There’s nothing like a nail-biting survival thriller to keep you on the edge of your seat. However, Netflix viewers who’ve watched the movie “Fall” that was recently added to the streaming service aren’t exhilarated, they’re “sick to their stomachs.” Yes, it really is that terrifying.
“Fall” is a movie with a unique premise. BFFs Becky (Grace Caroline Currey) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner) decide to climb to the top of a 2,000-foot abandoned radio tower to spread the ashes of Becky’s late husband Dan, who died while climbing. Unfortunately, they get stranded at the top of the tower when a rung breaks off below them, blocking their way back down.
Things get progressively worse from there, with every possible thing that could go wrong doing just that. If you have a fear of heights or hate feeling dread in the pit of your stomach for the better part of two hours, this can be a hard watch.
“Fall” is a different kind of horror movie
“Almost every single shot from Fall (2022) – a film about two women who get stranded after climbing to the top of a 2000ft radio tower – will make you feel a bit wobbly,” the official Netflix Twitter account warned fans. Of course, not everyone heeded the company’s warning.
After watching “Fall,” many fans have taken to social media to discuss the movie. “Fall on Netflix is one of the most terrifying films I’ve seen in my entire life and I love horror. No blood, no gore, just horrific anxiety throughout watching those two girls try and survive. It’s just awful. A one time only watch as my palms are now sweating!” one person wrote.
Another added: “I’ve always found it difficult to describe my random fear/anxiety of heights, tall objects and large open spaces from above. Fall on Netflix is basically it, my hands were sweaty and vertigo kicked in just watching it.”
Incidentally, it’s gotten pretty good reviews from critics, as well. It’s currently at 79% on Rotten Tomatoes.
