These undiscovered and unappreciated shows will leave you speechless.
With the highest possible critics' scores on Rotten Tomatoes, it's hard to believe that these gripping shows haven't taken over the Netflix Top 10 list at least once since their release. Maybe they are too different, too dubbed, or just too uninspired,
We can't say for sure why they haven't been watched, but we can say that they deserve a spot on your watchlist.
The Order (2019-2020)
Critics 100%/Audience 71%
A dark comedy disguised as a fantasy horror, The Order stands out from other works in its genre with cringey teen dilemmas and truly unique details woven into the plot as it follows Jack Morton, a young student who joins a secret society to learn how to practice magic while battling vampires, werewolves, and boyish crushes.
Despite its lesser-known cast and lack of publicity, The Order is well worth a look, managing to deliver an exciting story despite the tired "school of magic" trope, as well as a truly unexpected twist at the end.
The Chestnut Man (2021-present)
Critics 100%/Audience 79%
Even those who have scoured the horror section in search of a chilling new tale have probably not come across this slow-burn Scandinavian horror that follows two detectives as they try to solve a string of grisly murders, with the only clue being a small chestnut figurine left at each scene and a link to a politician's missing child.
Free of commercial clichés until the gory ending, The Chestnut Man is tense and intricate, and sure to send shivers down your spine.
Dear Child (2023)
Critics 100%/Audience 85%
One of the more recently released series on this list, Dear Child begins with Lena in captivity, followed by her traumatic escape after 13 years, but her ordeal is far from over. Lena and her daughter Hannah take center stage in this tense German drama-mystery, as the story's twists and turns continue to unfold through harrowing flashbacks that raise more questions than answers.
The Snow Girl (2023)
Critics 100%/Audience 85%
Another newer release and another gripping disappearance takes place in The Snow Girl, as a magical parade soon turns into a nightmare for the family of a young girl who goes missing. When a trainee journalist steps in to help, she is forced to confront the demons of her own past that surface in her desperate search for the truth.
The Snow Girl is emotional and gripping, and a highly bingeable story that should not be missed just because it is dubbed.
Rough Diamonds (2023)
Critics 100%/Audience 87%
Another series from Yuval Yefet (of Fauda fame) that has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Rough Diamonds is the story of a Noah who returns home to his ultra-Orthodox Jewish family to pick up the pieces after his brother's suicide and save the family's lucrative diamond business.
Filled with unresolved family drama and shady business dealings, Rough Diamonds cuts through the red tape of the Belgian diamond industry with complex characters, suspenseful storylines, and gritty drama.
Red Rose (2022)
Critics 100%/Audience 55%
Psychological teen thriller centered around a group of friends who become entangled in a dark situation after one of the group downloads an app called Red Rose, which quickly becomes sinister and intelligent. Perhaps missing the momentum after more mainstream films like Countdown and Nerve, Red Rose manages to delve deeper into the genre and unravel a sinister backstory that explains the origins of the dark app.
Travelers (2016 - 2018)
Critics 100%/Audience 97%
Operatives from a post-apocalyptic future travel back in time to the 21st century in the hopes of stopping the events that lead to their apocalypse. Travelers explores the idea of sending consciousness back, as random people’s bodies are taken over by the travelers in their bid to change the course of human history through numerous secret missions.
The show's daunting complexity may be the reason it has flown under the radar for so long. But its 100% and 97% Rotten Tomatoes scores are a testament to its exciting and engaging plot, stellar acting, and unique concept around time travel.
