Haunted: Netflix moves from true crime to true horror
Staff Reporter | On 14, Oct 2018
True crime is all the rage these days, and Netflix is a large part of that. Since Making a Murderer, the streaming giant has doubled down on the genre, with series such as The Staircase designed for fans of non-fiction offenders to binge. Now, Netflix is moving from true crime to true horror with new series Haunted.
The show takes a leaf from the book of Lore, the horror podcast all about the real life origins of famous horror myths and traditions – a podcast that was turned into a TV series by Amazon last year. Haunted, in a similar vein, will focus on real people, real stories, real horror. From the Executive Producers of The Purge franchise and (yes) Lore, Haunted gives a chilling glimpse into the first-person accounts from people who have witnessed horrifying, peculiar, extraordinary supernatural events and other unexplained phenomenons that continue to haunt them. Expect interviews, reenactments and creepy music galore when Haunted hits Netflix on Friday 19th October – and, if you want your true horror fix before then, check out Netflix’s Reddit thread dedicated to artwork inspired by real horror stories submitted by members of the public.
Here’s a trailer for the series:
Haunted: Season 1 is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
