The series 'Ratched', which is coming to Netflix soon, has gotten a seriously creepy official trailer. It is inspired by the character of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. Louise Fletcher won the Academy Award for portraying the character in the 1975 film with Jack Nicholson.
Sarah Paulson stars as Mildred Ratched, an asylum nurse, and one of cinema's most iconic villains.
Ryan Murphy is exec producer for the series. He previously created 'American Horror Story' and 'American Crime Story'.
The synopsis for the show reads: "In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.
"On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born."
The series also stars Cynthia Nixon, Sharon Stone, Alfred Rubin Thompson, Judy Davis, Jon Jon Briones, and Finn Wittrock. Corey Stoll, Sophie Okonedo, Amanda Plummer and Vincent D’Onofrio are also in the cast.
Evan Romansky created the series.
It premieres on Netflix on September 18th.
