Some documentaries aren’t exactly for the faint of heart.

Though many true crime documentaries and docuseries tell a cautionary tale, they can also leave your heart racing and send a chill down your spine. But with so many streaming services to choose from, and several options on each service, it can be hard to narrow down what to watch.

Between financial crimes, mysterious murders, cults and notorious serial killers, here are some of the best true crime documentaries to stream now.

Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey

The rise and fall of Warren Jeffs, the disgraced ex-president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is chronicled in this four-part docuseries. The show includes stories from survivors and former members of the polygamy-practicing group. (The LDS church has said the FLDS has no affiliation with the wider church.) Jeffs married as many as 78 wives, including 24 underage girls, and oversaw the abuse of other women and children before his subsequent arrest and conviction.


LuLaRich is a cautionary tale of one California-based pyramid scheme. This four-part series explores the rise and fall of the infamous multilevel marketing company LuLaRoe, including interviews with the company’s founders and former employees. You’ll never look at colorful leggings the same.

The Way Down

This five-part docuseries follows Gwen Shamblin Lara, founder of the Weigh Down Workshop diet program and the new Christian group The Remnant Fellowship. Shamblin Lara, who died in a plane crash while The Way Down was in post-production, was convinced that God had given her “the key to permanent weight control.”
