When Stephen King recommends a new horror show, it’s always worth paying attention.
On Thursday night, the legendary writer took a break from his Trump-bashing antics to tweet about a Netflix series he’s been enjoying.
If you’re one of those sickos—like me—who enjoys being scared, MARIANNE (Netflix) will do the job. There are glints of humor that give it a STRANGER THINGS vibe. It also has (I say it with all due modesty) a Stephen King vibe.

A Stranger Things AND a Stephen King vibe. Where do we sign up?
Marianne is an eight-part French series about a writer trying to escape a witch that has been shadowing her since childhood. Here’s the undeniably shudder-inducing trailer:
It looks like King isn’t the only one who found the show scary, either.
Woke up in hotel room in the middle of the night and had to watch 3 episodes of Alan Partridge to calm down after convincing self the witch from ‘Marianne’ was behind the curtains. Hi, I’m 47.
