‘Stranger Things’ Meets ‘The Shining’ In Netflix’s New Series

Radar

The Upside Down ain’t got nothing on the ‘Dark’ torture room

Netflix just released the trailer for its dark new series, guaranteed to haunt you for the rest of the day. Dark is the entertainment company's latest true crime/horror series that's slated to hit a computer near you this December. And after seeing the terrifying trailer in all its glory, we determined that the series could best be described as the perfect crossover between Stranger Things and The Shining. Talk about not being able to sleep at night. 

According to the trailer's description, the show is centered on the "disappearance of two kids in the German small-town of Winden opens abysses that turn the concept of time on its head. The question is not who has kidnapped the children... but when." The missing children in question are Mikkel Nielsen and Erik Obendorf, who seem to be trapped in a strange, Upside Down-esque vortex between the years 1953, 1986, and 2019. The trailer then goes on to show different cuts of grieving families, a search party on an empty landscape, and one truly terrifying scene of Obendorf bound to a chair about to be tortured. 

Remember that heart-stopping "REDRUM" moment from The Shining? Strange cryptic messages like that can be found in the trailer, too. 

Dark is out December 1 on Netflix. See the trailer, below.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] www.youtube.com

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video) www.youtube.com

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House www.youtube.com

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.

"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
