One of Netflix’s newest original series, Dark, is aimed at engrossing fans of Stranger Things and Twin Peaks. But if watching a German show with English subtitles still feels like too much effort, perhaps the glowing recommendation from IGN below will change your mind. For starters, they describe Dark as “a more mature version of Stranger Things,” one that features swearing, nudity, and serious gore FX.
Dark is also declared technically superior to Stranger Things in terms of cinematography, character development, and emotional impact. I’m sold! Check out IGN’s video below; after that, you can see the trailer and read the official synopsis for Dark. Enjoy!
