Netflix viewers are claiming that they can’t sleep after watching the ‘scariest ever’ thriller.

The streaming service has a reputation for having some of the best under-the-radar horrors available.

Films such as His House and The Strays have left a lasting impact on viewers.

Now there is a new film that is being discovered and people are dubbing it as the ‘scariest’ movie they have seen.

Watch the trailer for the thriller below…

Unlocked is a South Korean thriller directed by Kim Tae-joon and it follows office worker Lee Na-Mi (Chun Woo-Hee) who loses her phone on a bus, with Oh Jun-Yeong (Im Si-Wan) picking it up.

Jun-Yeong then tells her to pick her phone up from a repair shop, assuming he has fixed her broken screen.

However, he installs spyware on the device to track her every move, texts and conversations.

This leads to Na-Mi’s life being torn apart and things start to take a dark turn.
