Fans Are Calling Netflix's 'You' The 'Creepiest Show Ever'

Netflix is absolutely smashing it lately, with the interactive Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch and Sandra Bullock movie Bird Box and if you're already all up to date with those and want something you can binge-watch then you might want to give You a go.

Because the new series is picking up rave reviews from viewers and is already tipped for a second season.

The show is being called the 'creepiest ever' by fans on social media, who also note that it's the creepy element which keeps you watching:




And You already has a higher rating Rotten Tomatoes than other seriously creepy show Dexter - season one of You has a whopping 89 percent whereas Dexter is rated at 77 percent. Its also got an impressive 8.1 on IMDB.

If you've not seen it yet, the show is about Joe Goldberg (played by Penn Badgley) who meets aspiring writer Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) - for Joe, it's 'love at first sight' and he quickly becomes obsessed with Beck, stalking her online and in real-life. He then goes to some pretty extreme measure to make sure that he gets into her life.

The show is based on the book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes - and fans will be pleased to know that the book has a sequel, Hidden Bodies, so a second season might be in order.

The first season ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, leaving viewers with a lot of unanswered questions, so surely this can't be the end?
