Netflix’s ‘Death Note’ teaser leaves fans with mixed feelings


Death Note Netflix trailer

Netflix has unveiled a 1-minute teaser for the live-action adaptation of Death Note. The famous horror manga, written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, originally took place in the Kanto region of Japan, but now the Shinigami (Grim Reaper) has dropped the Death Note in a new region, wreaking havoc in America.

Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural book, that holds great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with the god-like abilities the Death Note gives him, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

The Netflix Original adaptation is brought to life by Director Adam Wingard who is known for is work on the creepy films, Blair Witch, The Guest, V/H/S and You’re Next. The feature film stars Nat Wolff (Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns) as Light, Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Short Term 12) as L, and Willem Dafoe as the Shinigami, Ryuk. 

Since its release, the teaser has garnered mixed reactions from fans of the manga and anime series, with some excited for what is to come, and others wishing Netflix had left well enough alone.
