The Netflix YouTube account shared the official trailer today and announced it will be on the streaming platform on December 18.
The three-part documentary series is led by a group of people telling their stories about how they discovered Magnotta online from the horrid videos he posted on social media. The first video was titled, "1 boy 2 kittens."
In the trailer, they called it "the worst video I've ever seen" and said that "it needs to be stopped immediately," which is exactly what they did on their hunt for Magnotta.
Although they're just amateurs, they were determined to find him but had no idea where in the world he was located. They said, "People went nuts, so we started looking. He could've been anywhere on the planet."
Based on clues from the background in his video including "a door handle and electrical receptacles," they were sure Magnotta lived in North America but then they said they heard voices that sounded Russian.
Magnotta shocked the internet when he posted a second video titled "1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick" showing him murdering and dismembering a Chinese international student.
The web sleuths said that "these are the things, the telltale sign of somebody that's going to become a serial killer."
According to the trailer, it became an international manhunt in cities including Toronto, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, Berlin, and London.
The 37-year-old murderer is actually a Canadian and was born in Scarborough, Ontario. He fled Canada in 2012 and was found in Berlin, Germany a month later.
He was convicted of first-degree murder in December 2014 for the death of Lin Jun in May 2012.
Magnotta is currently serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.
After all, he broke one of the unwritten rules in "the seedy underbelly of the internet" which states not to mess with cats.
