I would categorize Annihilation as a horror movie, but also a fantasy as well as a thriller. This horror / thriller movie gives you a peak into an imaginative world filled with breathtaking creations.

Christ Stuckmann does a great job at reviewing this movie in one of his Youtube videos. Check out his review here.

This Netflix horror follows four men attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas as they are enticed by two sexy escorts to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture. If you’ve watched the first 2 Hostel films, you’re bound to love this one. I think this is by far the scariest movie I’ve ever watched. It’s quite grotesque, so if you’re not one for the eerie details – you better stay away!

I am an avid fan of Jigsaw. I know, creepy. I’ve literally watched all nine feature films. As you can expect, the first one is always the best one – but that’s not the one that’s available on Netflix (you want might to stream it). In all nine feature films, the plot always follows a group of people who find themselves forced to participate in a series of deadly “games” that Jigsaw (the criminal) curates based on what he feels every victim deserves. Definitely worth the watch!
