In recent years, there has been an abundance of true crime documentaries on Netflix about the tapes from serial killers such as Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer.

While drama series and biopics about true crime released this year such as The Watcher and Jeffrey Dahmer have made the genre even more popular - this is alongside the large online presence of the true crime community who discuss these shows.

Now fans can find all of these shows in one place by simply typing the numbers "9875" into the search bar where a catalogue of Netflix's crime documentaries and biopics will then appear.

One person wrote: "It works. best way to find True crime on Netflix."

"Oh yeah. So many Netflix cheat codes out there. You can look them up on the Internet," another person said.

Someone else added: "I didn't think this would work this is really cool thank you."

However, the hack appeared to be less successful for others.

One person said: "I did it and Shrek ForeverAfter came up," while another commented: "I did this and got Wheel of Fortune."

As a commenter highlighted, if true crime isn't up your street then there are a variety of codes for the different genres that will make your search that bit easier.
