It will feature Barrera as a New York City lawyer who must battle for survival in the Canadian wilderness following a harrowing plane crash.
Known for her role in the slasher franchise Scream, Barrera was one of the very few Ghostface survivors. Since she survived the deranged killer, viewers are hoping for her new avatar to make it out of the woods safely as well. The first-look images released by Netflix promise unhinged tension and chaos as the lone survivor tries desperately to “keep breathing.”
