Marianne, the spine-tingling new thriller from Netflix, follows a young author who discovers the storylines in her bestselling horror novels have started coming true.
One of those characters is Marianne, a witch who has been haunting Emma’s nightmares since she was a child, and who she now must confront back in her hometown. With gory scenes, creaky sounds, witches, demons and spirits, Marianne is not for the faint-hearted.
While it may feel like we’ve only just celebrated New Year (anyone else?), Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re struggling to feel suitably spooky, Netflix has got just the viewing for you.
Netflix confirmed the French-speaking, eight-part series on Twitter writing: “Things you need to know about Marianne: it’s a new horror *series* coming Friday the 13th, it’s French, which somehow makes it significantly creepier, it’s best watched with company and locked doors, NOPE.”
Ok, we’re gripped.
In the newly released trailer, we are introduced to Emma whose every move is being tormented by Marianne. There is also a body buried in the forest, a murder and eery knocks on the door at night. Put simply, it’s freaky AF.
French actress Victoire Du Bois, best known for her role in Call Me By Your Name, gives a haunting performance as Emma, while Lucie Boujenah, Tiphaine Daviot and Ralph Amoussou take on supporting roles.
Marianne will be dropping on Friday 13th October. Warning: do not watch alone or with the lights off.
This is the first of many horror specials to be released by Netflix in the run up to Halloween, but while we wait for further details, be sure to check out our edit of the best horror movies guaranteed to give you the chills. Just prepare to never sleep again.
