Netflix viewers have been left shaky and scared after watching one of the films that's on the streaming platform. You can see the trailer for Fall below:
As you can probably tell, this film isn’t going to be one to watch if you’re worried about heights or suffer from vertigo, as most of the action takes place way up a huge radio mast.
The premise is that two friends – called Becky and Hunter – climb up a gigantic structure in order to scatter the ashes of Becky’s late husband Dan, who died in a climbing accident.
OK, we get the symbolism behind all of that, but is it really necessary to climb up something even more dangerous in order to remember the memory of that first climbing accident?
Well, for the action that takes place in this film, it certainly is.
Of course, things don’t go entirely according to plan.
It’s not a spoiler to tell you that once they’re on the climb, the corroded ladder of the radio antenna breaks and leaves them stranded hundreds of metres in the air with no phone signal and no possible hope of rescue.
That’s where most of the drama comes in.
It’s also worth mentioning at this point that everything is not quite as it seems and there are some fairly hefty plot twists in the movie, it’s not just two women chatting to each other in fear for their lives atop a big pole.
We don’t want to spoil it for you though.
Released in August 2022, the film stars just four characters, Grace Caroline Currey and Virginia Gardner as Becky and Hunter, and Mason Gooding and Jeffrey Dean Morgan starring as Becky’s husband Dan and father Jeffrey respectively.
Since it touched down on the streaming platform, fans have been flocking to social media to talk about how much it disturbed them.
One said: “Definitely do not watch this movie before bed. I am so unsettled right now.”
Another wrote: “Never felt as anxious watching a film as I do watching Fall on Netflix.
“I’m going to have nightmares.”
A third said: “Wouldn’t advise watching Fall on Netflix if you’ve got a phobia of heights cos I’ve just lost about a pound in sweat through my hands.”
Even Netflix itself had something to say about it, tweeting out: “Almost every single shot from Fall (2022) – a film about two women who get stranded after climbing to the top of a 2000ft radio tower – will make you feel a bit wobbly.”
Still, if you like incredibly tense films about serious peril – which many people do – perhaps you’ve found exactly what you need to watch tonight.
If that sounds like you, Fall is screening on Netflix right now.
