Ultraviolent Korean TV show Squid Game has become a Netflix smash hit with its story of hundreds of indebted men and women competing on a deadly game show in twisted children's games for a £27 million cash prize.

The nine-episode series has soared to number one on the streaming giant's rankings with blood-soaked scenes of bullets fired into contestants' heads, bodies piled high and graphic dissection as their organs are harvested afterwards.

Each episode revolves around a traditional Korean children's game, with some like Grandma's Footsteps and British Bulldogs, and the winners progress to the next round in a gruesome version of Takeshi's Castle.

Adding to the depravity, the contestants are poor people who are enticed to compete to win a grand prize of 45 billion won ($38m, £27m, AU$52m).
