Terrifying Netflix Movie Eerie Leaves Fans Opting To 'Sleep With The Lights On'

Terrifying Netflix Movie Eerie Leaves Fans Opting To 'Sleep With The Lights On'

Let's be honest: you don't go to see a horror film and expect to leave in the same frame of mind you'd experience after watching, say, Matilda. But do you go to be scared half to death, resulting in you having to sleep with the lights on? Some would argue yes, and I would say don't listen to them because they have no idea what they're talking about.

But it would seem that's exactly the reaction provoked by new Netflix horror movie Eerie - viewers have explained how they ended up 'screaming three times in 20 minutes', with others being left feeling 'haunted'.

The film, which is available on Netflix now, focuses on the unexpected and gruesome death of a student, which in turn threatens the existence of an old Catholic school for girls.

After watching the 100-minute-long film, one viewer tweeted: "Just watched Eerie on Netflix and guess who'll be sleeping with the lights on for a week?"

Another wrote: "Watching #Eerie on Netflix alone in a hotel is not a good idea," with a third adding: "Just watched Eerie on Netflix and umm where's my nightlight?? Scary af."

Meanwhile a fourth comment reads: "I have basically become a critic when it comes to horror movies. I haven't watched a good one in a while 'cause i couldn't seem to find some good ones [on] Netflix but then Eerie came and I must say that movie is haunting and indeed very eerie."

Funny that...

The viewer continued to rave about the film, adding: "Cinematography was amazing and plot was really good. The ending was something I had never expected. It was just good. I love me some horror movies that have good back stories."

Eerie was directed and co-written by Filipino filmmaker Mikhail Red... and yes, that means subtitles, but you'll probably be too terrified to worry too much about reading words along the bottom of the screen.

The synopsis from Star Cinema reads: "Pat Consolacion (played by Bea Alonzo), the school guidance counsellor, involves herself with the students in the hopes of helping them cope, and at the same time uncover the mysteries of the student's death.

"Most students suspect the strict and borderline abusive Mother Alice (Charo Santos-Concio), who also threatens Pat's tenure in the school because of her continuous meddling with the case.

"But Pat's unusual talents lead her to knowing Eri, a former student who's been watching the whole school for years. Piece by piece, Pat uncovers the secret of the school and the monster that it nurtured for the past century."
