A scary movie can't be considered great unless it's full of jump scares, unpredictable twists, and leaves you so afraid you refuse to sleep with the lights off. According to thriller-obsessed folks on Twitter, Netflix's new horror film Eerie checks off all of the above.
Produced in the Philippines, Eerie takes place at Sta. Lucia Academy, an all-girls Catholic school. The unexpected death of a student named Erika shakes the academy, and many students claim they're being haunted by Erika's ghost, leading the school's caring guidance counselor Patricia (Bea Alonzo) to set out on her own investigation. Will she confirm students' suspicions about the strict and borderline abusive Mother Alice (Charo Santos-Concio)? Will Mother Alice take Patricia down for her meddling? What is the "monster" that has been lurking in the shadows of the school?
The film originally premiered at Singapore International Film Festival in December 2018. It was released on Netflix in most countries in July, prompting reviews ranging from "screamed 3 times in 20 minutes" to "forced to sleep with the lights on." Ahead, the best Twitter reactions to Netflix's Eerie.

Just watched 'Eerie' on Netflix alone and HFS... I've watched a lot of horror movies and my standards are set really high but this shook the fuck outta me. Amazing film. Definitely one of the best I've seen.— 𝕲𝖔𝖑𝖉 𝖆𝖓𝖉 𝕯𝖎𝖆𝖒𝖔𝖓𝖉𝖘 👑💎 (@StacyKwon8) August 11, 2019
Eerie is on netflix. It is definitely one of the better horror movies Ive seen recently. I feel it doesnt really rely solely on the jumpscares to make it scary, and when it does decide to use jumpscares, there is proper build up that doesnt just shock you. pic.twitter.com/8HSmSSatRM— Oopsie (@elijackass) July 30, 2019
