling watch, but now viewers are complaining they're actually losing sleep over it.
"i just watched dont fuck with cats and now i have to sleep with the light on," tweeted one viewer.
"was watching dont fuck with cats and now im scared to go to sleep," said another.
"So I started watching dont f*ck with cats on Netflix and I'm truly scared. It is so wild and so disturbing. I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep tonight," added a third.
"Dare you to try sleeping after watching Don't F*ck with Cats," penned a fourth.
"Dont fuck with cats" on netflix is a must watch, super creepy and intense, it will be on my mind as I try to sleep tonight for sure," shared another.
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," says Netflix of the series.
So there you have it: maybe don't watch this on a school night when you need to get some shut-eye.
