We have to admit, we’re eternally grateful for Netflix.

Despite our propensity to become sofa-bound for an entire weekend and eat our weight in snacks, we love nothing more than a new story to invest in.

We really are a nation of bingers – and the streaming service’s latest, supernatural horror series October Faction promises to have you frozen in fear.

The reviews speak for themselves.

Based on the comic book of the same name by Steve Niles and Damien Worm, October Faction follows the story of married monster hunters Deloris and Fred, as they attempt to keep their sinister profession a secret from their teenage children, twins Geoff and Viv.

The show stars Tamara Taylor (from Bones & Lost) and J. C. Mackenzie (The Wolf of Wall Street & House of Cards) who play the lead characters.

Aurora Burghart (Sex Education) and Gabriel Darku (Slasher) play their twin children.

Hailing the new series as “a masterpiece” many viewers took to Twitter to encourage others to watch it.

With ten episodes to sink your teeth into – consider your diary fully-booked for the next couple of nights a “binge watch” may even be necessary.

Viewers now cannot wait for the release of season 2 to gain answers to their many questions – evidently things were left on a cliff-hanger!

There has also been praise for featuring a romance between two gay men of colour.

Speaking in an interview with Hidden Remote, star J. C. Mackenzie revealed how the characters aren’t just faced with the threat of monsters, but also a series of real-life issues such as homophobia and racism.

“[The series] is both a supernatural thriller and a character-driven family drama about a marriage—really, the ups and downs of marriage. And homophobia and racism. My son (played by Gabriel Darku) is gay on the show”.

“And the racist stuff that we mentioned because of the nature of this town.”

Trust me when I say, it’s pretty addictive.

You know when you just get sucked in and can’t stop – yeah, that was me.

You won’t sleep though…
