So, I know a lot of you are really into true crime documentaries and TV movies (as long as they are a decent take on the actual murder case) as much as me and I know that a lot of you are stuck indoors right now, like me, trying to save the planet from this damn Covid-19.

To help take your mind off things I've put together a list of true crime documentaries and movies that I really enjoy which you can watch for free right now on youtube (obviously in some countries there may be a block on some of the videos but it doesn't hurt to try, right?)

And you have my blog to keep you going as well lol!

So grab some munchies, a drink, get the throw, the candles lit and get ready to binge watch on these gems...(let me know what you think of them) Hope you enjoy!!

To Catch A Killer (Amazing TV movie based on the serial killer John Wayne Gacy)

Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story (One of my fave TV movies based on the book of the case)

The Perfect Son? | The Brian Blackwell Story (Docu based on Brian Blackwell, a young man who murdered his parents and left their bodies in the house as he used their money to take his girlfriend on the trip of a lifetime to America)

The Faked Kidnapping: The Shannon Matthews Story (This was a case that gripped England and this docu tells the story of how one mother fooled a nation into thinking her daughter was missing in order to get money. Her daughter was hidden under a bed and drugged by her uncle. Shocking story)

Held Captive For 10 Years (The shocking story of how 3 women were kidnapped and held captive in a house for 10 years)

The Jimmy Savile Story ( I've mentioned him briefly on my blog but for those who don't know the story, this is a great documentary about a man who was considered a ''national treasure'' in the UK only to have been revealed to be one of the worst predatory paedophile's in UK history which was revealed when he died as numerous victims felt safe to come forward. He was a powerful man and had powerful connections and managed to get away with his crimes for decades)

Murdered By My Family (The heartbreaking story of a young girl who was murdered by her family for falling in love with someone they didn't approve of. It's a harrowing story and Banaz went through absolute hell)

The Hunt For The Camden Ripper (This was another story that I covered and this is a really good and informative docu about the case)

The New York Ripper (An interesting docu on the American serial killer, Richard Cottingham)

Manhunt: The Yorkshire Ripper (This is a really good docu about Peter Sutcliffe, the serial killer who stalked the streets of West Yorkshire killing women in the 1970s)
