Jacob Elordi fans might want to think again if they were planning on seeing his new movie.

Elordi shot to fame alongside the likes of Syndey Sweeney and the late Angus Cloud on HBO's Euphoria, and his new film appears to be equally as harrowing.

The 26-year-old stars alongside The Banshees of Inisherin actor Barry Keoghan in Saltburn - which hit cinemas across the globe on November 17.

Warning - trailer contains strong language:

The synopsis for the movie, as per IMDb, reads: "A student at Oxford University finds himself drawn into the world of a charming and aristocratic classmate, who invites him to his eccentric family's sprawling estate for a summer never to be forgotten."

While it sounds quite Bridgerton-esque, it actually seems a little bit more like The Riot Club which, if you've seen it, you'll know ends up taking quite a dark and twisted turn.

With this in mind, people are saying that they 'don't remember what life was like before Saltburn'.

Another viewer warned others that they'll 'never look at Barry [Keoghan] the same again'.

"I miss the peace I felt before Saltburn," said someone else on TikTok.

Another added: "So many things in that movie are permanently cemented into my head."

A lot of people are saying they didn't do their homework before going to see the movie and were largely going to see it for its all-star cast - but even those who did ended up surprised.

"I thought I knew what this movie was going to be heading in, and I was wrong in the best way possible," one viewer said.

"I read the Wikipedia plot and i'm convinced i would still be shocked seeing the movie," someone else went on.

People have compared to film to an array of different movies in an attempt to give potential viewers some context.

So far Saltburn has been compared to Don't Worry Darling, Call Me By Your Name, The Talented Mr. Ripley and even Midsommar.

Taking to social media to share their lengthy review, one TikToker said that it's a 'deeply disturbing movie'.

"What's really interesting, I'd say, is how this movie does its escalation," shared @reliablenarrator.

"It does feel slow at first, but when things start really happening you realize that the lead up to the chaos has been there the entire time."

While the film is full of twists and turns - and evidently leaving some traumatized - it's so far generated decent reviews.

Saltburn currently boasts 71 percent on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, and has a 77 percent audience rating.
