Not Sure If You Can Handle the Gore in Netflix's Ratched? Here's a Guide
Although Ryan Murphy is also the mind behind American Horror Story, rest assured that Netflix's Ratched shares only a few similarities with the horror anthology series; like the stunning costumes, the featured actors, and its aptly timed gore. The show, which is a prequel to the popular Ken Kesey novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, follows Nurse Mildred Ratched in 1947 as she seeks employment at a Northern California psychiatric hospital.
With its star-studded cast, including a few familiar AHS favorites, there are a few thrills every now and again, but it's really the gore that gets us. After all, it's set in a psychiatric hospital in the '40s with a killer at its heart . . . the gore was bound to happen. If you're still on the fence about whether or not you can handle it, we've gone ahead and broken down the goriest moments so you'll be ready to stream Ratched, which is now on Netflix.
