If 'The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann' Had You Hooked, You'll Love This True-Crime Film

If 'The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann' Had You Hooked, You'll Love This True-Crime Film

If, like the rest of the nation, you've found yourself sucked in by The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann on Netflix, then you might want to watch Captive For 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Story.

The one-off documentary follows the story of school girl Jaycee, who was snatched by a convicted sex offender at the tender age of 11. While most people would assume the worst, Jaycee's story is particularly interesting as she was found alive... 18 years later.

In her own words, Jaycee describes the heinous abuse she suffered during the 18 year period following her abduction, until she was eventually freed.

The story is up there with the most shocking, grizzly and harrowing there is, and is sure to evoke a mixed bag of emotions from anyone brave enough to watch.

In fact, the hour-long documentary featured on a list released by Netflix, advising viewers on the most interesting true crime documentaries and films available to stream on the site.

The extensive list was recommended for people who also enjoyed watching Abducted in Plain Sight, which I think we can all agree is the most bizarre and twisted pieces of television we've ever experienced.

The list of recommendations included Shadow of Truth, Casting Jonbenet, Evil Genius, The Confession Tapes, The Keepers, Wild Wild Country and Captive for 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Story. However, since the list was tweeted, a host of new documentaries have been released on the streaming service, including The Ted Bundy Tapes, Dirty John The Dirty Truth and of course, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann has been steeped in controversy since it aired, with the Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, refusing to appear in the eight-part documentary over fears it could hinder the Metropolitan Police's ongoing investigation into her disappearance 12 years ago.
