Newly added Netflix film Cleveland Abduction traumatized audiences

A truly gruesome crime film has just hit Netflix, with viewers left “traumatized” by the “disturbing” events depicted in the film.

Netflix viewers were horrified by the newly added true crime drama Cleveland Abduction, calling it “one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever watched.”

The 2015 Sony Pictures film was recently added to the streaming service, introducing it to a number of new viewers who had never seen the film before.

The film documents the infamous Ariel Castro kidnapping, which took place in Cleveland, Ohio in the early 2000s.

The story follows 21 year old single mother Michelle Knight, played by Orange is the new Black actress Taryn Manning.

Michelle, now 40 and a successful writer, was the first of three victims who Castro imprisoned in her home, when she was just 21 years old.

He was trapped inside for 11 years.

Eventually, Michelle befriended two other women who were also held captive by Castro, including Amanda Berry, 16, and Gina DeJesus, 14.

In 2013, Berry fled with his six-year-old daughter, Castro’s child he gave birth to while in prison, and contacted the police, who rescued the other captives and arrested Castro.

Viewers are left uneasy by the dark storyline.

On Twitter, one person said: “Cleveland Abduction is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever watched. There are some sick freaks in this world.”

Another wrote: “Watching the Cleveland Kidnapping and I am currently very disturbed.”

A third wrote: “So many tears, the hardest film I’ve ever seen.”

Castro was eventually sentenced to life imprisonment plus 1000 years in prison, without the possibility of parole.
