Providing the audience with a raw look inside the grim details of the Watts murders, the Netflix original crime documentary is perfect for those who bear a keen interest in solved mysteries and piecing puzzle pieces of a highly complicated case.
American Murder is currently occupying a top ten spot in Malta for countless reasons: with various twists and turns, this is not one to be missed!
Revolving around the sudden disappearance of an American mother, Shanann Watts and her two daughters, Celeste and Bella, with another offspring on the way, this documentary supplies the viewers with exclusive body-cam and interrogation room footage, together with actual Facebook posts from the Watts family as well as text messages exchanged between the mother and father, even between Shanann and her friends.
This is displayed right from the beginning of the movie and allows us to be effectively sucked into the family’s personal life. Without giving out any potential spoilers, this has certainly been considered by many as one of the most current chilling views on Netflix.
According to news outlet Junkee, “American Murder is presented in its rawest form with no narration or post-crime analysis, leaving the viewer feeling like they just watched a movie plot instead of a true-crime documentary”, a spot-on description of American Murder.
