The first look from this upcoming crime docuseries recently released by Netflix on YouTube and calling it spooky would be an understatement.
The first trailer of the series centers around Jeffrey’s relationship with his neighbor Glenda played by Niecy Nash, who also starred in the popular teen drama Never Have I Ever. Interestingly, Glenda is the first person to sense something is wrong with Jeffrey.
She notices questionable behavior, a foul smell from his apartment, and the sound of power tools all night. Despite Glenda’s best efforts, she fails to get the attention of the authorities. Although Evan is no stranger to playing disturbing roles, seeing him as the lead actor adds much more thrill and excitement to the series.
The trailer also features solid visuals and an eerie soundtrack playing in the background. However, the showdown between Jeffrey and Glenda catches the viewer’s eye. The serial killer peculiarly asks Glenda to eat a sandwich he prepared for her. When she refuses to do so, he says, “You’re just like my mom, telling on me when I ain’t done nothing wrong.”
