The latest psychological thriller to Netflix is flooring viewers worldwide.
Although the film - written, produced and directed by Tyler Perry - was first released in 2018, Netflix has given it a much-needed revival and fans are going 'wild' for it. Check out the trailer below:
The Netflix synopsis for the American thriller reads: "Melinda spirals into a vindictive rage when she discovers that the husband she supported - financially and faithfully - for years has betrayed her."
Starring the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Lyriq Bent and Crystle Stewart, the thriller follows the life of couple Melinda and Robert.
Starting off as high-school sweethearts, the film takes viewers through Melinda's journey from first falling in love to playing the dutiful role of the perfect wife for Robert.
From financial sacrifice to emotional labour, tension comes to a boiling point when Melinda realises that Robert had another woman in his life reaping the rewards of her own sacrifices.
Exploring themes of jealousy, rage, betrayal and infidelity all against the backdrop of a relationship breakdown - it's no wonder than Acrimony has landed the accolade of Netflix's Top 10 in the UK.
Fans have been quick to share their thoughts on the chilling Tyler Perry film.
One Twitter user commented: "I watched Acrimony on Netflix, my jaw is still on the floor."
Another tweeted: "That movie Acrimony on Netflix is one wild ride."
Shocked by the twist at the end, a third revealed: "Acrimony on Netflix was going okay until the wild ass ending … I don't know how Tyler Perry is allowed to make films."
