by Stewart Cole

Whether you like heart-pounding suspense, psychological thrillers or stories of raw human endurance, there’s something here for everyone.

1. The Immaculate Room

Initial release: February 3, 2022

Here is a psychological thriller that will leave you confused. Emil Hirsch and Kate Bosworth play a married couple who sign up for a strange experiment. The agreement? Stay in a specially designed room for 50 days without going out and they win $5 million.

But if they fail? Let’s just say the consequences aren’t pretty. It’s like a twisted version of the Squid Game, where the real challenge isn’t the restriction, but the person you’re restricted to.

2. Fall

Release date: August 12, 2022

Have you ever thought about climbing a 600 meter radio tower? No? Well, Beca and Hunter did. For Becca, it’s more than just an adrenaline rush. it’s a way of coping with the tragic loss of her husband a year ago. But as with all good thrillers, things don’t go as planned.

They are isolated at the top, surrounded by a barren wasteland and a scorching sun. The bets? High. The volume? Through the roof. And just when you think you have the plot figured out, bam! A plot twist hits you right in the feels.

3. Airplane

Release date: January 13, 2023

Picture this: a passenger plane, civilians and a criminal on board. They land on a remote island after a storm. Enter Brody Torrance, our hero, played by none other than Gerard Butler.

The man has a knack for getting out of tight spots and this movie is no exception. Stranded in hostile territory with some not-so-friendly locals? Another day in the life of Gerard. It is a fascinating story of survival on the edge of civilization. Classic butler, if you ask me.

4. Influencers

Initial release: October 16, 2022

Influencers, am I right? Madison, an influencer on a solo trip to Thailand, is lured to a remote, uninhabited island by a mysterious stranger.

She’s on the hunt for that perfect content for her followers, but what she finds is far from perfect. It’s a chilling reminder of the dangers of blind trust and curiosity. Have you ever heard the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat?” Well, Madison is about to learn that lesson the hard way.

5. Diving

Release date: August 25, 2023

The classic man vs. nature trope. So, we have these two bold sisters, Drew and May, right? They are diving enthusiasts and decide to take a dive in this remote, secret spot. But mother nature? He has other plans. A sudden landslide traps May underwater and it’s up to Drew to make a daring rescue.

Think of it as a high-stakes underwater escape room, with the added thrill of unpredictability. The suspense? Palpable. The dynamic; breathtaking. Would I watch it? In a heartbeat, especially for that big screen experience.
