Vivarium: What Is Going On?

It’s not often we get a truly innovative and weird story that’s also good. But it seems like the stars have aligned with the upcoming film Vivarium.

Besides having a ridiculously hard name to pronounce, it also seems like it’s going to be a nail-biting and mind-bending horrific adventure.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, Vivarium is an unconventional thriller about a newlywed couple looking to buy their first home. When the suburban neighborhood they look at isn’t quite for them they try and leave, only to find out escape is impossible.

Coming out in March it looks like an innovative movie I don’t want to miss.


  • While a great many would see him as a hero, there are some that would prefer the term vigilante. Gregory is an aspiring filmmaker who loves writing, directing, coffee and long walks on the beach.
