Netflix Viewers Overwhelmed by Fear

The arrival of “The Little Things” on Netflix, a 2021 psychological thriller featuring Denzel Washington, Jared Leto, and Rami Malek, has led to some viewers swiftly switching it off out of sheer terror.

The film’s intense and dark plotlines have struck a chord with audiences, prompting a wave of reactions on social media.

A Chilling Thriller

“The Little Things” revolves around a sheriff’s pursuit of a serial killer, offering a psychological and suspenseful storyline.

The film’s gripping narrative has proven too much for some Netflix viewers, who have taken to social media to express their unease.

Terrifying Moments

According to The Mirror, one viewer shared their initial experience, saying, “Watching The Little Things on Netflix, and the first two minutes are so scary, I’m not sure I can continue.”

Another viewer, equally unsettled, added, “[Two] minutes 52 seconds into [Netflix’s] The Little Things [and] it’s made me so anxious, I’ve had to turn it off.”

A Renewed Wave of Attention

Despite being released two years ago, the film’s recent addition to Netflix has brought it back into the spotlight, attracting a fresh wave of attention from audiences.

Set in 1990s Los Angeles, “The Little Things” follows detectives Denzel Washington and Rami Malek as they investigate a series of murders, eventually leading them to a “strange loner,” portrayed by Jared Leto, who may be the perpetrator.

Mixed Reviews and Recognition

Upon its original release in the United States, the film garnered mixed reviews from critics.

While many praised the stellar cast of Hollywood icons, some criticism was directed at the screenplay. Jared Leto’s performance in the movie earned him Best Supporting Actor nominations at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

However, on IMDB, the film received a rating of 6.3/10, and viewers on social media platforms had varying opinions.

Differing Opinions

Some viewers expressed their disappointment with the film, with one person advising others not to waste their time with it, citing a lack of resolution and a slow-moving plot.

Comments on the film’s YouTube trailer also reflected divided opinions.

One fan praised Jared Leto for his “amazing performance,” highlighting his portrayal of a character with a “strange and chilling” demeanor, while another viewer requested more depth and development in the character arcs.

In summary, “The Little Things” has left Netflix viewers deeply affected by its suspenseful and chilling atmosphere, prompting mixed reactions and a renewed discussion about the film’s merits and shortcomings.
