Sci-Fi Horror Movies

After watching ‘Nope’, say “yes” to these films.

Sci-Fi Horror Movies – Nope, Jordan Peele’s most successful box office success to date, was released this month. The sci-fi horror movie centres on the Haywards, who run a large ranch and train their horses to act in movies and TV shows. OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) and Emerald (Keke Palmer), two siblings, come up with a scheme to keep the family business alive by recording a paranormal event after an accident puts their father unable to work.

Peele shows his love and admiration for the sci-fi horror genre like no one else, and there is a lot to appreciate, drawing inspiration from movies like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Poltergeist.

Sci-Fi Horror Movies – Here is the List

Cloverfield (2008)

The characters in this found video movie are Rob (Michael Stahl-David) and his friends, who are attending a rooftop party in New York City when they are suddenly stopped by what seems to be an earthquake. They fear and flee the structure in search of safety after seeing an explosion in the distance, only to return later to see the city being destroyed by an unidentified beast.

When Rob learns that his ex-girlfriend Beth (Odette Annable) is hurt and confined in her apartment, he rallies his friends to help. Cloverfield is a heartbreaking disaster film because the camera cuts between the horrifying events of the previous night and, in parallel, the earlier period when Rob and Beth were happily married.

District 9 (2009)

The inhabitants of a spaceship were kept in a refugee camp in 1980s Johannesburg after it became stuck on Earth in one of the best sci-fi films of the twenty-first century, District 9.

When Wikus disregards safety measures and contracts their DNA during the evacuation, things get complicated. Wikus must battle the government that wants to use him as a weapon as he resists his transformation into one of the entities.

‘Splice’ (2009)

Couple of genetic engineers Clive Nicoli (Adrien Brody) and Elsa Kast (Sarah Polley) collaborate to produce hybrid beings for use in medical experiments. They successfully make two worm-like creatures by fusing the DNA of various animals, and they successfully mate them. They choose to combine the DNA of an animal and a person instead, against their employers’ cautions, because they want to take their work even further.

A female human-animal hybrid is born as a result of the experiment’s success. Elsa develops a maternal attachment and gives the creature the name Dren after noticing how quickly she grows to resemble a human infant. Elsa and Clive start to regret their choices as they understand that some things in nature cannot be controlled, especially given Dren’s unique powers and her violent (almost hormonal) impulses.

‘The Mist’ (2007)

This Stephen King adaption, known for its infamously depressing climax, is horrifying and tragic. Thomas Jane’s character, David Drayton, is stuck in a grocery shop with his small kid, various townspeople, including Mrs. Carmody, a religious zealot, and store manager Ollie (Toby Jones). The mist has descended on the town of Bridgton, Maine (Marcia Gay Harden).

A unknown entity drags several inhabitants into the mist as they try to flee the store; they never emerge. David must come up with a strategy to escape and get back to his wife and the mother of his child as the remaining people become more irrational and desperate and the creatures from the mist close in.
