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.

    Even while this show is stunning and horrifying at best I just can't get around about why and how they make Luka Magnotta look smarter then he actually was in this whole series of events. The show is based around a real life thing that happened dealing with a psychopath who films him self killing animals and soon on episode 2 a human. The show was hard to watch at times but in the end it gives a satisfying finish by showing the aftermath of the cop's catching this horrible person. I also love the main bystanders, they did a great job in this show and in the event's that occurred.

    Solid true crime miniseries with an interesting look at the moral grey area in which internet sleuths and true crime enthusiasts fall, though that message does come across as a little tacked on and disingenuous. This also definitely could've been condensed into a two hour or two and a half hour documentary instead of a docu-series, but it wasn't enough to take me out of the intrigue of the case. It was for the most part well framed and thoroughly engaging if still a little ethically questionable, though that ultimately feels like it may have been part of the point of it.

    One of the best crime genre series ive ever seen

    I'm so torn on this show. There were some great messages that were delivered, but also some appalling ones. Firstly, I liked that an online community played at least some part in doing some good in the world and helped in bringing a sick, sadistic murderer to justice. While many would argue the group caused more harm than good, I don't think people like the murderer are ever going to change. Whether the game of cat and mouse took place or not, that was likely going to be his destiny. That said, I do believe the FB group got way too caught up in their own self-righteousness, which resulted in the original target taking his own life because they felt so assured of themselves. That was weirdly and abruptly swept under the rug. But, while Jun Lin's death (RIP you poor soul) *could have* been avoided, I strongly believe that his killer would've eventually committed murder, regardless of whether or not he had been cast into the spotlight. And if there wasn't so much public attention, he could've done this to multiple people and flown under the radar. At least, that was my take but I can also see how others felt differently. I also liked how they referenced serial killers to animal cruelty. This isn't talked about enough but almost every serial killer starts off with animals. More people need to know this in the hopes of catching more serial killers, before they reach that level. On the contrary, I felt they failed miserably at commemorating Jun Lin and his family. They got next-to-no air time and should've been a much, much bigger piece of this documentary. Now, they may not have wanted to be part of the doc, but they focused SO much of their attention on the killer, that you almost forgot about the tragic loss of human life because you were so absorbed in the witch hunt. Jun Lin, by all accounts, sounded like a humble family man and good person with a promising future and this was almost completely left out. I also think that the directors opened up some level of sympathy for the murderer, which really angered me. I don't care if he was bullied and/or a loner. He cruelly tortured and killed animals for fun and then escalated to human massacre. That's all that's important, not that he was a "troubled, bullied kid". They almost tried to give him a cop out for the atrocities he committed. They also showed methods of finding people's location via pictures etc. which should not have been displayed. They literally gave predators tools to stalk other people. Website details could've been blurred/left out entirely to tell the same story. This just made no sense to me. This is a docuseries about STOPPING potential murderers, but then you give a bunch of utilities to track people? Terribly thought out. And lastly, there was this constant theme of feeling like the animals mattered more than Jun Lin. Every animal clip was horrible, but they placed way too much focus on that, again, to some degree, disgracing the Lin family. Giving off this: "That was sad, but the black and white puppy though *insert tears*" theme. This was insightful and terrifying at times, but also very dangerous and insulting. Also, Baudi's final sentence made me want to throw up in disgust. That level of self-righteousness and preachiness made me resent watching the show.

    Gory and horrible topic yet so incredibly fascinating and engaging.
  • Nov 01, 2021
    A chilling and great true crime documentary.

    Невероятная история о поимке шизоида. Надеюсь таких людей будет меньше и меньше.

    So bad I had to make an account on this site just to vent about it. This series takes an interesting true crime occurence which ends up carrying the entire series, because everything else from the narrative thread to the way interviews are presented is bad. Way too many jumpcuts in the interview voices, it feels like I'm listening to a bad YouTube vlog. The first 2 hours of this 3 hour series center around this internet group which really ends up not really doing anything of value to the investigation, and at the end the series has the nerves to criticise the viewer for watching their shoddily presented work.

    Was fine overall, but the ending was dumb as hell
  • May 14, 2021
    It was cut very well with some very good shots. However, it felt very victim-blamey at times. At one point, somebody interviewed talks about how "everybody remembers the killer but not the victim" but there is only one interview with the victim's friend and multiple with different people who knew the killer. There was too much shown in the videos of the kittens, I feel, including a bit where they made someone watch it and filmed their reaction. The end feels really weird, and it ends with blaming the audience for watching it and it's just.... it feels off. The filmmaking is really good, but the actual content of it feels like it's romanticizing the murders. The whole thing is quite uncomfortable and feels disrespectful at times.
