Where to watch Lost Girls

For over a decade, the identity of the Long Island serial killer remained a mystery. But earlier this week, police finally arrested a suspect. Via NBC News, the suspect’s name is Rex Heuermann, a 59-year-old architect who lives in Massapequa Park, a short distance away from the location where numerous bodies were discovered over a decade ago.

Thus far, Heuermann is only charged in three of the murder cases: Maureen Brainard-Barnes, Megan Waterman, and Amber Costello. But other charges may follow. It may take years for this case to play out in court, but these crimes may not have come to light without the efforts of a woman named Mari Gilbert. Mari’s story was dramatized in the true crime feature film Lost Girls, and we’re going to tell you where you can watch it.

Amy Ryan in Lost Girls.

Lost Girls is a Netflix original movie, and you can stream it there. The film was directed by Liz Garbus from a script by Michael Werwie, which was in turn based on Robert Kolker’s true crime novel, Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery.

Amy Ryan stars as Mari Gilbert, a mother of three daughters who relentlessly hounds the police to find her missing daughter, Shannon Gilbert (Sarah Wisser). Mari’s efforts unexpectedly cause the police to discover the bodies of several missing sex workers who were murdered by the Long Island serial killer.

Thomasin McKenzie co-stars in the film as Sherre Gilbert, with Gabriel Byrne as Commissioner Richard Dormer, Oona Laurence as Sarra Gilbert, Lola Kirke as Kim, Miriam Shor as Lorraine, Reed Birney as Peter Hackett, Kevin Corrigan as Joe Scalise, Rosal Colon as Selena Garcia, Dean Winters as Dean Bostick, James Hiroyuki Liao as Michael Pak, and Molly Brown as Missy.

Fair warning, Mari Gilbert’s story does not have a happy ending and it’s kind of depressing. While Gilbert’s quest to find justice for her daughter did expose the serial murders, police ultimately concluded that Shannon Gilbert was not murdered by the Long Island serial killer. Shannon Gilbert’s body was found, but police believed that she died from an accidental drowning. Her family still believes that Shannon was murdered.

Finally, in 2016, Mari Gilbert was stabbed to death by one of her other daughters, Sarra Gilbert, during a psychotic episode. Sarra Gilbert was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 25 years in prison. However, Mari’s legacy is that she helped bring numerous murders to light. Without her, the Long Island serial killer may have remained undetected and uncaptured.

You can watch Lost Girls on Netflix.

Season 5's mock dating show, Love Overboard, is set on a beautiful yacht as the contestants believe it's a party tour of the Caribbean.

However, the fun doesn't last once LANA, the AI cone voiced by Desiree Burch, reveals itself, explaining the rules of Too Hot to Handle.

5 most shocking revelations from Myth of the Zodiac Killer
The official poster for Peacock's Myth of the Zodiac Killer.

Most documentaries, series, and movies centered around the infamous Zodiac Killer focus on his terrible crimes, chilling letters and ciphers, and the seemingly neverending search for his identity. Even today, more than 50 years after his crimes, the cases remain unsolved. But a new Peacock docuseries Myth of the Zodiac Killer takes a different stance from any other that completely blows the theories and suspicions wide open: what if the Zodiac Killer never actually existed?

Filmmaker Andrew Nock and former English professor Thomas Horan, who has studied every piece of evidence, news clipping, and detail from the Zodiac Killer cases, believe that there might never have been a serial killer behind the murders. Horan, in particular, thinks it’s nothing more than a myth, contrived over time as the letters, stories, and theories dominated the conversation around the case, manipulating public opinion. Is there really any concrete evidence that the crimes were committed by the same person? Hock and Horan have interesting theories that are explored through the compelling two-part true crime docuseries.

Where to watch the 2023 sci-fi movie 65
Adam Driver in 65.

Earlier this year, Star Wars veteran and potential Fantastic Four cast member Adam Driver headlined 65, an original sci-fi film from Sony Pictures. Evil Dead icon Sam Raimi produced the film, which was co-written and co-directed by the duo of Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. While Driver is the human star of the film, the real attractions are the dinosaurs that inhabited the Earth 65 million years ago. And unfortunately for Driver's character, Mills, he may be the only man alive in that time period. But he isn't the only human.

65 hit theaters on March 10, 2023, which makes it one of the more recent additions to the streaming-verse. Now, with the official streaming premiere of 65 only a day away, we're going to tell you where you can watch it.
