When it comes to its original horror series content, Netflix has been very successful with projects like The Haunting of Hill House, Black Summer and Stranger Things, among others.
Taking a page from its Haunted docuseries, Netflix will now bring viewers into the horror stories of people who have experienced paranormal activity in Latin American countries like Mexico and Colombia in its new, Spanish-language horror docuseries Haunted: Latin America.
In the first trailer for the series, Mexican director Adrián García Bogliano (Here Comes the Devil) introduces viewers to a group of Latinos who can’t explain some of the things that they’ve experienced—from entities inside their home to full-blown possessions.
“I was scared about the thought of imagining someone was entering the house and imagining it was something paranormal,” one of the subjects of the docuseries says in the trailer. “That house was definitely haunted.”
Along with interviews with the people who experienced the hauntings, Haunted: Latin America offers reenactments of some of the scenarios these individuals found themselves. In one scene, a demonic creature with red eyes steps into view snarling at its victims. In another, a young boy sees a person standing outside his bedroom window reaching toward him.
“My brother kept insisting that behind that window something was lurking,” a man says.
Other interviewees described what they saw and experienced as “the Devil,” “pure evil” and “a nightmare that will never end.” “It’s so mortifying, so terrifying,” a man says. “Living the way that I do isn’t easy.”
Haunted: Latin America debuts March 31 on Netflix.
