Killer Ratings is a new Netflix documentary series. The subject of this documentary is the true story of Brazilian TV host Wallace Souza. He very literally killed for ratings and did so in the most devious way. Read more in our Killer Ratings review here and watch it on Netflix now!

Killer Ratings is a new Netflix documentary series with 7 episodes. After watching episode 1 of Killer Ratings you should be hooked. The story is so crazy that it’s almost impossible to believe that it’s true.

In fact, you probably won’t know what to believe after watching episode 1 on Killer Rating on Netflix.  

Then again, the “star” of this documentary is Brazilian TV host (and state representative), Wallace Souza. He’s both a hero to the public while also being “just” your average greedy and power hungry man. Not exactly a novel or new concept. Still, the way Wallace Souza becomes the leader of a criminal group (and part of several murders) is very sinister!

Sick and crazy but true!

While watching Killer Ratings on Netflix, you will find it almost impossible to believe that this is actually based on a true story. Or actually, it’s not just based on, it is a true story. Then again, if you’ve watched other documentaries or even fictional movies about life in South America, you won’t be too surprised.

You might want to check out Tigers Are Not Afraid which is a feature film based on a real-life issue in Mexico.

Also, Netflix already has several true crime documentary series out already and you don’t really want to believe that any of them could be true.

The craziest one is still Abducted in Plain Sight and compared to that oneKiller Ratings is very believable.

A series about a TV celebrity, murder, political power, and a criminal empire. It tells the true-life story of a Brazilian TV host who who was accused of literally killing for ratings and using his show to cover up the truth.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
