Streaming service—Netflix—is a gift that keeps on giving with movies like ‘Gerald’s Game’, and shows like ‘Stranger Things’, ‘The OA’ and ‘Orange Is The New Black’. It is a great way to spend an entire weekend and binge watch season after season of addictive shows, creepy documentaries, and crime dramas. And, if the existing roster of shows weren’t enough, Netflix is constantly upping their game and going ham with their horror offerings. Because it’s October—the scariest month of the year. Also, because horror fans can never get enough of the 3 a.m. scare.
Talking about creepy scares—Netflix’s new German show ‘Dark’—looks like a darker version of ‘Stranger Things’, and tells the tale of a modern German town that is torn apart when two children go missing. But rather than going down the true crime route—this menacing series gets incredibly twisted.
‘Dark’ is ‘the first Netflix original series entirely created, produced and shot in Germany,’ according to a release from the streaming juggernaut. According to Netflix, ‘Dark’ is “a family saga with a supernatural twist. Set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. In ten, hour-long episodes, the story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in 1986.”
Speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Netflix execs. further said, “It’s really exciting because if all those people who watched [that show] will at least think about watching ‘Dark’, I think that’s a great opportunity for us. So keep comparing it.”
‘Dark’ will be available on Netflix on 1 December.
