There is a new trending topic on Twitter: a horror movie recently presented by Netflix, the creators of the "Stranger Things" series. The movie appears to be something out of this world in terms of terror, according to a wave of tweets calling it "the scariest movie ever."
I nearly peed my pants watch Veronica on Netflix last night. Yet another reason to NOT do a Ouija board!!! #Veronica— Sammy1973 (@HorrorReader) 2 марта 2018 г.
Ok, I'm watching #Veronica on my own. I've nearly had to turn it off twice… I'm only halfway through.— Natalie Lester (@NatalieLester1) 1 марта 2018 г.
Directed by Paco Plaza, the movie is about a teen girl and two classmates who decide to play with a ouija board during a solar eclipse and awaken some dark spirits. It has a rare 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 12 reviews, which is something.
Judging by the later Tweets, though, it looks like a lot of people were disappointed both with the movie and the hype surrounding it.
I watched #Veronica on @NetflixUK the other night. I’m assuming they’re paying for all these “it’s the scariest film ever made” articles because it was a bit shit. Couple of jumpy bits but overall, pretty poor ⭐️⭐️— Steven M (@Steven_McC) 2 марта 2018 г.
Watching #Verónica on Netflix,so far so dull and very predictable. Why are all possession movies centred around pubescent catholic girls?— Andrew Pile (@andyp1408) 2 марта 2018 г.
Some users appear to have enjoyed the movie, but they also shared the opinion that "scariest movie ever" is bit of overestimation.
#Veronica netflix is a decent horror film but definitely not the scariest film ever made 🇪🇸— Norman Bates 5 (@cantbeatthe80s) 2 марта 2018 г.
Seen some scarier selfies on here truth be told.
The movie is said to be based on a true story about the unsolved case of a young girl in Madrid who mysteriously died in 1992 after using a ouija board. Police were never able to crack the case and the death remains unexplained to this day.
