I’ve by no means been further scared of Sarah Paulson than I’m at once after watching her change into Nurse Mildred Ratched for Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan’s ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST origin collection RATCHED. For actual. I can abdomen absolutely anything, however there are pictures and scenes on this new trailer which have creeped me right out of my shivering pores and skin.
Here’s Netflix’s official logline for RATCHED:

On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the proper picture of what a devoted nurse needs to be, however the wheels are all the time turning and as she begins to infiltrate the psychological health care system and people inside it, Mildred’s trendy exterior belies a rising darkness that has lengthy been smoldering inside, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.
While I’m not sure that RATCHED is for me, I do discover the general look of the reveal to be trendy and hypnotic. I additionally admire the malice that Paulson is channeling whereas depicting a younger Nurse Ratched, whose time at battle has clearly warped her in ways in which have left her scarred and unhinged. I can just think about the nightmare eventualities her sufferers will endure all through the course of this collection, and although they’re fictional characters, I really feel for all of them the similar.
