Serial killer movies are mystery, thriller and slasher movies in which more than one murder is committed. Serial killers often commit murders that are unconnected, with no fundamental purpose. However, some serial killers commit interrelated murders to convey a specific message, to get revenge, or simply to satisfy specific feelings.
Serial killers who murder by following a goal and logic are often used more in movies. Finding out who the killer is, rescuing the next victim, and catching the killer creates an action that the audience loves. Movies about such killers are more interesting because it is more difficult to find rational serial killers. Netflix also includes such movies. What are Netflix’s best serial killer movies of 2022?
