Netflix has made a low 'seven figure deal' to the film rights for a horror story named "My Wife and I Bought a Ranch," which was posted in six instalments in the Reddit forum NoSleep. The story was written by Matt Query.
Query posted his tale of terror on the r/Nosleep subreddit, a popular space for users to share their original horror stories. It tells the story of a couple, named Harry and Sasha, who buy their dream ranch in rural Idaho but soon discover that they're not alone in the mountains.
The first part of the story has received more than 3000 upvotes over the past five months, with Part II: The Lights, Part III: The Bear Chase, Part IV: The Scarecrows, and Part V: The Ghosts Arrive also became popular among the readers.
