New to Netflix: In this horror thriller, your new home becomes a death trap – cinema news

Today, August 4th, 2021, the horror thriller “Aftermath” will start exclusively on Netflix, in which a quarreling couple want to start over in a new house, only to be met with pure horror there.

So the two move without further ado – but in their new home, which has a dark past, Natalie is soon afflicted by eerie events that nobody really wants to believe at first…

The horror thriller Aftermath premieres on Netflix on August 4, 2021.
