Death Note

Netflix just showed off its trailer for the live-action adaptation of horror anime Death Note. Slated for release later this year, the film is directed by Adam Wingard.

Here’s the trailer:

Death Note is about a teenaged boy who mysteriously acquires a book that kills anyone whose name is written in it. Flush with power, the boy goes on a killing spree of criminals. Ryuk, the demon who dropped the book on Earth out of pure boredom, will be voiced by Willem Dafoe.

Only a few years after release, it’s become a classic horror anime. Hopefully, the movie won’t butcher the series.
