There is a lot of true crime series out there, I mean a lot. There’s also a ton of renovation, flip and sale series. But only one show combines them both, “Murder House Flip.”
I was browsing the Roku service and stumbled across this neat original series. In “Murder House Flip” co-hosts Joelle Uzyel and Mikel Welch take viewers inside homes where horrific murders have taken place and are now occupied by new residents. First, we get a tour and the cases are discussed. Then the family leaves for a few days while the house is remodeled and redecorated. The goal is to help the homeowner to see the place as their home, not a murder house, but let’s be honest, who could forget something like that?
The first season includes the homes of seven killers. And sometimes, the show makes grizzly discoveries on camera, like in season one episode eight, while remodeling the bathroom of the what is the former Fredrick Hengl house, they discovered puddles of dried blood under the bathroom tiles. In case you haven’t heard about the killer, Hengl was charged with the murder and dismemberment of his wife in the same bathroom before going to the kitchen and cooking pieces of her.

Season one, which premiered in 2020 on Quibi, was included as part of Roku’s buyout of the Quibi libaray after the service ended. The buyout also includes Sam Raimi’s “50 States of Fright” and over seventy other series. There is no word yet if any of the series will be renewed by Roku.
Murder House Flip” is now streaming free on Ruku.
