The Watts Family


American Murder: The Family Next Door is an American true crime documentary directed by Jenny Popplewell. The film tells the story of the 2018 Watts’ family murders, which took place in Frederick, Colorado. Netflix released this film on September 20, 2020.

The documentary talks about the disappearance of Shanann Watts and her two daughters, Bella and Celeste Watts. The documentary was a very heart felt film that had raw footage from the night it all happened. Shanann Watts was very open while talking about her beautiful family online which gives you a sense of the type of person she was.

The documentary was a great film despite the terrible events that it talked about. It is nice to know that the Watts’ family case is getting more recognition every day and is not going unknown. If you love watching true crime shows/ movies like I do this would be a good film to watch.

American Murder: The Family Next Door is available on Netflix.
