Netflix viewers slam 'graphic' new thriller over lack of 'trigger warning'

Netflix viewers slam 'graphic' new thriller over lack of 'trigger warning'

They've rushed to social media to share their verdicts

From its '10/10' Scandi thrillers to its true crime series with 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes scores, it's clear that people have been absolutely loving Netflix recently.

However, it seems the streaming platform has recently rubbed some if its viewers the wrong way with some slamming a 'graphic' new thriller over its lack of 'trigger warning'.

The flick in question, which has already climbed to the prestigious spot of 'No. 1 in Films Today', boasts a star-studded cast including the likes of James McAvoy and Claire Foy.

Check out the official trailer for My Son here:

Directed by Christian Carion, the 2021 movie is an English-language remake of Carion's 2017 French film Mon garçon.

Now, My Son is a tad different from your average mystery thriller as McAvoy was not given a script or dialogue when filming and only had the knowledge of his own character's backstory to improvise his way through the film.

The plot follows McAvoy's character after he learns his son has disappeared before heading to his ex-wife's town to take the investigation into his own hands.

Viewers have been loving Netflix's latest addition, with many taking to social media to share their praise.

One X, formerly Twitter, user penned: "I’ve seen it a long time ago but My Son with James McAvoy is definitely worth a worth. Good talent when you are acting without a script. It’s on Netflix now."

A second recommended: " You need to watch My Son on Netflix. It’s No.1 film on Netflix rn it’s so good!"

"Watching My Son on Netflix... This guy is like a son of Liam Neeson and McGyver... phwoar cor blimey," a third chimed in, while a fourth echoed: "Watched a good film called My Son on Netflix tonight. Recommended!"

Others, however, took issue with the lack of 'trigger warning' beforehand as the only warning that comes up is for 'language, violence, threat' with the age rating of 15.

One person revealed: "Wow had a massive panic attack watching My Son.

"Why do Netflix not use trigger warnings?"

Another warned: "Netflix is recommending the film My Son.

"Firstly, don’t watch if you have any kind of trigger involving paedophiles. Can’t believe it didn’t come with a warning."

They added: "Nothing graphic but to me scary as hell, the intent. Also it’s a terrible bloody movie in general..! IMO."

My Son is currently available to stream on Netflix.
