True crime documentaries such as The John Wayne Gacy Tapes
Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes
Also by Joe Berlinger, The Ted Bundy Tapes is the predecessor of The John Wayne Gacy Tapes. So while the two documentaries are about different serial killers, chances are that if you’re interested in Gacy, you’ll also be inclined to learn more about Bundy. In The Ted Bundy Tapesmore than 100 hours of interviews with Bundy are used to create a haunting documentary that includes interviews and archive footage of the killer.
devil in disguise
Even though this show can’t be streamed on Netflix, devil in disguise is obviously the next best thing The John Wayne Gacy Tapes. This six-part docuseries delves deep into the case, examining it from every possible angle and featuring several key interviews with law enforcement officials and journalists involved in the case while it was still under investigation. It’s a great follow-up to the Netflix doc and is currently streaming on Peacock.
The Clown and the Candyman
This short docuseries is about a pretty crazy possible connection between two different killers, John Wayne Gacy and Dean Corll. Although Gacy was in Chicago and Corll in Houston, they may have been connected through a network of pedophiles that stretched across the country and included prominent members of our society with affiliates in some of our most trusted institutions. The Clown and the Candyman is available on Discovery+ and you can purchase it through digital retailers like iTunes and Google Play.
In the criminal mind
This Netflix docuseries examines the criminal mind through psychological machinations. Each episode dives into the behind the scenes of notorious criminals, with commentary from some of the world’s leading experts who create cognitive profiles to help audiences understand and recognize the psychology that creates these types of criminals.
As mentioned in the title, catch killer is another Netflix docuseries where each episode takes viewers behind the investigations into some of the most prolific serial killer cases, including the Green River Killer, Aileen Wuornos, the Happy Face Killer and more.
Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer
night hunter is another Netflix docuseries that should appeal to anyone interested in learning more about serial killers. This time it’s all about the Night Stalker, aka Ricardo “Richard” Ramirez, an American serial killer, serial rapist, kidnapper, child molester and burglar active in California between June 1984 and August 1985.
It might be cheating to include it mind hunter since the series is by David Fincher not a documentary, but Gacy is teased in the second season. It seemed like the show was ready to introduce him in Season 3, but alas mind hunter has not returned for a third season.
