A never ending scary saga which left the people terrified and psychologically damage
Film Cleavand Abduction has now landed on streaming service Netflix but several viewers have been left disturbed by the true-life drama and have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
The 2015 film was recently added to the streaming platform and has left a number of spectators hooked, however some have been petrified by the awful scenes.
Cleveland Abduction is based on the story of the Ariel Castro kidnappings which took place in the early 2000s.
The film hones in on the story of Michelle Knight who was the first of three victims to be imprisoned by Castro at his home in Cleveland, Ohio.
Michelle, played by actress Taryn Manning, disappeared on 23 August 2002 after leaving a cousin’s house.
But with the realistic portrayal and gritty storyline, viewers took to Twitter to share how unsettled they were with the drama.
One person wrote: “Cleveland Abduction is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever watched. There’s some sick freaks in this world.”
Another chimed: “Watching Cleveland Abduction and I’m currently deeply disturbed.”
A third shared: “But the thought of it actually being a true story disgusted me so much I can’t even imagine how traumatising it must have been for those girls…”
The synopsis from Netflix says: “Abducted and imprisoned, Michelle Knight finds the will to survive amid the most horrific and heartbreaking of circumstances in this true-crime drama.”
Only 21 years old at the time, Michelle had been scheduled to appear in court for a child custody case for her son before her abduction.
Following the incident, Amanda Berry, who was 17, was the second person to be abducted, in April 2003.
She also went on to give birth to Castro’s child while still imprisoned by the criminal.
Castro’s last victim was 14 year old Gina DeJesus who went missing the following year in April 2004.
Michelle lived through captivity until 2013, having only been rescued after Berry managed to escape and alert authorities.
