It all started in March 2015, when Denise Huskins disappeared. Her partner, Aaron Quinn, will report her kidnapping the next morning to the police. Why so late? He explains that he was tied up by the kidnapper.
The investigators immediately doubt this version of the facts and question his testimony. They subsequently discover that the couple was experiencing some difficulties, which further increases their suspicions.
An improbable event then occurs: Denise is back 48 hours later and she explains having been kidnapped and raped. The authorities don't believe it either. And this is far from being the conclusion of this tragic story which will be punctuated by many other twists and turns…
The shadow of Gone Girl
At first glance, this real story bears some resemblance to Gone Girl. This novel by Gillian Flynn, adapted for the cinema by David Fincher, tells the story of how a woman disappears without a trace. Subsequently, her husband is suspected of murder and she ends up mysteriously reappearing.
And precisely, the events of the case presented in the documentary series take place after the release of this film which was a great success. The influence on the mentality of the different protagonists is therefore possible. After a while, no one knows where the truth lies.
The kidnapped truth: a worldwide hit
Netflix hits hard with this original creation which is at the top of viewings in many countries. It is true that documentary series devoted to investigations are often a hit on the streaming platform. In France, we particularly remember the one dedicated to the murder of little Grégory.
Spectators seem to appreciate this production full of twists and turns as evidenced by this rating of 3.5 out of 5 obtained on the site Allociné. The press is on the same wavelength with a score of 93% obtained on Rotten Tomatoes, and 77 on Metacritic.
