Vol. 1

Hi, Watchers!

Let's talk about some of the movies that made me really want to side-eye (or roundhouse kick) a child.

We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

This is a tale of a mother and son with an interesting relationship. After the mother gives birth, she struggles with postpartum depression. With many attempts to connect with her child, nothing seems to work. Throughout their journey through life, he becomes very demanding and insufferable. His behaviors only worsen, because once he's a teenager, he turns into a sociopath who does something very disturbing to those around him.

Where to Watch: Tubi, Peacock, Pluto TV, Prime Video, Redbox, Plex, Vudu, Apple TV, YouTube TV

Vivarium (2019)

Follow the story of a couple who are ready to take the next step and buy their first home together. They visit an interesting real estate office, where many of the model houses are exactly the same. And after an interesting introduction from the agent, they decide to go view the brand-new homes they offer.

They soon find that the suburban neighborhood is exactly as it was presented in the displays. And after they spend some time looking around, they realize that the agent has left them there. This normal day quickly turns into a nightmare when they realize that they cannot escape this neighborhood.

And if you are wondering why this one made the list, they find a baby in a box and are told they must raise him to be released. Needless to say, he is a true nightmare.

Where to Watch: Prime Video, Vudu, Apple TV, Redbox

The Lie (2018)

When a father is taking his daughter to dance camp, they spot her best friend waiting at a bus stop in the cold. They decide to pick her up and continue on their journey. This road trip takes a turn for the worse when they make a quick stop to use the bathroom and the two girls disappear into the woods.

Moments later the father hears a terrifying scream and rushes to find his daughter has done something. If that wasn't enough to make you think this deserves a spot on the list, wait until you see what happens at the end.

Where to Watch: Prime Video

Elevator (2011)

Follow the story of nine Wall Street partygoers who are preparing to attend a glamorous event. They pack into an elevator, heading to the top floor when suddenly, they get stuck. The reason: one of the partygoers brought their granddaughter, and she pressed the emergency button (hence making the list).

While trying to remedy the situation, this inconvenience turns into a terrifying race against time, because one of these attendees has a bomb that can blow up any second. Now they have to use all of their resources to try and save themselves before time runs out.

Where to Watch: Tubi, Prime Video. Vudu, Apple TV

No Escape (2015)

Follow the story of a father and his family moving to a Southeast Asian country for a new business opportunity. That is when their simple move turns into a nightmare, because the next morning, the people native to the country spark a deadly uprising. And unfortunately, this family is caught in the crossfire. Now they must find a way to survive and make it to safety without being caught by the rebels.

This is the second appearance of this movie on one of our Watched Lists. If you remember it was featured on the Five Must Watch Survival Thrillers: Human vs Human. Now you may be wondering why this one made this list. It is simply because I can't stand children in do-or-die situations. I will say, they were my least disliked children on the list.

Where to Watch: Netflix, Apple TV, Redbox, Vudu, Prime Video
