What is Netflix’s German horror movie Old People about?

Respect your elders…unless they’re trying to kill you like in Netflix’s new German horror movie old people. Yes, it’s called “Old People”, and the plot is as simple as you’d expect: a group of old people go on a murderous rampage. The trailer hints at more than that, but that’s the gist of it presented by the Netflix logline.

This German feature from Andy Fetscher should appeal to anyone who likes slasher movies similar to the fear street trilogy, Shuteither The strangers. Remember how terrifying Stephen Lang was in do not breathe? Or the cultists of midsummer? Good, old people seems to tap into a similar vibe.

She returns to her hometown with her two children to attend her sister’s wedding, but things quickly go haywire when she has to protect them from the elders in a murder spree. If you watch the trailer, there also seems to be an ancient relic (isn’t there always?) at the center of everything that could be related to why the elders are trying to kill everyone.

Unfortunately, Netflix has not shared the trailer on YouTube, but you can watch it from the official Netflix page of the film.
