True Crime is easily one of the most popular genres on Netflix right now, but there are definitely some shows from that category on the streaming service that are more haunting than others. Most recently, the Luka Magnotta true crime docu-series was added to Netflix, and it's shaking viewers to their core.

If you haven't already heard of the show, it's called Don't F*** With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer, and it tells the story of Canada's own Luka Magnotta, a seriously disturbed individual who's currently locked up at Quebec's Archambault Institute.
Magnotta had a troubled childhood, and as he got older, he only became more violent. At one point, the Scarborough native posted to the internet a video of him violently torturing and killing two kittens, which is how people found out about him.
Almost instantly, an online manhunt began, consisting of people from all over the world working together to try to identify the mysterious cat killer. Unfortunately, it wasn't long before Magnotta struck again, but this time, things were much worse.
The former adult entertainment actor uploaded a video of him brutally killing and dismembering foreign exchange student Lin Jun. Shortly afterwards, he mailed Jun's body parts to different political parties and schools across the country.
The Netflix docu-series definitely contains graphic content, although it's mostly focused on telling the story of those who banded together online in hopes of catching Magnotta.
The show just hit the streaming service this morning, but people have already begun to check it out and can't get over how shaken up they are.
"Just watched Don’t f*ck with a cat [sic] on Netflix. A gripping insight into the mind of a psychotic monster," one person tweeted.
"I watched Don't F**k With Cats on Netflix and holy sh*t dude. What a f*cking ride. I was actually shaken up by it," commented another viewer.
The three-episode series is available now for streaming on Netflix, although you may not want to watch it alone if you're particularly sensitive to graphic content.
