The creepiness of a rather minor Netflix documentary really astounds viewers. Below, you may see the trailer and get a general sense of how bizarre it is.
It’s a creepy film
Yes, we are dealing with that kind of situation here.
Voyeur is the name of the game, and although it was released in 2017, for some reason many people are just now catching sight of it.
It describes Gerald Foos, a hotel owner in Aurora, Colorado, who kept a number of covert spyholes hidden around the property so he could watch customers engage in sexual activity in the rooms.
What else could be more absurd, and sufficient to make you never again stay in hotels?
In 2016, journalist Gay Talese wrote an article about Foos, the proprietor of the Manor House Motel, titled “The Voyeur’s Motel.”
Talese found that Foos had installed grilles in the ceiling of several of the rooms in his lodging that allowed him to view guests without their knowledge, exhibiting voyeurism towards those who were staying there.
Foos claimed to be doing studies on people’s sexual behaviors but his main focus was on monitoring them.
He really got in touch with Talese to let him know what he was up to.
Foos kept an eye on what people did in private from a platform on the hotel’s roof.
The story is far more complicated than that.
In fact, the saga devolved into scandal after scandal, with the media’s involvement in the story may be becoming more significant than the exceedingly odd idea itself.
To really understand that, though, you’ll need to see the entire thing.
The documentary was created in 2017 by Myles Kane and Josh Koury, and as of this writing, it has an 82 percent “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The website’s overall review of the movie reads: “Voyeur is a singularly unusual—and thoroughly memorable—documentary experience.”
Fans appear to be surprised by how strange and unsettling everything is as well.
Voyeur on Netflix is SUPER unsettling, someone tweeted.
“The dude is so cocky and f***ing creepy.
Another person wrote: “Just started watching the Netflix documentary Voyeur. What. The. Actual. F***.”
Watching Voyeur on Netflix, according to a third comment.
“Gerald Foos lost his s*** because disclosing the worth of his baseball card collections is a violation of his privacy, even though he violated people’s privacy for YEARS to satisfy his own sick need to be a peeping Tom.
We didn’t even have to mention the baseball cards to convince you that there was more to it than meets the eye.
Voyeur is currently viewable on Netflix.
