4. Ragdoll

If you’re looking for something that is grittier and darker, you’ll want to turn your attention to the AMC+ series Ragdoll. The series stars Henry Lloyd-Hughes as a troubled and disgraced detective sergeant. He’s back on a case, but it proves to threaten to break him.

Emily Baxter and newcomer Lake Edmunds need to help him solve the case and keep an eye on him at the same time. This case isn’t all that easy, and it is twisted.

The detectives need to get to the bottom of the murders of six people. Their bodies have been dismembered and sewn into one grotesque body known as the Ragdoll. Can they get to the bottom of the case before the murderer strikes again with the next six names on his list?

Ragdoll is available to stream on AMC+.

3. Dr. Death
