Beneath Us (March 6, 2020)

Hitting the big screens today is the slasher-torture film, Beneath Us, which depicts controversial themes such as immigration and white supremacy. Nevertheless, this genre installment follows a group of construction worker’s worst nightmares, as four undocumented immigrants fight for their lives after being imprisoned underground by the rich couple who hired them. Claustrophobia, entrapment, and prevailing colonial attitudes are just a few themes that are flagged amidst this movie’s plot sequence.

The Hunt (March 13, 2020)

Are you familiar with the 1924 short story, “The Most Dangerous Game”? Well, this exciting action-horror is loosely based on the same social upheaval elitist businessmen and women hunting lower-class citizens for sport. Nevertheless, while The Hunt is a film that mirrors the conspiracy theory enveloped around big-game hunting, it also addresses issue-oriented politics in America, such as the great divide between the wealthy and the impoverished. While this cinematic feature wouldn’t usually make our must-watch, horror movie list, it’s a sick, murder fantasy that glorifies violence to the max, so why not?

A Quiet Place Part II (March 20, 2020)

Projected to be one of the best horror movies of 2020, A Quiet Place Part II follows the deadly events of the prequel, the gripping horror that made it clear that if they hear you, they hunt you. So, it’s safe to say that fans can expect to find the same silent chills in this second, fearsome installment. If you remember, the end of the first film signified that the monster’s weakness was high-frequency sound, so it appears that the new feature will focus on the events following and how the Abbott family will be forced to face the terrors of the unknown, including unforeseen horrors of this new, dystopic world.
