With so many poorly produced cheesy horror shows these days, it makes sense that when something truly special arrives that people would sing its praises from the rooftops. Thanks to Netflix, people have access to more viewing options than ever before including some international releases. Now a South Korean survival horror show is currently the third most popular program on the entire platform with fans going wild for it on Twitter.
Squid Game is a nine-episode series that just dropped on Netflix on September 17th. While it has faced controversy for potentially plagiarizing the 2014 Japanese film As the Gods Will, it seems that doesn’t matter now that fans are absolutely going bananas for the show.
