Why Hollywood Glamorizes True Crime Stories

From documentaries to series to podcasts, it seems like the True Crime genre has taken a big hit in the eyes of many audiences. For some watching the untold stories of these crimes has become some sort of an obsession. In fact, many people would argue that Hollywood has glamorized this fascination and has used this as an opportunity to monetize this obsession. Recently, the trailer for a new Hollywood film titled, American Boogeyman, released which showcases how the film will dive into the gruesome details of the serial killer, Ted Bundy. Several people have responded in outrage as to why there is even a film detailing his horrifying actions. True crime host of the DIE-ALOGUE podcast, Rebekah Sebastian, joined Cheddar to discuss the fascination behind true crime and where we must draw the line between entertainment and glamorizing these events.
