Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

From professional squatters to serial killers, the each harrowing episode of the true crime series tells a cautionary tale about what can happen when you allow strangers into your home in order to split the rent. The narratives, most of which were previously featured in local and national news outlets, and on TV magazine shows like Dateline, are offered from the point of view of the victims and their loved ones. Some of them are stories of survival, some are not, and all of them are disturbing. No doubt fans of the genre will find it worth the watch, but Worst Roommate Ever may serve as a motivator for living on your own from now on.
