People are comparing Netflix's new true crime docuseries to Making A Murderer
People are comparing Netflix's new true crime docuseries The Confession Killer to Making A Murderer.
The five-part series examines the story of Henry Lee Lucas who, in the early '80s, confessed to hundreds of murderers - bringing closure to unsolved cases and grieving families.
Even with no direct evidence linking Lucas to the crime scenes, he stunned authorities with his ability to sketch victims' portraits while citing brutal details of each attack.
Yet journalists and attorneys found impossibilities in Lucas’ timeline, and DNA testing started to contradict his internationally-reported claims.
The Confession Killer explores how the man once called America’s most prolific serial killer was really a complex figure entangled in a flawed justice system.
And after it was released on Friday, Netflix users have taken to social media to praise the series - and compare to many of the streaming service's other high-profile documentaries, like Making a Murderer and The Confession Tapes.
If you’re into making a murderer and serial killer shows, watch the confession killer on netflix. You won’t be sorry.

Watching The Confession Killer on Netflix, this is as crazy as Making A Murderer or Evil Genius, but the cognitive dissonance on display in this, especially from the rotten police is something else. Quality Documentary. #TheConfessionKiller

If you're a fan of mini-series documentaries like Making a Murderer, The Keepers, Evil Genius, The Devil Next Door, check out The Confession Killer. It's on par with these others. pic.twitter.com/3uQsCl7gzd

This documentary series about Henry Lee Lucas is the most insane show I’ve watched since Abducted in Plain Sight. #TheConfessionKiller

I am not kidding when I say that #TheConfessionKiller has had me shouting and swearing at my television. I knew absolutely nothing about this story beforehand, and honestly that’s the best way to watch it because.... shit! pic.twitter.com/Wr1Horw5G3
