We’re in that post Christmas lull where nobody has a damn clue when or where we are, all the while we’re dreading the prospect of yet another naff New Year’s Eve.

It’s cold and miserable outside and we’re looking for an excuse not to venture out into it, which is lucky because with Netflix you really don’t have to.

Over Christmas the streaming platform has put on a whole host of quality TV shows and original films, with Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, You and Bird Box proving to be the pick of the bunch.

However, if you’ve already rattled through them and are in need of something else to binge on, then look no further, because murder mystery series Murder Mountain has just been added to their library.

The true-crime documentary series focuses on the marijuana industry in Humboldt County, California and the mysterious disappearances and deaths of those who go there.

The Rancho Sequoia area of Alderpoint in Humboldt County is known as ‘Murder Mountain’, an area where you can grow marijuana and work on marijuana farms.

Apparently, the name ‘Murder Mountain’ comes from the Carson serial killers in the 1980s and subsequent disappearances since then. Both Michael Bear Carson and Susan Barnes Carson are currently serving life sentences for carrying out three murders between 1982 and 1983.

Check out the trailer below:

The plot synopsis reads:

“Murder Mountain is the story of Garret Rodriguez, who left home in San Diego to seek his fortune in the marijuana fields of Humboldt County, California.

“Within a year he vanished, touching off a series of bloody events that still haunt local residents to this day. Set against the backdrop of marijuana legalization, Humboldt’s outlaws are now speaking out for the first time about Garret’s fate and the group of vigilantes who brought him home.”

The show hasn’t been out for long but already people are loving it:

Speaking about the series, executive producers Jonathan Cinn and Simon Chinn said in a statement:

“Murder Mountain is a riveting tale about vigilante justice and outlaw culture in a lawless community that resembles America’s Wild West past.

“The series pulls back the curtain on a secret world few of us know anything about, with a cast of real-life isolationists, outlaws, vigilantes and other unforgettable characters.”

All six episodes of Murder Mountain are available to view right now on Netflix.

You. Are. Welcome.
