A Netflix horror film is so terrifying people can't finish watching it
Plenty have been hiding behind the sofa during this one.
Veronica is a Spanish film directed by Paco Plaza, one of the men behind the infamous cult horror film [REC], and it is apparently living up to its billing as the scariest film on Netflix. It's based on the true story of a young girl named Estefania Gutierrez Lazaro that died in 1992 shortly after using a Ouija board.
The film opens with an emergency telephone call and ends with a police report, whilst specific dates, times, names and locations are used throughout the film. Crime scene photographs accompany the credits but not that many people make it that far, as you can see:
Started watching Veronica on Netflix (huge REC fan so interested in anything Paco Plaza is involved in) but the demon walking down the hallway scene freaked me out so much I had to turn it off... #SuchAWuss pic.twitter.com/4oCcjQUJST

Some people, however, are not convinced that the film - featuring the usual horror tropes of seances, flying objects, demons, tense music and, of course, a blind chain-smoking nun - is in any way scary at all.
Just watched the “scariest film of the year” on Netflix - #Veronica. It was good, quite scary, a few jump scares, creepy demons and ouija boards... Yet definitely not THE scariest film I have ever seen.

So I finally watched Veronica on Netflix. It was sooo hyped up to be terrifying and I didn't find it scary at all. 🤷🏻
What are some super freaky horror movies I can check out??

You can watch the trailer for the film below, and decide for yourself whether you'll be taking it on tonight with a bag of popcorn and a cushion you can hold to your face and scream into.
