If you love or are weirdly fascinated by graphic documentaries about murder, then Netflix has you covered.
But the streaming service’s latest true crime installment isn’t about wrongly accused convicts, like “Making a Murderer” and “The Confession Tapes,” or “innocent” parties who may be actually be guilty, like “The Staircase.” It’s about convicted murderers who committed the crimes they’re accused of, and they’re ready to talk.
Appropriately titled “I Am a Killer,” the British docuseries is a collaboration between Netflix, A+E Networks U.K., and Sky Vision Productions. Composed of 10 hour-long episodes, each installment will focus on a different prisoner who has been convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death.
This isn’t the first time Netflix has added murderous confessions to its library. The streaming service currently has the streaming rights to the docuseries “Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer,” and one of its most critically acclaimed new shows of last year, David Fincher’s “Mindhunter,” focused exclusively on re-enacting confessions and interviews from actual serial killers.
Morbid documentaries are a winning combination for Netflix, and this latest one promises to be as especially creepy.
“I Am a Killer” premieres August 3 on Netflix.
