| Last updated
Any Netflix fans looking for creepy thrills to cap off the end of spooky season ought to give Mirage a go.
The 2018 movie is available to stream on Netflix and audiences have been raving about it on Rotten Tomatoes ever since.
Check out the trailer here:
The Spanish film, named Durante la Tormenta in the director's native tongue, follows the story of two families living in the same house 25 years apart.
A terrible electrical storm appears in both 1989 and 2014, and through it protagonist Vera (Adriana Ugarte) realises she can speak to a boy who was killed in the past, warning him of the danger he is in.
However, by changing her past to save a life Vera accidentally ends up warping her present beyond recognition with her whole life changed.
From there the film follows Vera as she tries to set things right and work out what will happen to the life she saved in the past.
The movie has been plenty popular among Netflix audiences who've called it a 'must watch' and tried to alert fellow viewers to a hidden gem lurking in the streaming service's massive catalogue of shows and films.
One viewer said they stuck the film on in an attempt to learn Spanish (don't worry, you can watch it in English too) and didn't expect much beyond a movie 'just to pass the time while eating' yet they ended up 'hooked'.
They said the film 'started off not so convincing but it gets good later' and ends with a great twist, so Mirage sounds like a movie that rewards you if you stick with it.
Another viewer called it 'a brilliant movie with an amazingly designed plot' which 'surpasses your imagination' that also manages to end in an incredibly satisfying way.
They called it a 'marvellous piece of work' and a 'must watch for all generations', so it's safe to say that plenty really liked this movie.
It's got a 75 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes so you can be sure that most people who saw Mirage came away very happy with what they watched.
"Overall verdict: 9/10," a third film fan wrote of Mirage, saying they were already a fan of time travel movies and that the movie's concept really appealed to them once they saw it.
Praising Mirage as it 'keeps suspense going', they recommended that Netflix viewers 'go with the flow' and let the film's mystery carry them along.
Mirage is available to stream now on Netflix.
