The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is not an easy docuseries to watch. Not only did the parents not want Netflix to go ahead with this docuseries, but they thought it may hinder the investigation. While this happened back in 2007, fans find one scene in the docuseries absolutely terrifying. Fans claim they will never sleep again after this scene in Netflix's docuseries The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
If you have watched the docuseries, then you would know it's not exactly lighthearted. It has a ton of information on the case, but there are also a lot of reenactments that fans don't particularly love. Especially one scene that Twitter users are going crazy over.
The docuseries basically tells us what we already know about the case, even though there are a ton of twists you may have not seen coming. Theories from everyone involved think Madeleine may have been abducted into an international pedophile ring. The scene that viewers are absolutely terrified of is a reenacted scene where a man with a medical mask enters Madeleine's room, and the scene shows that she may have been drugged and taken this way.
The scene, which is terrifying and creepy on its own, is a couple of minutes long. This leaves viewers super uncomfortable, which most of them talked about on Twitter. You can see some of the tweets below:
