Fans 'too scared to finish' new Netflix horror series 'Ares'

Fans have taken to social media to reveal that they are "too scared to finish" Netflix's new horror series Ares.

Consisting of eight episodes which are just 20 to 30 minutes long, Ares is centered around Rosa Steenwijk (Jade Olieberg), a college student who tries to join Amsterdam's elite circles by becoming a member of a secret society.

However, like a lot of secret societies, it's got secrets of its own...

If you haven't seen it yet, this is the official trailer for Ares: 

Now, many have taken to Twitter to praise the teen drama, which, if reactions there are anything to go by, could join the likes of The Haunting of Hill House as one of the best horrors Netflix has ever produced.

But while reactions have been positive, for some, Ares was simply too scary to finish.

One viewer wrote: "Ares on Netflix is so f*cking disturbing I can't finish it."

A second remarked: "Ok so has anybody watched Ares on Netflix? Cause I'm scared sh*tless and i wanna know if I should keep watching or…? [sic]"

Others, however, simply recommended Ares as a great show.

"If u guys like creepy horror + goth aesthetic shows about cults I highly recommend the new Dutch show Ares that just got put on netflix....the aesthetic is...*chef kiss*"

"Okay, so I freaking LOVED !!! This show was 100% not what I was expecting & I seriously think it’s one of the best Netflix originals ever produced. It’s a relatively short watch, & I think you’d love it if you like horror, bomb goth aesthetics, & social commentary."

It should be noted that Ares is a Dutch-language television series, you may need to watch with subtitles. Despite some viewers saying they were unable to finish it, one Forbes review assures viewers it's well worth sticking with the action until the very end.
