We all love a good Netflix show. The streaming giant has been host to many of our favorites, including the likes of Stranger Things, Orange Is The New Black, and Grace and Frankie. But one genre the platform seems to have perfected is anything that gives us a scare.
But their latest release is set to top anything horror-related they've done before - leaving viewers dubbing it as the "scariest" show that's ever been made by the streaming giant - it's the second series of Dirty John ...
Who enjoyed the first series of Dirty John?The creepy tale absolutely captivated audiences.
It was based on a podcast of the same name.Which told the true story of a violent scam artist.
The fact it was based on a true story made it even more horrifying.And the performances were absolutely impeccable, too.
We basically watched the whole thing on the edge of our seats.True thriller genius.
And for those who loved the original?Boy, do we have some exciting news! Season two is back - and it's better than ever.
There's something twisted within us that just loves a good scare.Nothing about being completely creeped out, jumping out your skin, or sleeping with the light on after embarking on a late-night horror movie viewing seems all that appealing, but somehow, the horror franchise has racked up quite a significant fanbase.
Many of us are enticed by the thought of tackling a scary movie.From ghosts and demons to gore and cold-blooded murder, there seems to be no end to what producers can come up with for their latest horror-related ventures, and for what we are willing to endure.
It's almost like an addiction.No matter how frightening or gory, it seems we just can't stop watching.
And there's a race to keep topping the scare-factor.With decades worth of horror cinematic history, we have gotten used to the usual horror tropes thrown at us on-screen, so writers are constantly having to find frightening new avenues to explore to add a new narrative to the classic horror franchise.
But there's one trend within the genre that's on the rise...

It's a market that's skyrocketed in popularity and given us many well-loved shows.

Streaming giant Netflix has certainly enjoyed success within this sector.The platform seems to be really good at roping in horror fans with its tantalizing releases.
The Haunting of Hill House was proof of this.
via: imdbWhile the platform treats horror fans to a petrifying selection of scary movies, it's also been host to horror-series, like The Haunting of Hill House, that gives viewers a prolonged adrenaline-inducing experience of horror.
Instead of enduring a single installment in a movie, horror fanatics can enjoy multiple episodes instead.It's the perfect scenario for those who want their fear fix to last that bit longer.
And Netflix's latest release has been dubbed as the scariest yet.The second series of Dirty John has viewers feeling creeped out ...
