Unpacking the pleasure of murder television

Book-ended by two heavy-hitting true crime series, The Jinx and Making a Murderer, 2015 (and ’16) saw a lot of journalists grappling with the draw of these programs and true crime as a genre. These documentaries were cinematic, following those accused of crimes but with hazy details that either led to them being imprisoned possibly wrongly (Steven Avery) or free (Robert Durst). There is an ambiguity with these real-life narratives that allows filmmakers to create engaging documentaries that grapple with inconsistencies, problematic ideologies, and injustices. Both series quickly became rulers for filmmakers as more highbrow-aesthetic true crime films are showing up on Netflix and HBO.

Making a Killing: The Primal Allure of Murder and Scandal

How can a network sustain itself on murder alone? Scott A. Bonn, an associate professor of Criminology at Drew University, argues that murder, specifically serial murders, trigger in us the primal thrill of fear. And watching programs about serial murders on ID allows us to tap into the fear of death in a controlled context. We know the crimes will get resolved. We know the murderer will be found. There is no danger and no real risk. It’s the same sort of Skinner box of fearful pleasure you get from playing The Evil Within or watching The Exorcist too late at night. A momentary rush of adrenaline in response to a perceived, but not actual, threat.

Basic cable thrills are only half of the draw. As The Cut’s Megan
