The nights are starting to draw in, and we all know what that means. Time for a movie night!
Luckily, we have just the film. Check out the trailer below:
With Married At First Sight and the new season of The Great British Bake-Off bringing the more light-hearted - if still dramatic - content, then Netflix is the place to turn for something a bit grittier.
The streaming service recently added a new drama-thriller, and it's already shot up the Top 10 list to second place - beaten only by Clifford The Big Red Dog. I guess dog content will always win.
Still, viewers are raving over the new film, which is titled Accused and stars Sex Education actor Chaneil Kular, as well as Frances Tomelty and Nitin Ganatra.
Labelled by Netflix as 'gritty' and 'suspenseful', Accused tells the story of a man who is wrongly accused of carrying out a 'horrific' crime online.
As a result, a synopsis says, 'violent vigilantes invade his family home, forcing him to fight for his life'.
At just 1 hour 27 minutes long you won't feel like you've lost half a day to the film, but it's still managing to grip viewers every second of the way.
In fact, one person said it brought an intensity they'd never felt before.
"Omggg everyone needs to watch Accused on Netflix, this has been the most intense hour of my life," they wrote.
Other Netflix users have also flooded to social media to share their praise, with one viewer writing: "Accused on Netflix is absolutely brilliant, 12/10!!! We weren’t breathing the whole time."
"If you haven’t watched Accused on Netflix you really should. A stunning performance from
@Chaneil_Kular - just brilliant," said another.
As well as praising the film for its 'intense' scenes, fans have also noticed that it draws on issues that very much exist in the real world.
"‘Accused’ on Netflix is phenomenal. Tense af but made me cry because of the sad reality," one viewer wrote.
Another added: "Everyone should watch Accused on Netflix. Shows the scary reality of social media and the media. (Although far too tense for a Monday night)."
"‘Accused’ on Netflix is actually 10/10, tense af but so gripping and the reality of it is so important.
"Goes to show social media can be a bloody scary place. Defo worth a watch," wrote a third.
You might need to plan a way to wind-down afterwards, but it seems like Accused will be worth it!
