If crime documentaries and scaring yourself silly is your thing, then take note.
Netflix viewers are saying they're 'too scared to sleep' after watching a new creepy true crime doc about stalkers.
I Am A Stalker dropped on the streaming platform over the weekend and people are already glued to it.
From exes to co-workers and online stalkers, the show looks inside the minds of eight perpetrators - who each explain how they became so obsessed with their victims.
Meanwhile, viewers hear from the victims themselves, who recount their terrifying experiences and recall how they brought their stalkers to justice.
When it released in the US, I Am A Stalker became one of the most watched crime shows in the country.
And many viewers have commented on the shocking lack of awareness and remorse from some of the stalkers in the documentary.
"In I Am A Stalker convicted stalkers tell us, in their own chilling words, how love turned into deadly obsession in face first, captivating in-depth interviews," a synopsis reads.
"The perpetrators will tell their story from their perspective in a thought-provoking, and emotionally confrontational style that also features first person testimony from their courageous victims who survived these shocking crimes."
While I Am A Stalker was first released on Crime + Investigation back in October 2022, people are only just discovering the show.
One person wrote on LADbible's Netflix Bangers group: "Have you all seen ‘I am a Stalker’ on Netflix? It’s terrifying and I’m only on episode 2."
While another said: "Just finished watching I am a stalker on Netflix. Really eye opening but in a way that I won’t be sleeping tonight."
And a third added: "I’m watching I am a Stalker on Netflix and it sooo scary how delusional these stalkers are despite their actions landing them behind bars."
A fourth wrote: "This I Am A Stalker programme on Netflix is really bloody scary.
I feel panicky just watching it."
And another added: "I am a stalker on netflix is crazy. People are crazy because, how can you not see how crazy you are????"
"Currently watching the series “I Am A Stalker” on Netflix. Equal parts fascinating and terrifying," wrote one viewer.
We'd definitely recommend not watching this one alone!
I Am A Stalker is currently available to stream on Netflix.
