NETFLIX’S Archive 81 has quickly become this year’s first must-watch horror – but some viewers aren’t happy about one fine detail.
The eagerly anticipated series landed on the streaming service last Friday, with viewers given the stark warning not to watch it alone late at night.

But some viewers aren’t happy about the ending to the eight-episode series[/caption]
In the eight-episode series, Mamoudou Athie stars as an archivist tasked with restoring a collection of tapes from the ‘90s – in turn uncovering dark truths about the building he’s working at.
According to Netflix, the creepy show is what you’d get if you combined The Blair Witch Project, Midsommar and Frequency, which will no doubt come as tempting compassion to horror lovers.
However, despite some claiming how “amazing” the new series is, others have taken to Twitter to complain about the ending.
Alongside an emoji of a confused face, one viewer penned: “Archive 81 was pretty good and is well worth a watch – despite the shoddy ending.”
Echoing their comments, someone else said: “Got so hooked on Archive 81 that I finished it in 24 hours only to be let down by a poor ending.
A third, meanwhile, praised the series for ending on a cliffhanger, adding: “Archive 81 ending on that cliffhanger has got me pumped for a second season – what a series.”
While Netflix has not officially ordered a second season, Rebecca Sonnenshine, one of the series’ showrunners, is hopeful that it will be returning to the platform.

She explained: “The idea is that we continue on with these characters into a new season should we be so lucky to get a second season.
“I think we end on a good cliffhanger that needs to be addressed, so yeah, we hope to keep going.”
