Spectros is a Brazilian supernatural thriller streaming television series that premiered on Netflix on February 20, 2020.[1] The seven-episode series is run by writer-director Douglas Petrie and produced by Moonshot Pictures.[2][3]

According to Doug Petrie, the series is a mix of Brazilian folklore and history, with elements of Japanese ghost tales, represented by the colourful streets of Liberdade district, home to the largest Japanese community outside Japan in the world.[4]

Plot[edit]

The show is in the Liberdade district in São Paulo. Spectros tells the story of a group of five teenagers who are accidentally attracted to a supernatural reality that they can not comprehend and that connects to the same location of the city in 1908. When confronted by increasingly bizarre and gloomy events, the group comes to an inevitable conclusion: someone is bringing the dead back, and the spirits want revenge for the mistakes committed in the past.[5]
