I think one thing we can all agree on is that Netflix Canada does documentaries really well. If you haven't watched Abducted In Plain Sight, the documentary is about a man who manipulates a family and kidnaps their daughter twice. He's so manipulative that the parents don't end up pressing charges on him. The documentary made me so mad that I told everyone I know to watch it. 

Well, lucky for us and not lucky for the people in the documentary, sometimes messed up stories like this get filmed and documented for our pleasure. I really wish this wasn't the case, but there are just as messed up documentaries on Netflix Canada as Abducted In Plain Sight. Thank you, Netflix. 

So if you're in the mood to turn off The Office for the millionth time and branch out, definitely watch one of these documentaries. I promise you won't be disappointed. 

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

I really do think that no party could ever be worse than Fyre Festival. After watching this documentary, I wanted to go back in time and not watch it so I could watch it for the first time. If you're the one person on earth who hasn't watched it, please, watch it. Fyre Festival is now known as one of the biggest scams of all time, and Billy McFarland, co-creator is now in jail for everything he did. But to get more into depth on the craziness that happened, you can watch this on Netflix.

The Keepers

Now, this is a documentary series, so you'll need a little bit more time for this one. But that doesn't matter, because I guarantee you'll become addicted. A nun named Sister Cathy is murdered, and her death is still unanswered. However, through a ton of years and unfortunately, through one of her former students getting abused, the case reopened. Netflix really takes you through all of the abuse, conspiracies, and everything in between to keep you on your toes.

Captive for 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Story 

This documentary is confusing because the police had so many chances to rescue Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was held captive for 18 years after being kidnapped while walking to school in 1991. Her kidnapper, who know serves so many life sentences in jail, was visited by police numerous times but they never checked the back shed, even after complaints from neighbours. Her story is definitely one for the books, as it's amazing how after 18 years, she was rescued.

Audrie and Daisy 

I remember watching Audrie and Daisy for the first time and feeling sick to my stomach. This story is really about the bad side of social media, and what it can do to someone. It's also a story about sexual abuse, and how that experience can really be detrimental to someone's mental health. The confusing part of this story is how the girl's towns chose sides between the girls and the boys, ultimately leading to suicide. If you want more in-depth information on the situation, I'd recommend watching. But it's not for the faint of heart.

The Staircase 

I remember watching this docu-series and really trying to figure out what was going on because it was kind of eerie. A man is accused of killing his wife by pushing her down the stairs, but there is so much more to the story than just that. Turns out, his friend died the exact same way a few years before that. The Staircase takes you through a journey of thinking Michael Peterson is guilty, and not guilty. But you better watch to find out for yourself!

Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox at one point was one of the least trusted people in America, even though she wasn't even living here. People still go back and fourth on if she killed her roommate in Italy in 2007. Well, this Netflix documentary brings you on that journey and it includes interviews with Amanda. Whether you believe her or not, the story is fascinating. Amanda is pretty famous for doing cartwheels after her roommate's death, so there's that too.
