Someone else said: “I’m screaming! Nurse Ratched is really coming!”

A fifth admitted: “I don’t know why I’m tweeting like I’m not scared.”

Others were simply excited to see more of the iconic villain, whom Louise Fletcher played in the 1975 film.

“I am so so excited for this,” said one Netflix fan. “Not only do I adore Sarah Paulson, but this already looks insanely incredible. I was holding my breath through the whole trailer because I’m already so stunned by it.”

An origin story

Ratched will serve as an origin story for the murderous nurse by following her progression through the mental health-care system.

The series will tell its story across eight parts. Other stars include Alfred Rubin Thompson, Sharon Stone, Judy Davis and Cynthia Nixon.

It will be one of a number of films and TV shows added to the platform that have caused a stir this year.

Horror film Our House landed on the platform in June and disturbed a whole new raft of viewers, following its original release in 2018.
