People are so terrified after watching Netflix’s new horror film that they’re sleeping with the lights on…

I don’t get it. It’s properly lost on me. Why do people watch horrors? They do nothing for you.

If you watch a comedy film, you can remember the funny moments and have a laugh later on, if you watch a drama, you can reflect on what you’ve seen, dissect human nature and grow as a person, if you watch a horror, you get an initial burst of adrenaline and then a pang of fear whenever you’re alone.

It’s not even like you can learn something. Oooh try not to be stalked by a man-eating monster that manifests itself as a killer clown. Goodnight!

Well there’s a new horror that’s scaring people senseless and that’s Eerie, a film that can be found on Netflix.

It’s not a Netflix original, mind, as it comes courtesy of SunCinema, but you know, don’t let that put you off.

The description for the film reads:

The unexpected and gruesome death of a student threatens the existence of a Catholic school for girls.”

Fairly vague, don’t get me wrong, but it definitely looks interesting.

Have a watch of the trailer…

In an interesting move for a horror, the film employs the use of a laughing child and evokes catholic imagery for stylisation and plot…

I’m not having a go; sometimes cliches are cliches for a reason (i.e. they work) and by the looks of things Eerie pulls it off.

Eerie looks to be mainly Filipino-speaking, with English subtitles, but if you’re worried about that taking you out of the film, have a look at the Twitter reviews which say otherwise…
