‘The Occupant’ is Netflix’s new stalker thriller which drops this month

It’s being compared to You, so I’m listening

It seems like a million years ago when season two of You was dropped on Netflix and everyone binge watched it as soon as they could. But it looks as though the You shaped hole in our hearts is about to be filled by a brand new Netflix thriller called The Occupant.

The Occupant follows a once successful advertising executive, Javier Munoz, who is forced to sell the apartment he and his family are living in when they can no longer afford it. It takes a turn when Javier realises he still has a set of keys to the apartment and decides to stalk the new residents. He becomes obsessed with getting what he still sees as “his” home back and getting his old life back too.

His motives deepen and the harrowing and chilling thriller takes a lot of twists and turns as we follow Javier’s creepy quest. The Netflix synopsis for the film says: “An unemployed advertising executive begins stalking the new tenants of his former home and his motives toward the family turn sinister.”

The one hour and 43 minute long film is listed on Netflix as a “psychological thriller”, so fans of You and The Stranger are going to love it. It’s also listed as a “suspenseful crime film”. It is a Spanish film, and will be available on March 25th.

The Occupant will be available on Netflix on March 25th. For all the latest Netflix news, drops and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
