Princess Diana

In his controversial eulogy for his sister Diana, Earl Spencer blamed the princess's death on the paparazzi.

"It is a point to remember that of all the ironies about Diana, perhaps the greatest was this—a girl given the name of the ancient goddess of hunting was, in the end, the most hunted person of the modern age," he said.

It is another great irony that decades after her death, Diana's story remains a point of almost compulsive fascination for the public, and her innermost struggles and private agonies are the subjects of three new high-profile media events.

One of the latest trends on TikTok involves users filming their "traumatized" reactions to the controversial indie film Megan Is Missing.

Michael Goi's 2011 movie uses found footage style to excavate the kind of psychological horror that stirs just beneath your consciousness when you hear of heinous crimes in the news, like the NXIVM sex cult, Sarah Lawrence sex cult, or anything Jeffrey Epstein said or did in his entire profane life (before he, you know, didn't kill himself).
