Horror fans are raving after watching terrifying new Netflix series
Anyone with an appetite for horror and spending long weekends on the sofa may well have met their match with the release of Netflix’s new startling French horror series “Marianne”. Despite only dropping onto the streaming service on the auspicious Friday the 13th, fans around the world have wasted no time in letting everyone know that the show is not for the faint of heart.
The official synopsis of the terrifying new production states: "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." Available in both English-dubbed and subtitled versions, never before has the world’s sexiest language sounded so scary.
Check out the terrifying trailer below:
As with almost any modern release, social media has been instrumental in establishing Marianne as a big name in horror. As one Twitterer wrote:
"I just started Marianne on Netflix. 10/10 would recommend, the first horror to ever make me have to close my eyes, first horror that made me paranoid and scared enough to cry, first horror to give me nightmares that woke me up every 30 minutes.”
Despite their increasingly disturbed sleep pattern, the reviewer hastened to add, “You bet I’mma keep watching.”
Others were equally effusive in their praise. Another member of the Twitterati stated, "I really enjoyed the first episode of the series Marianne. Hopefully it continues to be a very good horror series. I usually don't flinch while watching horror but this has some startling scenes," while a third added, “Just one hour into this and I'm already shit scared.... finally some good horror content.” Despite the language barrier, it’s obvious that the show is making an impression.
The show currently boasts an eight out of 10 rating on entertainment database IMDB, demonstrating that it’s proving popular beyond the realms of Twitter. After the success of The Haunting of Hill House, Netflix may well have been worried that horror-lovers were going to be feeling bereft. Thanks to Marianne, they can rest easy.
