Many explanations are floating around the internet about why true crime is so popular. Some people are trying to solve the mystery, while others are just looking for the thrill and the thing that will make them happy. However, they do so controlled while remaining in their safe environment, aka, in the bedroom.
Actual crime TV and movies are disturbing and creepy, even though they don’t usually belong to the horror category. True crime stories can be even scarier and more disturbing than fiction horror stories. People shouldn’t be afraid of sharks, anacondas, and werewolves as they age. It is those who live among us. According to data, Humans are the second-most dangerous creatures in the world, with the first being… guess who… freakin’ moths.

Usually, the most controversial and high-profile cases make the cut for documentary films. However, this is not always true. Many true crime stories are only discovered after the movie has been made. Because the true crime stories of some are more difficult to tell than the average movie, they turn into TV shows.
We’ve compiled this list for true-horror fans. Some actual crime shows expose the darkest facets of human nature. Sometimes, real-life events are more bizarre and unbelievable than fiction stories.
