Hollywood frequently turns to the world’s most prolific serial killers for inspiration, feeding pop culture’s fascination with these real-life villains. In addition to award-winning biopics like 2003’s Monster, you might be surprised to discover that some of the most disturbing moments and characters on shows like American Horror Story actually went down in real life. Once you make your way through all of Netflix’s serial killer documentaries, take a look at the many movies and TV shows they’ve inspired.
