The Rain is a new post-apocalyptic Netflix show. The release won’t be until sometime during Spring 2018. However, you can watch the first teaser trailer here!

In The Rain, two young siblings embark on a perilous search for safety, after a brutal virus wipes out most of the population. Sounds like something horror fans should love!

This is the plot of the new Netflix show:

The world as we know it has ended. The story takes place six years after a brutal virus, carried by the rain, wiped out almost all human beings in Scandinavia. Two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilization to be gone. Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.

Set free from their collective past and societal rules the group has the freedom to be who they want to be. In their struggle for survival, they discover that even in a post-apocalyptic world there’s still love, jealousy, and coming-of-age. Many of the problems they thought they’d left behind with the disappearance of the world they once knew.

Who will you be when the rain comes?

Admittedly, there are elements that sound a lot like The 100, but this should be quite different. At least we hope so!

Watch the teaser trailer for THE RAIN below:

I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
