1899, the new Netflix series from Dark creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, gets an anxiety-inducing trailer.

Cruises are often nothing fun, especially when the supernatural takes precedence over reason during perilous sea crossings that plunge crew and passengers into utter horror. No need for the Bermuda Triangle to feed the imagination of the scriptwriters during this type of journey, it is enough to transpose these trips to the heart of a past no more distant than that of the 19th century, like the well-designed fort The Terror (at least in its first season), in an era of restricted communications, still steeped in popular superstitions and myths.

Superstitions and myths were not necessarily the watchwords of the brilliant Darkoriginally, though the community described by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar held untold secrets and was also stricken with otherworldly evil. And precisely, the two screenwriters have apparently chosen to adopt a similar approach on the occasion of their new creation, 1899, to tell a sea crossing that turns into a nightmare. In fact, the trailer for the series has just been unveiled by Netflix.

As with some artists, the eschatological visions emanating from the end of the century seem to have particularly inspired Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar for 1899, both a twilight atmosphere weighs on this trailer, even if the apocalypse should only fall on a restricted environment here.These first images promise an anxiety-provoking atmosphere for both the spectator and the passengers,prisoners of a boat in the throes of a possible curse.

The bad encounter with the Prometheus and his secret threatens to shatter the relationship between these travelers in road to a better world. Indeed, at first glance, Prometheus does not, in this case, bring fire to comfort humanity, but rather to destroy it. The trailer focuses in particular on a curious pyramid-shaped object, perhaps the source of the evil that is eating away at the ship and its occupants. But, in addition to the mysteries that strike the expedition, it is indeed the links woven by this community that should interest the showrunners of the series, like their previous baby, Dark.

With this trailer, 1899 raises a lot of expectations and we hope for a program of a quality at least equivalent to < strong>Dark. The series will land on Netflix on November 17, 2022.
