Netflix just dropped a low-key new show that could become its next big hit.
While subscribers have been waiting for the new seasons of After Life Y Ozark, has been added to the service of streaming a program that hopes to achieve a success similar to that of Squid Game.
That program is called Archive 81 and will especially excite horror fans.
Archive 81 is the free adaptation of a podcast that was developed for television by Rebecca Sonnenshine, with the help of the director of Saw Y The Conjuring, James Wan.
The series introduces us to restoration expert Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie), who is offered a job by a wealthy man named Virgil Davenport (Martin Donovan).
The job is to restore a collection of damaged videocassettes from the 1990s. However, Dan can only do this in Virgil’s isolated compound, as the tapes are very fragile.
It turns out that these tapes contain recordings of a graduate student (Dina Shihabi) investigating a strange apartment complex that was destroyed in a mysterious fire.
It doesn’t take long for Dan to become obsessed with the recordings, leading to the discovery of a creepy cult.
Early reviews for the eight-episode series have been positive, with the show scoring 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Horror fans will delight in the description of the show he did The Guardian: “file 81 offers generous portions, albeit perhaps at times too majestically paced, of conspiracy theories, jump scares, hallway stalkers, things that make noise in the night, figures from the past being resurrected, hallucinations.”
The show also includes references to movies like The Shining, The Blair Witch Project Y Rosemary’s Baby.
AV Club he says the show “demands patience,” but adds that it’s a “surprisingly satisfying investment” and that its “creepy strength lies in this growing sense of fear.”
Fan reactions have also been positive, with many of them generating quite high expectations about the show’s scares on Twitter.
“See Archive 81 right before bed maybe not the wisest decision,” one viewer wrote, with another adding, “I’m watching Archive 81 now and I love this creepy feeling.”
Archive 81 is currently available on Netflix.
