Page 1 of 11

If you are ready to meet some of the real-life monsters, step right in as we take a look at 11 best serial killer documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015.

Our fascination with serial killers may be explained on several levels, but the bottom line is that we are scared of them. These aren’t some folktales designed to frighten children and make them eat their broccoli, these are real life stories of actual people and their unfortunate victims. These documentaries offer an amazing insight into the heads of some of the cruelest serial killers that ever lived. All of them felt the compelling need to take human lives, as science would have us believe, but what is more terrifying is the fact that they usually live among us, seemingly having normal, everyday lives like the rest of us. Their ability to hide in a plain sight and reconcile their outward appearances of a loving family people with their true nature of savage killers is both fascinating and alarming. If Richard Kuklinski could do it for 30 years, who else among our neighbors could be harboring a secret life?
