Critics Consensus

Don't F**k With Cats offers an intriguing tale, but questionable intent and muddled storytelling make it a hard sell for anyone but true crime completists.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

Extremely well-directed by Mark Lewis, who follows the story chronologically in exacting detail, we are taken on a bell dive into the evil netherworld of the internet.

The best thing about [it] is that the makers seem to at least acknowledge this. The worst thing is that they went ahead and made it anyway.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

With its deconstruction of the psyche of an internet killer, Don't F**k with Cats is one of the most compelling true crime docuseries that has been produced by Netflix to date.

Dec 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Don't F**k With Cats makes one uncomfortable from the very beginning. [Full Review in Spanish]

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Whatever intentions they had and however noble they were, [It] ends up embodying the worst of true crime's more voyeuristic and complicit elements, even as it tries to point the finger at the audience it so desperately wanted to entertain.

Mar 27, 2020 | Full Review…

An impressive documentary series that plays between true crime and action thriller. [Full review in Spanish].

Feb 17, 2020 | Full Review…

It's about a tale that may have been prevented, a life of a young man saved, wrapped in a package that's almost too warped to believe is real. Watch Don't F**k With Cats with caution, but watch it none the less.

Dec 31, 2019 | Full Review…

The miniseries is a dystopia in which geeks succeed and others do not, and being right comforts all misfortune. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Don't F**k with Cats struggles to convey a cohesive message, painting an inconsistent portrait of its central vigilantes and Magnotta.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

In short, f**k this show.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

A horrifying true story about the utility (or lack thereof) of social media when it comes to searching for a dangerous guy throughout cyberspace. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A fascinating look at how ordinary people can root out a killer using the same internet tools that are available to everyone.

Audience Reviews for Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer: Limited Series

    We found the story to be a fascinating tale of a group of ragtag internet sleuths and a clearly disturbed young person. While we understood the title would likely lead us to some graphic animal abuse, we still both had to cover our eyes and stick our fingers in our ears when they (sometimes repeatedly) showed the disturbing videos. But still a great story with many twists and turns.

    I've seen this docuseries a total of 3 times now, since I keep recommending it, and keep ending up watching it with new people on the regular. What an incredibly gripping, intense, and intriguingly made series! It just keeps on getting more and more disturbing by the minute, and it will have you hooked after like, 20 minutes tops. Psychologically heavy because of the very dark and twisted story, but I'd recommend this to anyone, any day of the week.

    I never gave 5 stars to anything or to any show but.... but, this time I must give 10 stars not only 5!
  • Apr 13, 2020
    I thought it would be more gory. They don't show anything which is good. It makes it watchable. The story is just sad. But interesting

    While everything relating to the investigations done by the police in the case was very interesting and fascinating with logic, the focus on the original group of activists become quite annoying and the dots connect for them using huge stretches of imagination.

    Don't F**k with Cats is absolutely spine chilling, twisted and suspenseful in all the right ways. This limited docu-series chronicles the efforts of an online Facebook group as they hunt down an internet killer who starts with cats and gradually works his way to other pursuits. The twisted life of Luka Magnotta is also explored in this crime saga. A fair warning to those who simply cannot stomach scenes of animal abuse (most of us)-this may not be the show for you!

    I don't buy this at all. All the cheesy plot convenience smacks of a made up story presented as true crime in order to get maximum attention and views just like the Chris Watts murders. It's insulting to the intelligence, frankly.

    damn..this documentary is amazing..
  • Feb 25, 2020
    This documentary was interesting, but I felt it was too long. The narrator (the first woman who spoke and was interviewed) ruined the documentary with her annoying voice and descriptions. The timeline of events could have been summarized in a two-hour movie instead of three episodes. If you are bored or like to watch crime documentaries, you can watch this one to past the time.

    I was right about to quit watching this documentary since I was sick of watching Deanna and John Green stalk somebody for like 16 months, but the parts where they focused on the Montreal police was a breath of fresh air. Most annoying part of the entire documentary was at the very end where Deanna said that everybody watching shouldn't influence people online and that they should turn their devices off or whatever. Even though she dedicated 16 months to stalking a guy, admitted herself that she was giving Luka the attention he wanted, and of course went on this documentary which is giving Luka even more fame. In fact now that I think about it they didn't do a single thing to help find him or even give evidence.
