Yes, the Science Fiction genre has films that, while are horror, breaches into some strange themes and ideas, that could put them in what most would call the Sci-Fi sub-genre, though that is an argument for the after-hours conversations at the conventions when they start back up! But we have the mad scientists, ones that deal with time travel, biology gone wrong, and a whole mess of other things, but the intent is still to scare you. And like any sub-sub-genre, we all know that there are plenty of titles that amazes us that not more people know and talk about. And that is what we’re looking for here.
For some of my examples, I’ll give you two that just blew me away and always try to recommend to people. The first one, is Subject Two (2006) about a doctor who has invented a way to bring the dead back to life. Over, and over, and over again. A very small cast, but a great idea and really well played out. Another one, Coherence (2003) is one of my all time favorites, because not only again is it highly original but just played out so well that you just never know what is going to happen. If you do decide to check that one out, don’t read anything about it before watching it. You want to go into it completely fresh.
So … what about you? What horror film that ventures into sci-fi territory that you feel is highly underrated and needs more attention. You now have the microphone!
