A terrifying horror movie has just landed on Netflix — and fans are being left ‘traumatised’ after watching.
You can watch the shocking trailer below:
In the past, Netflix hasn’t been shy in adding horror films that have shocked streaming fans to their cores.
TV and film aficionados have recently called The Strays ‘absolutely terrifying’ and also said that watching the sinister horror film Incantation was the ‘worst mistake’ of their life.
Now there’s a new film streaming on the service — and it’s simply leaving horror fans squirming in their seats.
Directed by Vincenzo Natali and starring Wes Anderson favourite Adrien Brody, Splice follows Clive and Elsa (Sarah Polley) — two scientists who are attempting to experiment with DNA.
After some success at splicing animal genes, the pair are asked to terminate the project.
However, they don’t heed their employer's warnings and instead, the scientists work on the project in secret.
Eventually, they develop a creepy living-and-breathing female creature.
Elsa names the being Dren, and both she and Clive become its ‘parents’.
However, the terrifying creature has a tail, a pair of wings, and hands that feature only three fingers. It’s a spine-chilling monster.
Despite the movie being 14 years old, Splice has gained an all-new following after being added to Netflix and is causing film fans to lose sleep.
One Twitter user wrote: “Splice is now on Netflix and I’m thrilled that so many people are finally experiencing the same emotions and having the same reaction I had when I saw it in a theatre a decade ago… Most disturbing move I’ve ever seen, hands down.”
Another wrote: “Just watched Splice, I am disturbed for life.”
A third said: “I’m laughing at the Netflix comments on the movie Splice. I saw it when it first came out in 2010. It is the MOST disturbing movie I've ever seen.
“Scared me sh******. The ending left me traumatised. I love the Conjuring, Paranormal movies but this is the most upsetting by far!"
However, not everyone is impressed by how scared Netflix watchers are.
One wrote: “Wow, just read a story about people who watched Splice on Netflix… A horror movie. They are complaining about a horror movie being traumatising. IT’S A HORROR MOVIE!
"If you are that much of a wallflower, just don’t watch horror movies for Petes sake.”
You can stream Splice on Netflix in Canada now; it currently isn't available in the US or UK.
Be warned, it’s not for the fainthearted.
