Brand New Cherry Flavor: American Horror Story Fans Will Love Netflix's New Thriller

Horror heads, get ready. There's a new series on Netflix that is sure to have you hiding behind your pillow.

Yep, if American Horror Story and The Haunting Of Bly Manor are your cup of tea, then we can guarantee you're going to absolutely eat up the latest offering from the streamer, named Brand New Cherry Flavor.

The eight-episode thriller is set in 90s Los Angeles, and offers everything you could want from a scary movie: we're talking blood, gore and vomiting kittens.

Check out a trailer below:


It follows the lives of Lisa Nova (Rosa Salazar), who is a director with her sights on making it big.

She meets up with big-wig producer Lou Burke (Eric Lange) - and after his abusive behaviour leaves her shaken and furious, a revenge plot begins to play out.

Desperate for Lou to pay for his behaviour (which isn't that dissimilar to that of another disgraced Hollywood producer) Lisa makes a dark pledge with Satan himself.

The series also stars Catherine Keener as Boro, a woman who specialises in evil magic, and tormenting people's enemies.

But it turns out getting involved with the devil isn't actually a great idea (who'd have thought it?!), and Lisa ends up getting caught up in all the dark magic, too.

Before she knows it, she's surrounded by zombies; people all around her are eating their own eyebrows, burning alive and doing tonnes of other gruesome stuff.

Yep, you might wanna avoid eating before watching this guys, because it doesn't scrimp on the tummy-churning content...

The show is inspired by the novel of the very same name by author Todd Grimson and stars Salazar (who is best known for her role in Alita: Battle Angel), Keener (Get Out) and Lange (Narcos, alongside fellow cast-members Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) and Jeff Ward (Agents of Shield).

It was penned by show-runners Nick Antosca (Channel Zero) and Lenore Zion (Billions), and dropped last week, on Friday 13th.

Because, really, when else would it grace our screens?!
