Don’t F**k With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer
IMDb rating: 8.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 63%
Netflix dropped Don’t F**k With Cats on us without much ado. It was silent but violent. Quite literally! This three-episode docu-series starts off with a horrifying video that went viral back in 2010. (Warning for fur-parents: this video is difficult to stomach, even though the filmmakers don’t show it in its entirety.)
The viral video sparked outrage, and amateur sleuths formed a Facebook Group, determined to find the perpetrator of the animal abuse that takes place on-camera. As they examine the video frame by frame for clues, little do they know that they are triggering a dangerous game of (ahem) cat-and-mouse with a psychopath on training wheels who is just getting warmed up.
Don’t F**k With Cats is a terrifying real-life mystery that leads to a thrilling chase around the globe. It feels a bit like a modern-day internet-driven version of The Da Vinci Code, where tracking household items down on Amazon, using Street View on Google Maps and the metadata of photos uploaded to social media sites provide the clues. Except the danger is real and not confined to your laptop screen, as the sleuths soon find out! Watch with the lights on!
