This new, disturbing true-crime documentary on Netflix has everybody talking
Don't F*ck With Cats
Looking for a new (and thrilling) true-crime show to watch on Netflix? The new docu-series, Don’t F*ck With Cats, is definitely worth a watch
I watched Don’t F*ck With Cats last night and I can’t stop thinking about it. Some parts I watched through my fingers. Other parts I had to close my eyes completely and mute the volume. Yet still, I couldn’t stop watching.
The new, true-crime docu-series consists of three episodes, all of which are about an hour-long each.
Disturbing and horrifying
Marked as suitable for audiences over 18, the Netflix Original series documents the disturbing (sometimes horrifying) actions of killer Luka Magnotta.
The Canadian man, who has a deep fascination with movies such as Leonardo DiCaprio’s Catch Me If You Can and Christian Bale’s American Psycho, filmed himself committing heinous crimes (first with kittens, then escalating to humans), before posting them online.
As the episodes unfold, we see how ordinary people (whose evidence was ignored by the police) managed to track him down through a clever, FBI-like Facebook group.
While it’s definitely the most shocking thing I’ve watched in years, I was somehow glued to it. If you’re in any way interested in true crime or thrillers, there’s no doubt that Don’t F*ck With Cats is a must-watch.
Trigger warning: the reason I closed my eyes and muted the volume for some scenes is because Don’t F*ck With Cats shows some clips of animal cruelty. For an idea of what’s in store, watch the trailer below:

Still not sure whether to give it a go? See how Twitter reacted to the new docu-series. While most people are as mindblown as I am, others are highlighting the importance of remembering the victim – not the killer.

Guys Don’t F*ck With Cats is riveting but just a head’s up—I’m a pretty seasoned true crime consumer and still found parts of this too disturbing to watch. I ended up skipping through the scenes that showed video clips or described them and still had a nightmare about it. ?

You know, #DontFckWithCats really introduced people to the horror that Luka Magnotta was, but the end of the film makes a good point; Jun Lin deserves more than his attacker. A lot more. I can only hope his family is doing well through this again. #RememberJunLin pic.twitter.com/pqo4vDkQNA
