Watch the Mysterious Trailer for ‘Dark’, Netflix’s New Supernatural Thriller

It might be easy to categorize Dark, Netflix’s new creepy-looking thriller, as a sort of Stranger Things offshoot. But this first trailer indicates things are much more disturbing and, well, dark.

See for yourself:

Louis Hofmann, one of the actors in Dark, discussed a few details about the story with Deadline:

“The story is about four families that are being sent on a frantic hunt after two children disappear. I am part of one family, of course… My character Jonas is very introverted and has recently lost his father that has, in a mysterious way, killed himself. Mikkel disappears, the little child. That’s where it all starts. Jonas is then trying to reveal a big family secret.”

Yes, on the surface maybe it echoes certain elements of Stranger Things, but this seems more threatening and less concerned with humor and nostalgia.

Dark takes place in Germany, and it will be in the native language. It drops on Netflix December 1. Count me in.
