The Terrifying New Netflix Show That Everyone's Comparing to 'Stranger Things'

The new German supernatural crime thriller is just as gripping as life in Hawkins.

Stranger Things' second season premiered a month ago, so that's more than enough time to have binged the whole nine-episode run three times over–skipping episode seven, of course.

But while the show's third season may feel further away than ever right now, today (December 1) Netflix has premiered Dark, an all-new supernatural thriller series that may just make the wait for more from the Duffer brothers just a little easier.

Described as a "family saga with a supernatural twist," German thriller Dark follows four families in a German town as the disappearance of two young children exposes fractured relationships and double lives, and a supernatural mystery that ties back to 1986.

"Dark is also a more mature version of Stranger Things, featuring a great deal of swearing, nudity, and gore," writes IGN. "Thankfully, none of the 'R-Rated' material feels excessive. Dark lives up to its name in terms of its narrative... Dark is a delightful bit of supernatural fun that's worth the 10 hours it will take to finish when it releases on December 1st."
