Netflix has also released a sneak peek, in which Suzanne goes looking for the Dodd family. She’s found their mailbox but can’t find their house. “You should be on the way,” she’s warned. “Go home.” And men watch here until she drives off.

In Devil in Ohio, psychiatrist Suzanne Mathis’ world is turned upside down when protecting Mae. Jules suspects there’s more to Mae’s story, then a series of incidents seemingly brought on by the teen’s presence leave the family in chaos. The Mathis family must fight to survive against a strange cult, and Suzanne and a local police detective try to unravel the clues of Mae’s past and sinister happenings in the town she escaped.
