Viewers had to turn off new Netflix movie after just three minutes due to petrifying opening scene

A movie's opening scene has left viewers so 'anxious' they've had to turn it off within two minutes.

Viewers are flocking to social media petrified over a recent Netflix release.

If you hadn't been left horrified enough by a disaster film, which recently came onto the streaming service, and wanted to be so terrified you actually have to turn off the movie within two minutes of watching, then Netflix has you covered.

Your face during the first two minutes.

Written and directed by John Lee Hancock, the psychological crime thriller opens with a girl being followed by a car on the highway - you'll have to give it a watch yourself to see why it's left viewers quite so scared.

The story then goes on to focus on Deputy Sheriff Joe 'Deke' Deacon and lead detective James 'Jimmy' Baxter's investigations into two murders. The pair are trying to track down a serial killer who's continuing to strike in Los Angeles, alongside other women being followed by vehicles, interjected with moments from Deke's own past all leading to a spine-tingling unravelling of events and discovery of the truth.

The film stars Man on Fire's Denzel Washington as Deacon and Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek as Baxter, alongside Jared Leto as Albert Sparma and Dead to Me's Natalie Morales as Detective Jamie Estrada.

Despite a pretty meagre audience score of 67 percent and sombre tomatometer score of 45 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has seen an influx in reviews since coming onto Netflix. Prepare to bite your nails in anticipation:

Viewers have taken to X to weigh in with their reviews of the film - titled The Little Things - many admitting they actually had to turn the movie off because they were so terrified.

A user wrote: "2min 52 sec into Netflix the little things & it’s made me so anxious I’ve had to turn it off."

"Watching The Little Things on Netflix and the first two minutes are so scary, I’m not sure I can continue," a second added.

However, others have praised the film despite the intense emotions it stirs.

One user said: "I’m watching The Little Things on Netflix and Denzel Washington and Rami Malek are so good together. Special nod to how creepy Jared Leto is in his role!"

You probably don't want to watch it with the lights off.

"The little things on Netflix. Yeah now that is a movie. Not no Saltburn," a third commented.

And a final resolved: "Watching 'The Little Things' on Netflix. Pretty good so far. Love anything Denzel does!"
