Ma (Brie Larson) and Jack (Jacob Tremblay) are held against their own will in a 10 x 10 room. The heart-wrenching story sounds all too real, compared against horrific unreported kidnapping in the present world. Based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue, the author found her inspiration from a real-life kidnapping that took place in Austria in 2008.
DON’T BREATHE (2016)
Three thieves break into the house of a helplessly blind war veteran, thinking it would be an easy steal. The tables turn, and the thieves struggle to get out. This movie recently hit the big screens, and if you’re up for a night of breathless – I repeat, literal I-can-hear-my-blood-pumping-through-my-head breathlessless – this movie is for you.
10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (2016)
Don’t be fooled by this seemingly joyful John Goodman bobbing to tunes. Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays Michelle, a woman who wakes up in a bunker after a car crash. Howard (John Goodman) tells her the air outside is toxic – but does she just take a stranger’s word for it? This movie plays with our nerves, teetering against the edge of over-paranoia and bouncing us back to safe territory.
