Netflix fans hail 'love triangle turned fatal' true crime doc with 'insane plot twist'

Viewers have been loving the latest Netflix documentary from Sam Hobkinson

Netflix subscribers have been loving a new 'love triangle turned fatal' true crime documentary that has an 'insane plot twist'.

As Valentine's Day has come and passed this week, many have stuck on countless rom-cons to get in the mood.

However, the talk of the town in recent days will likely put you right off the thought of romance, though many singletons will likely see it as a welcome break from all the love hearts and mushy posts popping up on their social media timelines.

Lover, Stalker, Killer, which was released on the popular streaming platform on February 9, pretty much tells viewers what it has in store from its title.

Netflix's latest true crime doc tells the story of a man named Dave Kroupa, who moved to Nebraska in 2012 with the hope of finding love.

Kroupa met a single mom, Liz Golyar, through an online dating site, but a short while later, he met another woman who he felt an instant connection with.

From that you'd think this new doc is telling the story of a classic love triangle, right? Well, you really couldn't be further away from the truth.

A chance encounter led Golyar to meet the new woman in Kroupa's life, and everything quickly started to unravel after that.

Lover, Stalker, Killer tells the story of Dave Kroupa.

Sam Hobkinson, the director of Lover, Stalker, Killer, told Tudum that he wanted the storytelling of Netflix's newest flick to 'reflect' Kroupa's confusion as he's caught 'in a complete web of falsehood'.

“As a director, it was a gift of a story,” Hobkinson added. “Especially if you’re interested in making structured narratives that are about deception and identity.”

Fans are loving Hobkinson's documentary so far, with the Netflix release sitting at a perfect 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score right now.

The Rolling Stone's Chris Vognar penned: "Hobkinson deserves credit for creating suspense throughout, with assistance from Nick Foster’s score, which happily flirts with Bernard Herrmann, and cinematography and editing that add to the feeling of disorientation and instability."

While Joel Keller, from the Decider, added: "Lover, Stalker, Killer won’t revolutionize the true crime documentary genre, but its story has so many twists and turns that it doesn’t need to."

Fans have also flocked to X to praise the latest Netflix documentary.
