Documentaries about murder are gaining its popularity, especially on Netflix. The interest of people on watching with this genre flared when the documentary "Making A Murderer" was featured at the online site last December 18, 2015. It is about the shocking attempted murder and sexual assault case of Penny Beernsten, with Steven Avery as the culprit; and later exposed that the victim was also a criminal to Teresa Halbach's murder. It is not surprising to know about people loving these. The documentary has showed good quality, anyway.
On my part, due to insistent public demand and good intentions, I was able to come up with a list of must-see murder flicks in Netflix. It is for you to have a good movie preference.
