Netflix viewers have been left ‘traumatised’ by a ‘terrifying’ horror movie.

There has been a recent emergence of under-the-radar horror films that have left a lasting impact on viewers.

Titles such as His House, The Strays and Unlocked have all been praised for their frightening scenes.

Now, another movie has been discovered, and apparently, it’s leaving viewers traumatised.

Watch the trailer for the film that is ‘traumatising’ viewers below…

Splice is a horror starring Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Dead) as two scientists who begin experimenting with DNA to create a human-animal hybrid.

Despite being told by their employers that they need to shut down the project, the pair continue to work on it in secret.

Eventually, they develop a creepy living-and-breathing female creature named Dren, and the two scientists become ‘parents’ to it.

However, as with any scientific project in a horror film – Dren starts to go rogue and trouble starts to brew.

Splice has a respectable 75 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes and was received positively by audiences.

However, it only made $27.1 million at the box office on a budget of $30 million.

Despite the movie being 13 years old, it has recently found life on streaming services and viewers are taking to social media to react to it.

One person says: “Just watched Splice, I am disturbed for life.”

Another viewer adds: “I saw it when it first came out in 2010. It is the MOST disturbing movie I’ve ever seen.”

Someone else describes Splice as ‘the most f***ed up movie’ they have ever watched.

A fourth person asks: “I don’t know why they decided to let that traumatic movie available for all.”

While another viewer pens: “Scared me s***less.

“The ending left me traumatised. I love the ConjuringParanormal movies but this is the most upsetting by far!”

However, not everyone is sharing the same sentiment as other viewers.

Someone comments: “Wow, just read a little story about people who watched Splice on Netflix… a horror movie, they are complaining about a horror movie being traumatising… IT’S A HORROR MOVIE!!!”

“If you are that much of a wallflower just don’t watch horror movies.”

Another person agrees by adding: “[People] are scared of movies like Splice on Netflix.

“They are so sensitive is hilarious. Get some thicker skin kids.”

Splice is available on Netflix Canada and can be streamed on Amazon Prime in the UK.

However, it is only available to be purchased in the US.
