#40) Unseen

Evil sometimes hides in plain sight, especially when it targets the most marginalized members of society. In 2009, the Cleveland police department made a horrifying discovery at the house of a known sex offender named Anthony Sowell. Police found the bodies of 11 women on the property. But the worst horrors were yet to be revealed: how Sowell was able to kill 11 women over two years without anyone noticing. Powerful and genuinely haunting, Unseen is an incredible true crime documentary.
