Movies Like Annihilation

by All Horror on October 01st, 2018 | |

Annihilation is the second feature film from director Alex Garland, starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Issac. It is a sci-fi thriller following a scientist who is called to venture into an alien new territory off the coast of Florida. After a comet hit the beach a strange prism-like veil has spread across a national forest, changing the wildlife within. As she enters the area with her team their DNA itself begins to refract and they encounter mashed-up monsters and evidence that previous teams went mad. The film is a slow burn that relies on a creep factor and deep mystery to hold the audience.
