Netflix viewers call plot twist in new high school thriller ‘the greatest in history’
Warning: Spoilers for Do Revenge ahead
People can’t help but rave about the utterly shocking plot twist in Netflix’s new high school thriller Revenge, with Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke.
After dropping last week, the movie immediately shot to the top of the Netflix charts and, from the adorable outfits to the iconic soundtrack, viewers have no bad say about it.
Check out the trailer here:
The film, which effortlessly brought back the golden age of teen movies, tells the story of Drea (Camila Mendes) and Eleanor (Maya Hawke).
Drea is basically the Regina George of her high school. She has her life totally together as an It-girl on campus until her sex tape is leaked to the entire student body – apparently by her boyfriend Max.
Meanwhile, Eleanor is an awkward new transfer who has just learned that her former bully Carissa, who started a nasty rumor about her at summer camp when she was 13, is going to her new school.
After meeting at tennis camp, the unlikely pair decide to team up to get revenge on their tormentors once and for all
For most viewers, the chemistry between Drea and Eleanor is almost too much to bear, and many fans were hoping to see their friendship turn into something more. But things take an unlikely turn.
All hopes of a romance between Drea and Eleanor were finally dashed by viewers when they were bowled over by a totally unexpected plot twist.
And if you haven’t seen the movie yet, this is your last chance to look no further!
It turns out that Eleanor had been working against her co-conspirator the entire time and had actually been plotting revenge on her new friend Drea.
You see, Drea was Eleanor’s childhood bully that summer, not Carissa, and the scorned teenager never quite let up, which created an incredible twist.
Viewers flooded the Twitter verse with rave reviews once they finished the new teen flick, and couldn’t stop talking about the surprise ending.
