5. The Ripper

Nearly 100 years after Jack the Ripper terrorized London’s White Chapel district, a new Ripper started stalking women in England. This time mainly in Yorkshire, but he also struck in Manchester. From 1975-1980 Peter Sutcliffe killed at least 13 women (there may be more authorities don’t know about) and attacked at least seven. Some of the survivors appear in the documentary, which shows how the police allowed (unwittingly) Sutcliffe to kill for years longer than he should have because of mistakes they made early on.

6. Who Killed Malcolm X?

In 1966, three men —Talmadge Hayer or Thomas Hagan (a.k.a Mujahid Abdul Halim), Norman Butler (a.k.a Muhammad Abdul Aziz) and Thomas Johnson (a.k.a Khalil Islam) — were convicted of murdering Malcolm X on Feb. 21, 1965. However, historian and tour guide Abdur-Rahman Muhammad spent 30 years investigating Malcolm X’s assassination and believes two of the three men convicted are actually innocent, which is detailed in this documentary.

7.  Wild Wild Country

This is another you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it kind of documentary because it’s just, as Newsweek put it, “so outrageous.”

It’s the true story about a sex cult that moved from India to Oregon in a quest to found a utopia. It was led by Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, with the help of his secretary, Ma Anand Sheela. It documents the power grabs, attempted murder, conspiracy and poisoning of thousands of Oregonians, which was the first bioterror attack in the United States and became a national scandal.
