If you like your spooky viewing to have a sprinkle of science and imagination, Annihilation fits the bucket! The core events in this sci-fi horror film stemmed out from the collision of a meteor on the Earth’s surface creating a novel and unknown biome from the impact site which they called “The Shimmer”. The collision has resulted in the deformation of the pre-existing creatures on the impact site making them horrendous and creepy monsters. To know more about “The Shimmer”, a group of military scientists were sent out to observe the site. Upon entering, they saw deformed creatures while slowly losing track of the true stretch of time. The story gets wild as the exploration turns into a battle for life.

This Netflix Original is a fresh theme for horror films. Although this movie has no “run for your life” moments or sort of axe and chainsaw massacres, it can dig deeper into your bones as it can happen in real life. Alice is a cam girl who wanted to climb the top rank. It is her ambition. Just as when she was about to reach her goal, her identity was stolen by someone that is unknown. Cam’s theme and scenes are relevant and realistic enough to make you feel scared about being online.
