Video

An erotic Netflix sequel has received a seriously impressive zero percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film? 365 Days: This Day, a sequel to 2020 movie 365 Days. The premise icks up the twisted relationship between mafia crime lord Massimo [Michele Morrone] and Laura, a woman whom he kidnaps [Anna-Maria Sieklucka].

In the original film, which similarly received a zero percent on Rotten Tomatoes, Massimo promises to let Laura go if she doesn’t fall in love with him within a year.

As can only be expected, Laura, falls for Massimo, but her fantasy of running off with him is shattered when a rival mafia family appears to put a hit on Laura.

The description for the new sequel reads, “Laura and Massimo are back and stronger than ever. However, Massimo's family ties and a mysterious man bidding for Laura's heart complicate the lovers' lives.”

On Twitter, fans weren't as impressed with the movies.

"Watching 365 Days: This Day, I can’t stop laughing it’s more like a long music video than a movie wth," wrote one person.

Another tweet on the social media platform read: “It’s 90 percent sex scenes and 10 percent plot, but am also confused abt the plot like whutt.”

Someone else said, "365 days: this day, you disappointed me. It was literally 90% sex scenes w/ 10% plot. and idek what that 10% was?"

In the past, Welsh pop singer Duffy wrote an open letter to Netflix, accusing the platform of glamorising sexual violence against women.

She wrote an open letter to Reed Hastings, the head of Netflix. "'365 Days’ glamorizes the brutal reality of sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape. This should not be anyone’s idea of entertainment, nor should it be described as such, or be commercialised in this manner," read part of her letter.
