Stephen King just compared Netflix's new horror series 'Marianne' to his own work

With Halloween fast approaching, Netflix has been getting itself ready for a truly spooky October 31 with its new Netflix and Chills initiative.

The brand new category includes all sorts of spooky movies and tv series, meaning you can stay in on Halloween this year, and binge horror films until you're literally too scared to leave the room.

Personally speaking, I have an extremely low tolerance for all things horror. I once had to turn off a particularly frightening episode of Miss Marple because it was freaking me out too much, so a full blown scary movie is enough to stop me sleeping properly for a week.

But anyway, if you're the sort of person that enjoys having the living daylights scared out of them, then Netflix has got you covered this year.

First up, there's the just-released In The Shadow Of The Moon. Check out the spooky trailer right here:

On October 11th, Fractured will drop on the streaming service to keep the screams coming:

And now, Stephen King has come out in recommendation of yet another spooky Netflix show, Marianne.

Watch the gripping trailer for Marianna right here:

The prolific author took to Twitter on Thursday to pay homage to the show, which he says has a "Stranger Things" vibe, alongside a sprinkling of his own Stephen King trademark style. He wrote;

"If you're one of those sickos--like me--who enjoys being scared, MARIANNE (Netflix) will do the job. There are glints of humor that give it a STRANGER THINGS vibe. It also has (I say it with all due modesty) a Stephen King vibe."

Marianna is a French horror series that debuted on Netflix on September 13. It's described by the streaming service thus;

"Lured back to her hometown, a famous horror writer discovers that the evil spirit who plagues her dreams is now wreaking havoc in the real world."

The series currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, too.
