Watch Netflix’s ‘Death Note’ Trailer Here And Get Ready For Goosebumps!

What if you had the power to decide who lives and who dies?

The second we found out that this Netflix original is directed by Adam Wingard (director behind The Blair Witch Project, we were 100% sold.

Based on the famous Japanese Manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

Starring a cast we should all be familiar with by now: Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).

Death Note will premiere exclusively on Netflix on August 25th.
