It costs you one evening and thousands of nerve cells.

If 5-10 years ago the most popular genres of TV series and films could safely be called superheroes, now this place is firmly occupied by true crime. Realism has won: millions of viewers are glued to their TV screens to find out how the next story about a maniac who existed years ago will end.

And in some cases, as in “Hands off the cats!” it all starts with a rather moving story about animal activists trying to bring someone to justice for cruelty to animals. But soon the social drama turns into a full-fledged blockbuster with mysterious motorcyclists, Interpol and human victims.

‘The Serpent’ initially seems like a comedy about tourists, but the spectacular Thai landscapes and aesthetics of retro films from the distant 1970s are fraught with a lot of crime. Adding to the “spice” factor is the fact that the miniseries’ main character is a serial killer who exudes a terrifying charm.

Elizabeth Olsen also captivates in the Netflix project “Love and Death”, where you cannot even believe how a good-natured housewife, played by the “Avengers” star, immediately turns into a bloodthirsty enemy, eager to take revenge on her neighbor . for her devastated family.

“Secrets of a Billionaire” is a series that was released absolutely by accident. Millionaire Robert Durst was suspected of three murders, but was acquitted of two of them and the third was said to have been committed in self-defense. After his release, the businessman gave an interview to director Andrew Jarecki, after which the filmmaker found new evidence of his guilt.

Finally, ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ is perhaps the most heartbreaking miniseries in the true crime genre, as viewers refuse to believe until the last moment that the charismatic teen played by Evan Peters actually killed nearly twenty people.
