Spoiler alert!

Among all these recent movies that are mostly derivative it is a pleasure to finally find one that is original and thought provoking.

Vivarium is about a young couple who were trapped in a suburban neighborhood and forced to raise a child that seems like a human but is actually a creature from a specie with advanced technology but parasitic morale.

The plot by itself is an interesting sci-fi psychological horror story, but also reflects on the current state of our society, such as housing, parenting, inequality, and resource extraction.
