NETFLIX fans were left ‘struggling to breathe’ after the release of a terrifying trailer for new horror movie Oxygen.
Alexandre Aja, 42, who worked on Piranha 3D directs the new creepy flick which is set to hit the giant streaming platform in May.
French actress Mélanie Laurent, 38, plays a woman who is trapped in a medical cocoon of some sort and has no idea why she is there.
However, she cannot afford to waste time as she notices a dial which tells her she is gradually running out of air.
Will she find a way to survive?
Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the spine-tingling trailer.
One viewer penned: “Ugh something so claustrophobic about this, literally made me feel like I can’t breathe.”
Another added: “Basically held my breath for this whole trailer haha, I’m such a wimp.”
A third user wrote: “Nah this is the kind of film that’ll make me hyperventilate, the trailer was bad enough [shaking my head].”
While another wrote: “Something weirdly artsy about this, but being stuck in a pod like that is still the stuff of nightmares.”
Oxygen was written by Christie LeBlanc, and the cast also features Mathieu Amalric, 55, and Malik Zidi, 46.

It was reported earlier today that Netflix users who share their passwords with friends and family are facing a crackdown launched by the US streaming giant.
The company is testing a feature designed to root out account sharers, meaning that if you borrow someone’s login, you may soon have to pay for your own account in full instead.
Viewers are reportedly given the option to verify their identity through a code sent to the account’s owner, or can choose to complete the process later.
In a statement, Netflix said: “This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorised to do so.”
