Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer is a true crime documentary series created by Mark Lewis and released on Netflix in 2019. The show follows a group of online amateur sleuths, Deanna Thompson, John Green, and Claudette Hamlin, as they investigate the heinous crime committed by a man who uploaded a series of disturbing videos on the internet.
The show starts with Thompson, Green, and Hamlin, who are all members of a group dedicated to finding animal abusers on the internet, being alerted to a video in which a man tortures and kills a few kittens. The group is appalled by the video and decides to track down the person responsible for the abuse. Thus begins the cat and mouse game between the group and the killer, who has now gone from killing cats to humans.
The two things that stand out about Don't F**k With Cats are the intensity of the investigation and the characters who conduct it. The documentary is structured like a thriller, with each episode ramping up the suspense and revealing new pieces of evidence. The investigation is conducted by regular people without any official training or resources, and the methods they use to track down the killer are all based on their knowledge of internet culture and detective work.
Thompson, Green, and Hamlin are the heart of the show, and the documentary does an excellent job of presenting them as a real, multifaceted people with quirks, motivations, and personal lives. The show does not shy away from how the investigation affects them mentally and physically, and it is apparent that they become somewhat obsessed with the case. At several moments, the documentary also explores the ethical dilemma of amateur people investigating and pursuing the killer online without any official help.
One of the things that make the show particularly disturbing is that the killer exhibits all the hallmarks of a narcissist psychopath who revels in the attention he is getting. He is smart, tech-savvy, and manipulative, and he seems to enjoy taunting the sleuths by leaving cryptic clues and engaging them in online chats. The documentary does not shy away from showing some of the gruesome details and depictions of the abuse, and the show may be triggering for some viewers.
As the investigation deepens, the sleuths begin to uncover more information about the killer, who goes by various online names, and they soon realize that they are dealing with something far more sinister than just animal abuse. The documentary shows how the online community begins to split between those who want to find the killer and report him to the authorities and those who want to use the internet as a tool for vigilante justice.
Don't F**k With Cats is a gripping show that delves into the dark and twisted world of the internet, investigating one of the most bizarre and heinous crimes committed in the age of the internet. It is a fascinating and disturbing look into how regular people can use the power of the internet to investigate and bring a criminal to justice. The show is not for the faint of heart, but for those who can bear it, it is a true crime masterpiece that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
