Annihilation - Quick Review

Friday, July 6, 2018

A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.*

Annihilation is a beautiful and suspenseful sci fi/horror art film that requires multiple views in order to fully appreciate it. Many of the scenes that take place in the Shimmer look like art installations, which is great, but (for me at least), it does become a bit of a distraction. I found myself paying more attention to what was on the screen than to the story itself. It is definitely a weird little movie that is not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

Rating: 7/10
