The spookiest opener in television history successfully sings the brains of horror diehards

from game of Thrones to breaking Bad, the television landscape is a resilient village of unforgettable series that leave a lasting impression on telephiles as far as the eye can see. With that in mind, these hit shows all present an opening sequence that’s officially seared into the brains of the most devoted tube fanatics – especially when it comes to elements of horror. That’s exactly the case with HBO’s fresh drama series The last of uswhich has successfully attracted the attention of the masses.

In fact, the response to the drama series’ pilot has become so overwhelming that the show’s opening scene even had an impressive impact on horror fandom — with one user specifically posting the scene on a Reddit thread, discussing the opener’s divine inspiration about society and the “disturbing” reality of the times we are living in right now.

It took less than an hour for other users to flock to the comments section, with a large handful of horror fanatics celebrating the opener’s spooky atmosphere and how incredibly quick the sequence set up events within the show. Unsurprisingly, commentators noted that the moment bears specific similarities to contemporary angst over the COVID-19 pandemic, callbacks to other projects, its strong “horror” vibe, and the grave threat of global warming.

Interestingly, the critically acclaimed series doesn’t necessarily fit into the horror category, instead touching on elements of sci-fi. But judging by the sheer fear the opener instilled in many people, the show may reach horror heights it never quite imagined.

The last of us is currently available to stream on HBO Max, with episodes airing weekly. The spookiest opener in television history successfully sings the brains of horror diehards
