“This is not one person’s act. The people in that chat room did it together.” Netflix has revealed an official trailer for a chilling true crime documentary from South Korea titled Cyber Hell: Exposing an Internet Horror, uncovering the 2019 chat room atrocities that shocked the country. The doc film will be streaming worldwide starting in May – as this is the kind of story that the whole world needs to hear about. “This was nothing short of abuse.” Anonymous and exploitative, a network of online chat rooms ran rampant with sex crimes. The hunt to take down its operators required guts and tenacity. Netflix adds: “This is the story of one of the most devastating digital crimes that gripped the region, the age of digital anonymity that allowed it to thrive, and the victims who spoke out to help bring it down.” This is not a story that many people in America will be familiar with, which makes it even more fascinating and frightening to learn about in a film.
