Tiger King has pulled a nation together when it is on lockdown, much like the Queen's speech, one of Netflix's best documentaries ever.
After three husbands, two cults, and one tragic deceased spouse under a septic tank, we have successfully completed the Joe Exotic experience. (But, if rumors are to be believed, a fresh episode will air the following week.)
You will undoubtedly seek to fill the Exotic-shaped vacuum in your life, and if odd is what you're looking for, we have it. If you enjoyed Tiger King, you might enjoy some of the craziest documentaries listed below.

Documentaries That Are As Absurd As Tiger King

Don't F**k With Cats

Don't F**k with Cats is the only real crime documentaryin recent memory that be simultaneously so contemporary and so local.
A team of internet sleuths attempt to identify an online animal abuser and murderer while conducting a manhunt online.
The film illustrates how prevalent a crime done far away can be when broadcast on the internet. It is primarily focused on Deanna Thompson's endeavors, who solves the majority of the mystery while sitting in her living room with a laptop.
Spoiler alert: Joe Exotic is not as insane as Luka Magnotta.
Where to stream: Netflix.

How To Fix A Drug Scandal

The first episodeof the true crime docuseries follows chemist Sonja Farak, an Amherst lab technician who tested evidence in drug cases and frequently testified in court.
While doing her duties, Farak, who struggled with drug addiction, used meth, amphetamines, LSD, and other narcotics.
Some she stole directly from the evidence boxes, while others she took from the controlled chemicals she was examining.
Yet, the series doesn't simply focus on Farak; it also explores the deception of Massachusetts chemist Annie Dookhan.
Dookhan, who worked at the Boston drug lab Hinton, was in court at roughly the same time for tampering with evidence.
She lied about testing the evidence, but we find out via the documentary series that she didn't actually do it.

Voyeur

Because they didn't have access to carefully curated lists of documentaries, people in the 1960s were bored.
The motelier Gerald Foos, who brought and customized an entire motel for the sole purpose of spying on visitors, is an example of what they did as opposed to this. Yes, this man would climb into the vests that were above the rooms and observe his clients from above.
Creepy. Interviewing Foos and displaying his, huh, escapades against a very cute model of the motel, the documentary portrays Foos as a social journalist who considers his motel as a "laboratory" and includes footage of him discussing his views.
Where to stream: Netflix.

Bikram - Yogi, Guru, Predator

This can be especially intriguing for you if Bhagavan "Doc" Antle's plot in Tiger King was your favorite. This documentary explores the inner workings of Bikram Choudhury, the creator of Bikram yoga.
The narrative focuses on a man who exploited all parts of his power and saw himself as a "cross between Mother Teresa and Howard Stern." That just kind of feels like you need to practice your down dog if you want to join a cult.
Where to stream: Netflix.

Evil Genius

Evil Genius and the case itself have slipped under the true-crime radar despite being one of the most strange in modern American history.
The documentary is a must-see for any fans of the genre since it contains so many unexpected turns and unresolved threads that it will leave you dizzy.
The program explores the history and motivations of people involved, concentrating mostly on the character of Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, whose deliberate and methodical actions make her an intriguing subject of study.
It's worth looking into this case for its novelty alone, especially considering how much more attention Netflix's other docu-series like Wild Wild Country receive.
Where to stream: Netflix.

Casting JonBenet

Perhaps one of the most well-known American criminal mysteries is the disappearance of JonBenet. Yet, Casting JonBenet sheds additional information on the case by emulating Kate Plays Christine's format and tracing the actors' mental preparations for playing the victim.
The documentary uses a lot of conspiracy theoriesand suppositions, just like the JonBenet case had. Every actor putting on an audition has a unique perspective on the crime and feelings related to it.
Where to stream: Netflix.

The Jinx

Few documentaries have the impact on society as The Jinx by Andrew Jarecki did in 2015.
The movie dives headfirst into the investigation of a string of killings involving real estate magnate Robert Durnst and manages to catch him in the act. Even apart from the instances, he is a disturbing subject, sporting brown doe-eyed contact lenses to appear empathetic.
I won't give away the twist because this is a no-spoiler zone, but boy is it a major one.
Where to stream:Amazon Prime and HBO.

Wormwood

The king of true crime documentaries is Errol Morris. His most recent television series, Wormwood, is based on the life of a scientist from the United States who may have unintentionally taken part in MKUltra.
The doctor investigates into his death, which was initially assumed to be a suicide but investigations have since cast doubt on this idea. He tells the story through his son, Eric Olson.
The video, disturbingly, draws its information on a 1953 CIA assassination manual, which states: “The most efficient accident, in simple assassination, is a fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface.”
Where to stream: Netflix.

Welcome To Leith

Leith, North Dakota, had 16 residents as of May 2012. Craig Cobb, a White Nationalist, then arrived in the area. Cobb planned to build a Neo-Nazi paradise by buying 12 parcels of property.
The documentary depicts the year-long battle to take control of the town and install Cobb's men into the local administration, along with footage of Cobb's supporters intimidating and threatening the locals.
Where to stream: Amazon Prime

The Keepers

A seven-part documentary series called The Keepers looks into the mysterious death of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a nun and teacher at a nearby high school.
A classic whodunnit mystery, the movie covers decades of institutional child abuse and brutality, going much further and deeper than your standard true crime doc.
“The priests were the authority. What ever they said to do, you did it”, one respondent gave the unsettling remark.
Where to stream: Netflix.

Abducted In Plain Sight

Wait until you watch this if you thought Tiger King became crazier with each each episode.
Abducted In Plain Sight is hard documentary to watch without becoming utterly upset - as a helpless family suddenly tumble into more absurd and horrible scenarios as time goes by.
In order to save the planet, a man nearly 30 years her senior nurtured and brainwashed Jan Broberg, whose narrative is told in the documentary.
There is a spin-off (of sorts) in the works, so make sure you do since it's one of those things that must be seen to be believed.
Where to stream: Netflix.

Three Identical Strangers

Unbelievable insight into the life of a set of triplets who were split up at birth as part of an odd scientific experiment and later reunited as adults.
What begins as a happy reunion swiftly turns into a grim and terrifying examination of the ways in which their lives were planned and manufactured for a parenting sociological experiment.
Where to stream: Netflix.
