You may take that comparison with a pinch of salt but check out the trailer and then get back to me.
Told you – bloody scary.
From the looks of the trailer, Marianne is a centuries-old monster who, despite appearing to have been dead and buried at some point in history, lives on in ghostly form to torment young Emma through visions of blood-stained corpses, Force-choking her friends and sneaking into her room late at night with a knife and a creepy chuckle.
As Marianne is an episodic series rather than a film, it looks like Emma’s feud with the monstrous Marianne will either continue over multiple seasons or follow a True Detective-style anthology route that deals with a different casts in a different setting.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
And good news: it’s just dropped on Netflix today – meaning you can binge on it all this weekend!
On Friday 13th as well – it’s almost like they knew what they were doing.
There aren’t many reviews just yet, but early musings on Twitter seem to confirm the news that it’s scary as balls.
As I say, people seem pretty terrified by it.
Anyway, let me know what it’s like as I will definitely not be watching it.
I’m an absolute wuss who couldn’t even get through the first episode of The Haunting Of Hill House – there’s nay chance I’m sitting through this.
