About a year ago, a series called You was released on Netflix, and when people got word of it, it took over their lives, to say the least. The release of the show's second season is right around the corner, but in the meantime, people are looking for shows like You on Netflix Canada that they can watch.

Although there is no other show that perfectly combines Penn Badgley's good looks with Joe Goldberg's utter creepiness, there are quite a few shows on the streaming service that will definitely send chills down your spine, and maybe even keep you up at night.

While you may want to spend the next few days watching holiday movies and getting into the Christmas spirit, as soon as December 26 hits, You fans are going to go into full binge-watching mode.

Some people have their calendars marked for Boxing Day, but others are more excited to see what sorts of trouble Joe will get into this season.

Netflix released the official trailer for the series today, and while it's utterly chilling and creepy, there's only so many times you can watch it, so here are some totally creepy shows on the platform that are worth checking out.

13 Reasons Why

Rating: 38% on Rotten Tomatoes

13 Reasons Why has become a pretty controversial show over the years, but you can't deny that it's very haunting. The series follows a group of high school students as they try to cope after a friend's shocking suicide.

The show's first three seasons are available and the final fourth season has been confirmed, although there is no release date yet.

How to Get Away with Murder

Rating: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

If you love other Shonda Rhimes shows like Scandal or Grey's Anatomy, you need to add How to Get Away with Murder to your list ASAP. 

The show's first five seasons are available for streaming right now, and they tell the story of a criminal defence lawyer and professor who, while teaching her students, also manages to get them entangled in a messy murder.

What/If

Rating: 42% on Rotten Tomatoes

What/If hit Netflix back in May of this year, and marked Renée Zelwegger's return to the big screen. The series has been described as a "neo-noir" social thriller and tells the story of a venture capitalist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Dirty John

Rating: 71% on Rotten Tomatoes

Dirty John is creepy enough on its own, but when you remember that the series is based on a true story, it becomes even more chilling. The first season of the show follows a woman named Debra who finds herself in a relationship with John, a manipulative man who makes a bad impression on her entire family.

The troubling relationship almost tears Debra's family apart, until she sees John for who he really is. Season 2 has been confirmed by the streaming platform.

Mindhunter

Rating: 97% on Rotten Tomatoes

If you love to hear about serial killers, you need to watch Mindhunter. The series tells the story of how the term "serial killer" was coined by two FBI agents years ago.

Not only is the storyline amazing, but the casting for the show is incredible — you'll be totally blown away by their take on Charles Manson and other notorious criminals.

The Sinner

Rating: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

The Sinner is an anthology series that follows Detective Harry Ambrose as he studies horrendous murder crimes and tries to piece together why seemingly normal people commit them.

The first two seasons of the show are available now, with season three premiering in February of 2020.

The Haunting of Hill House

Rating: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

The Haunting of Hill House is more than just a psychological thriller — it's an actual horror series that's definitely going to keep you on the edge of your seat.

The show's second season, The Haunting of Bly Manor is said to be even scarier than the first and will be hitting Netflix sometime in 2020.
