And if you're an American Horror Story fan, this one is definitely for you.

The prequel series is set in 1947 and focuses on Mildred Ratched (played by Sarah Paulson) before she became the cold-hearted mental health nurse portrayed in the novel.

As Netflix explain: "The series is set to be an origin story of sorts taking us back to before Nurse Ratched had evolved to the monster by exploiting people in the mental health care system."

The psychological drama sees Mildred arrive in northern California in 1947, looking for employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.

Although Nurse Ratched portrays herself as everything a professional and dedicated nurse should be, she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it.

As Netflix explain, "Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born."

Others meanwhile agreed the creepy show is terrifying, with one writing: "Sarah Paulson is terrifying, I don't think I'll be able to unsee her brilliant Performance in #Ratched."

Speaking to Vanity Fair about Nurse Ratched's character, Sarah previously said: "I identified very deeply with her loneliness. I think ultimately at the end of the day, that is sort of what drives Mildred.

"A pursuit of survival and of finding some sense of home. Even though the methods that she chooses to achieve that internal security are somewhat questionable, I would argue that she's doing them with a potentially selfish need, but a survival need nevertheless.

"Sort of an animal need that blinds her to the inappropriateness of some her actions."
