A horror film newly released on Netflix has left some viewers screaming out loud and sleeping with the lights on after their viewing sessions.

Eerie, a Filipino supernatural horror movie, was released earlier this year and added to the streaming platform’s catalogue in July.

Set at an all-girls Catholic school, the film features a “clairvoyant guidance counsellor” who “leans on a ghost to uncover the convent’s abusive past” after a student dies by suicide.

Several viewers admitted on social media that the film left them terrified.

“Everyone needs to watch Eerie on Netflix I’m dead a** SCARED watching,” one person wrote.

Someone else said they had screamed three times in just 20 minutes of watching time, while another viewer tweeted: “Just watched Eerie on Netflix and umm where’s my night light?? Scary AF.”

“Watching Eerie on Netflix alone in a hotel is not a good idea,” someone else wrote.

Another asked: “Just watched Eerie on Netflix and guess who’ll be sleeping with the lights on for a week?” next to a raised hand emoji.
