Brace yourself - this definitely isn't the kind of trailer you'll want to watch with your parents still in the room.


Netflix has released the trailer for Mexican erotic drama Dark Desire ('Oscuro deseo'), with the added caveat that the show will "leave you guessing... and sweating".

Produced by Argos Comunicación for the streaming platform, the multi-episode series follows a professor caught up in her sexual obsession for a mysterious younger man, and stars Maite Perroni, Jorge Poza, and Alejandro Speitzer.

The official synopsis for the show reads, "Alma Solares, a prestigious lawyer and college professor, visits her best friend for the weekend to 'process the grief' of the latter’s divorce. During the getaway, Alma meets Dario Guerra, a 23-year-old, and they have a wild tryst.

"She returns home with her husband and daughter, determined to forget her lapse in judgment, but her life becomes a living hell. What started as a minor adventure becomes an incendiary passion, and then a dangerous obsession, unraveling a chain of secrets of a past that fatally binds them all."

The trailer, which you can watch below, shows Alma as she indulges in a wild fling before the same man rocks up to her college class, unnerving her.

The clip also teases a murder that connects both Alma and Dario in some way, with the suggestion being that their fling wasn't quite as spontaneous as Alma originally believed.

Intrigued? You needn't hang around, as Netflix dropped the show on its streaming platform earlier today, to coincide with the release of the trailer.
