Stephen King is not only a best-selling author who has defined the supernatural fiction genre for decades, but he’s a Netflix fan like all of us too. For those of you unfamiliar with his work, his books have been the subject of many successful films – The Shining, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption and ‘It’ to name a few.
Recently, the author tweeted about enjoying the Netflix original French horror series, Marianne and compared it to Stranger Things. He also said that the show had a ‘Stephen King vibe’ which is the greatest compliment, coming from the man himself.
Marianne premiered on Netflix on September 13th but kind of went unnoticed with the number of shows out in the month. The premise of the show and the trailer created a lot of buzz and for fans of the horror genre, this one hits the mark and how. The show is about an author who writes horror novels and is haunted by a demonic character she created. Not only has the show received Stephen King’s validation but has also received a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics have loved the show, and it’s now time for audiences to embrace the show.
If you're one of those sickos--like me--who enjoys being scared, MARIANNE (Netflix) will do the job. There are glints of humor that give it a STRANGER THINGS vibe. It also has (I say it with all due modesty) a Stephen King vibe.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) September 26, 2019
Not resorting to jump scares or any of the clichés associated with the genre, Marianne is a breath of fresh air and managed to scare us out of our wits. Probably one of the finest shows since Netflix’s Haunting of The Hill House, Marianne is just the right pick for those who are looking to give themselves sleepless nights. Trust us, there are certain scenes in the show that will stay with you for a long, long time.
