Para Geek-Oriented Documentaries on Netflix Streaming




My Amityville Horror
I was curious about this one. I remember seeing the movie as an adolescent and being freaked out. Over the years, however, so much came out about the untruth of the story that I pushed it aside and didn't bother myself with the concept or the movie again. So, seeing a documentary involving the son, lots of archive footage and people involved in the story. Stories are recounted by the son and lots of other information we never knew about the whole case. It was exceedingly enlightening, well filmed and edited, and presented. If you have ever wondered about this case, I highly suggest this one. It's worth the watch, whether you believe it happened or not. It's completely enthralling.





Ancient X-Files
International historical documentary series looking at the enigmas behind well known classical and medieval mysteries. (the Minotaur's Labyrinth, the Holy Grail, the Phaistos Disk, The Sudarium of Oviedo)



Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Werner Herzog gains exclusive access to film inside the Chauvet caves of Southern France and captures the oldest known pictorial creations of humanity.




The Pyramid Code
The Pyramid Code is a documentary series of 5 episodes that explores the pyramid fields and ancient temples in Egypt as well as ancient megalithic sites around the world looking for clues to matriarchal consciousness, ancient knowledge and sophisticated technology in a Golden Age. The series is based on the extensive research done in 25 trips to Egypt and 51 other countries around the world by Dr. Carmen Boulter in the Graduate Division of Educational Research at the University of Calgary. The Pyramid Code features interviews with prominent scholars and authors in multidisciplinary fields: geology, physics, astrophysics, archaeology, bi-logical engineering, magnetic field theory, hieroglyphics, and Egyptology. The series explores penetrating questions.




Hunt For the Abominable Snowman
Across the Himalayas are stories of the yeti, or abominable snowman. Half man, half ape, the yeti is said to roam only the most remote peaks, where people rarely venture. Now, veteran explorer and climber Gerry Moffatt sets out to find proof in a hunt that will test his stamina. As conventional scientific theories challenge ancient beliefs and credible witnesses, he works to separate fact from fiction and find hard evidence that the legend is real.



Caveman Cold Case
From PBS: A tomb of 49,000 year-old Neanderthal bones discovered in El Sidron, a remote, mountainous region of northern Spain, leads to a compelling investigation to solve a double mystery: How did this group of Neanderthals die? And could the fate of this group help explain Neanderthal extinction? Scientists examine the bones and discover signs that tell a shocking story of how this group may have met their deaths. Some bones bear distinct signs of cannibalism. Was it a result of ritual or hunger? Neanderthal experts are adamant that they were not bloodthirsty brutes. What happened here 49,000 years ago will take viewers on a much bigger journey - from El Sidron to the other end of the Iberian Peninsula, where scientists are excavating beneath the seas off Gibraltar in search of Neanderthal sites.
