I binged The Night Stalker on Netflix last night. That was gross.
Apparently he was captured in August after 13 years! How nice
I tried to start this last night but got distracted a few minutes in. Is it better than The Ripper?
The one about the Yorkshire Ripper? I'm inclined to say yes, but the Yorkshire Ripper is very ingrained in British culture so perhaps had more interest to Brits.
The Night Stalker was pretty new to me, so his depraved crimes were more shocking. Plus it was in California which is instantly a bit more thrilling than Leeds.
All Killa No Filla is essential podcast listening.
I’m still not over The Night Stalkers poor dentistry
but fucking hell what a depraved Cunt
I’ve gone on a serial killer spiral I watched “Longford” and “see No Evil” about the moors murderers the other day.
Night Stalker is fast, furious and trashy as SHIT and I'm loving it
also, god, LA looks like such a DUMP!
Watching The Act (the tv show about Gypsy Blanchard) and I can’t believe they milked 8 episodes out of the story. It would have been great in 5 or 6 episodes at most but this is so fucking slow.
I watched The Night Stalker. Thought they could have condensed it into 2 episodes instead of 4 but it got good once it got going! The bit about the local LA people forming a mob and attacking the killer with a METAL BAT when they recognized him in the street before he was apprehended
I LOVE "This is actually happening", apparently the creator posts out an audio recorder to the participant and then just gets them to talk into it for as long as they need then edits it into a story... My favourite:"What if you staged a dramatic rescue?" You WONT be disappointed
Loved it! the first 3 episodes were great but by the 4th when they capture him it had run out of steam - like any heavily anticipated pursuit this one was all about the foreplay
good PROPAGANDA for the LA police as well
the best bit was the elderly woman on the news hysterically screaming SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE MUST KNOW WHO THIS GUY IS?!?!
New Netflix 4 part documentary on the mysterious death of Elisa Lam at the Cecil Hotel in LA.
Suicide or something more sinister?
Coming in February!
YES! One of my favourite cases
Although them eking out 4 parts is a bit worrying. There’s not all that much to it.
I think I've seen every YouTube there is about Elisa Lam!
I think they are also going to be looking at the hotel’s seedy past, previous notorious residents and deaths.
If dramatisations count I’m enjoying ‘The Serpent’ about Charles Sobhraj at the moment.
I loved The Ripper on Netflix! Felt much less salacious than The Night Stalker for instance and really critical of the police and misogynistic media. I loved that it gave an actual voice to the women who had been survivors or involved in the case, and put very little focus on Sutcliffe himself. I'm a bit scared to sleep tonight now
Oh yes true crime documentaries are my thing. I loved The Ripper, I felt gripped by how they portrayed the hysteria of the time and it was really interesting to see parts of West Yorkshire back then.
Night Stalker was also great, I knew nothing about that case so it was great to see it unfold.
I assume everyone watched The Staircase and The Jinx a few years back? Both crazy!
Weirdly, I just put the Colin Ireland documentary on before I saw this thread had been updated
Actually, five men died so I'm not sure the disco emoji was massively appropriate.
Perched for that Elisa Lam Netflix documentary premiering at midnight!
I really should get into crime podcasts but I can’t find the time.
I found this a bit disappointing TBH.
It was RIDICULOUS. The way they painted the cheap hotel as an actual house of horrors.
All sorts would stay there. Murderers! Prostitutes! Homeless!
*cut to 20 minute diatribe of how bad homelessness is in LA*
Justice for Elisa Lam.
Oh I'm not so perched now.
I'm on episode 2 of the Elisa Lam doc. It's still very scant on details of the Elisa herself and very much finger pointing at the poor Cecil. It was a cheap hotel that a handful of people have committed suicide in over the years, big shock!
And what does the sign say where it says DAILY with the first few letters scrubbed out? It's driving me mad.
The manager of the hotel is fucking scary in her own right - never mind the hotel!
Yeah I’ve done two so far. Not as engaging as I thought it would be.
Was a bit at the ‘foot’ footage though....
I think it used to say MONTHLY.
Also the part with the couple just nonchalantly talking about
DRINKING THE WATER ELISA WAS ROTTING IN FOR WEEKS.
How would you EVER STOP SCREAMING?
I see it now!
The REAL mystery solved at last!
I've just got to this bit. They said the water was brown, sludgy and had a funny smell to it, then in the next breath said they were cleaning their teeth and drinking it. WOT
Agree, the fact they did that was lunacy!
The documentary was definitely over-sensationalised, I mean it was hardly American Horror Story: Hotel.
Too many YouTube clips and soundbites too.
Yes, they could have condensed it into one hour. And it was a bit heavy handed with the conspiracy theories. I had not heard about the story before so it was interesting even though I generally avoid watching unsolved cases because i find them less satisfying.
