Forget mixing coffee and Redbull and watch these 4 survival horror movies if you never want to sleep again. Feel your heart rate spike and adrenaline kick in to battle against your oncoming bedtime as you immerse yourself in these dark worlds.. Breathe in deeper than you did yesterday knowing that you’re still above ground and ready for another battle; even if it’s just over a parking space.
A defense manufacturer sends a sales team out for some team building in the country side and they end up fighting for their lives as, one by one, they get rather brutally killed. Spend too much time thinking about having to ally with your work mates in order to survive and you’ll end up in the fetal position as you watch the sun rise on another sleepless night. The missile launcher scene is a surefire favorite that promises vengeance but delivers laughs instead. “Severance” is a survival horror movie dipped in the blood of humor and office politics–it’s great fun.
Luck becomes a measurable individual attribute in “Intacto.” Unfortunately for the lucky, there is also a rarer group of people who can steal that luck for themselves. Tomas, the only survivor of a plane crash, is discovered by Federico, who was a luck thief until he lost his thieving power to his mentor Samuel. Hoping to use Tomas as his pawn for vengeance, Federico pits Tomas against others of his ilk in gambling competitions where the stakes become larger and the danger becomes greater. As the individuals’ luck gets wagered, the realization that these “captives” will die sad lives, drained of their chances, the horror behind luck stealing becomes evident. Although a game of Russian Roulette seals this as a survival horror movie, it is the running through the forest scene that will stick with you day and night.
