Netflix's viewership rankings are currently flooded with horror films, eerie TV shows, and serial killer stories, with the aptly named Hellhole the latest to join the fray. This is a turn of events that absolutely everyone saw coming from a mile away.
The atmospheric Polish terror is performing so well that, according to FlixPatrol, it is presently ranked as the ninth most-viewed movie on the platform's global rankings. Since being added to the library, it has become a Top 10 hit in 36 different countries around the world. It's been abundantly evident once more that readers are completely hungry when it comes to all things macabre.
In addition to keeping fans of serial killers interested, Ryan Murphy's Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and the true-crime thriller The Good Nurse have also been popular choices. Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities and the Spanish-language hit The Chalk Line have drawn viewers who prefer the darker, more intense end of the spectrum.
In the 1987 film Hellhole, a young and inexperienced police officer infiltrates a mystery monastery in an effort to learn the truth about a string of disappearances from a facility that purports to rehabilitate persons suffering from possession. As you might expect, there's a lot more to the tale than just the persistent allegations of ritual sacrifice and devil worship that have dogged the convent for years, leading our naive hero into a struggle to try and preserve his own life as well.
In less than a week, The Chalk Line and Hellhole have brought Netflix two international horror hits, and those who pay their monthly subscription price are equally eager and fearful to watch them both.
