There's definitely a type of person out there who loves to dig into the creepiest, grossest, scariest, eeriest stories and expose themselves to all the disturbing details, no matter the consequences. You know, the people who dive down Wikipedia rabbit holes and end up in really weird places, who can't stop reading about the JonBenet Ramsey murder even though it was decades ago, or who always suspect that someone's motives are super sinister because they read about that one time... Fortunately, there are many scary movies out there to offer those people, including these Netflix documentaries, which you should watch with the lights on in order not to be truly terrified.
If you're reading this list, you probably are one of those people who like to be scared, so not to worry, the films below should not disappoint. You will be spooked and shocked by some, creepily engrossed in others, and just flat out terrified of yet others. This list should help you to be prepared and ready to go when morbid curiosity calls, but if you happen to be trying to get some of your more timid or easily frightened friends and family to watch with you, then you might want to make sure it's bright out (maybe early afternoon) and that you've got some super fun comedies cued up to watch afterward.
