Don't F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer
As teenager Luka Magnotta went on a spree of uploading videos of himself torturing and killing cats (!) the internet reacted by taking things into their own hands and going on a vigilante hunt to find him. Before he was found after fleeing from Canada to Berlin, things... escalate dramatically. You'll be gasping in disbelief throughout this shocking documentary.
You: Season 2
Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley stars alongside Shay Mitchell and Elizabeth Lail in this modern cult hit that skyrocketed to popularity last year. Badgely, formerly Joe Goldberg, moves from New York to Los Angeles and gives himself a new name and identity to match his new city. Enter: his love interest, aptly named Love, and a series of fresh (and needless to say, wild) antics follow.
Next In Fashion
You know him from Netflix's wildly popular Queer Eye, but Tan France is taking his French tuck all the way to his new series, Next In Fashion alongside British it-girl Alexa Chung. The stakes are high in this fashion competition series with $250,000 up for grabs.
Ares is a truly unique addition to Netflix's stellar collection of shows and movies. The Dutch original series centres around a secret student society that's built demonic mysteries. Keep your eyes peeled for this psychological thriller in the new year.
