Stephen King has another Netflix recommendation for horror fans.

The legendary author tweeted on Thursday, "If you're one of those sickos - like me - who enjoys being scared, 'Marianne' (Netflix) will do the job."

"There are glints of humor that give it a 'Stranger Things' vibe," he added. "It also has (I say it with all due modesty) a Stephen King vibe."

"Marianne" is a new French horror series that premiered on Netflix on September 13. Netflix describes the series like this: "Lured back to her hometown, a famous horror writer discovers that the evil spirit who plagues her dreams is now wreaking havoc in the real world."

It has a 100% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes (based on six reviews). Bloody Disgusting call it "nightmares personified." Refinery 29 wrote that it "remains terrifying until its climactic, exorcism-filled end."

This isn't the first time King has praised Netflix's horror content. He said he was "riveted" by the movie "Bird Box" and called Netflix's hit horror series "The Haunting of Hill House" "close to a work of genius."
