The infamous Fyre Festival scam was basically a horror show, but Netflix's newest series is drawing inspiration from it and making it even more demented. On Tuesday, August 20, the streaming service premiered the trailer for The I-Land, which takes place in a glossy, Instagram-ready beach setting not unlike those misleading Fyre Festival promo ads. But much like the fake music festival that never was, things on "the I-Land" aren't what they seem—and pretty soon the plot goes down a dark, warped path.
Based on the show's official synopsis, it's going to be creepy AF: "When 10 people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home. They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves—or die as their worst ones."
What that means is unclear. Do some of these "extreme psychological challenges" have to do with not getting enough likes on a post? Being passed over for a spon-con opportunity? Forgetting the password to your IG account? The possibilities are endless.
We kid, we kid. Watch the actual horrifying events of The I-Land in the trailer, below.
Yikes. The show definitely has a terrifying doomsday vibe as it goes from sun-kissed sand coasts and hot people jumping off yachts to explosions, fires, and actual screaming. The limited series' seven-episode arc will star Kate Bosworth, Natalie Martinez, and Alex Pettyfer, who play some of the characters struggling to get the hell off this nightmarish island. We're essentially getting an eerie combination of Black Mirror, Lost, The Hunger Games, Scream, and an Instagram influencer's feed, and we cannot wait. So mark your calendars: It's going to drop on September 12.
