Movies and Series Like Unsolved Mysteries: Let’s be honest, once you start watching shows and movies based on true crime there is no going back. It is so addictive just to watch the series which includes gruesome murders and serious happenings. I’m not being a psychopath but still, it is all addictive.

We like to watch how the murders take place and how it took place in real, we continuously think about what was going through the mind of a killer and how did he/she chose the victims. It’s just so fascinating. Watching comedy shows while eating dinner is old school now and fans of true crime prefer to eat while watching these shows. Some shows which are based on true crime are Mindhunter ( absolute favorite ) and recently released Unsolved Mysteries.
