Director: Matt and Ross Duffer
Year Released: 2015
Some terrifying virus has affected the Planet Earth (this is pre-COVID-19 too!) which has forced a family of three, Ray (Alexander Skarsgård), Claire (Andrea Riseborough) and their daughter Zoe (Emily Alyn Lind), to take shelter and try to survive on the provisions left behind, but creatures called "The Breathers" lurk all around them. This may be familiar territory story-wise and not all that clever (the "twist" doesn't really amount to much), but it does show off competent filmmaking skills from the Duffer Bros., who show empathy for the fears of children (especially concern over being abandoned) and make do with being basically confined to a small setting for the majority of the time. It also exists as a warm-up for Stranger Things, which is a much richer and more developed narrative (albeit that's a TV show instead of a 90-minute feature).
