"True monsters are made, not born."

There's a new horror series coming to Netflix, and the trailer alone has got the hair on the back of our necks standing up. Titled Ratched, the show stars American Horror Story queen Sarah Paulson as the titular asylum nurse from hell.

Set in 1947, Ratched tells the origin story of Mildred Ratched a.k.a the iconic nurse from the 1975 fictional thriller film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Originally played by Louise Fletcher, Mildred's characterization drew great infamy for being a cold and heartless head nurse of a psychiatric ward. She held a terrifying tyrannical rule and often brutally punished patients that didn't fall into her favor.

Netflix's prequel delves into Mildred's early days as well as the events that led her to becoming the cruel nurse that she was. The show's official synopsis reads: "Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind. On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born."

The trailer for Ratched shows Mildred slowly uncovering her malicious intentions while we see numerous cuts of her patients and fellow co-workers being tortured or "medically treated" in a disturbing manner. Suffice to say, we're more than intrigued by what we've seen so far.

Watch the full trailer below.

Joining Sarah in the cast are Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Sharon Stone as Lenore Osgood, Jon Jon Briones as Dr. Richard Hanover, Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson, Charlie Carver as Huck, Alice Englert as Dolly, and Amanda Plummer as Louise.
