To say I was shook would be such an understatement.
If you’re anything like me, you live for true crime documentaries; but after watching them, you curse your curiosity and hide under the sheets.
Naturally, I found myself watching Netflix’s Night Stalker documentary about the notorious Richard Ramirez.
Here are a few moments that scared the crap out of me — you’re welcome:
When X-rays of Ramirez’s teeth are shown.
When one almost-victim came face-to-face with Ramirez.
When recordings of Ramirez talking about Satan are played throughout different parts of the documentary.
When Ramirez shows off the pentagram on his hand in court.
When you realize that kids were involved.
When the library worker describes Ramirez’s stench.
When the first sketch of Ramirez is drawn.
When a couple finds footprints in their flower bed after waking up from a loud noise.
When Ramirez is first arrested and he looks out of the cop car with his head wrapped up.
When the detectives tell Ramirez that they’re placing him in the same cell where they once held the Hillside Strangler.
When Ramirez is in the lineup and a 6-year-old identifies him.
When Ramirez revealed that he followed the work of Detective Salerno and studied other serial killers.
When women swoon over Ramirez after he is caught and in court.
When a relative of one of the victims encounters a sobbing Ramirez supporter outside of the courtroom.
When people describe the dark lifelessness in Ramirez’s eyes.
When Ramirez said that he was “beyond good and evil.”
When Ramirez’s upbringing is briefly explained.
When Ramirez asks the detectives if they are going to go to his execution.
Oh, and then he admits to some detectives that he committed other murders in Northern California.
