Netflix has had a rather strong offering of original horror content this October with Gareth Evans’s Apostle (review), "The Haunting of Hill House," and "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," but they're not done yet!
Today, the streaming service announced (and simultaneously launched) a new anthology of horror-themed short films, titled "Don’t Watch This."
"Ghoulish creatures, dark obsessions and unsettling visions await in this hair-raising set of short horror films. You've been warned.
We challenged Netflix talent and partners to bring us the most unbearable, unwatchable, can’t-possibly-finish short films you’ve ever seen on Netflix. The result is absolutely terrifying and we’re advising you not to watch. But if you must, see for yourself at www.Netflix.com/DontWatchThis"
Below you'll find the list of shorts, a synopsis of each, and a teaser trailer.
“Friendship Bracelet”: When two popular girls show up to her birthday party, outcast Julie goes to chilling extremes to make them her best friends.
