Throw two terrified teens together with a pretty, well, deadly computer game and you’ll get this hit Netflix film.
Choose or Die has left viewers too scared to sleep after being fixed to the ‘disturbing’ horror.
The 2022 movie focuses on Kayla (Iola Evans), a college dropout who has started a new job as a window cleaner. But she finds herself drawn into the freakish word of an 1980s survival horror computer game.
She ends up unleashing a hidden curse that tears reality apart which forces the young coder to make a bunch of high-stakes decisions as she and her friend Isaac (Sex Education's Asa Butterfield) face deadly consequences.
Choose or Die also stars Robert Englund as a fictionalised version of himself who serves as the 'Terror Director' in the game CURS>R. Horror fans may recognise his name since he played serial killer Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street film series.
Although the flick came out last year, movie fans who are in search for a late-night fright are seeking it out on the streaming service up to this day.
One Netflix subscriber declared: “Choose or Die on Netflix is crazy asf.”
Another viewer recently praised the film and urged others to watch it, writing: “Yo how the f**k did Choose or Die on Netflix completely fly under the radar for me? It's such a good little horror film. The reviews make it sound awful but I f**king loved that s**t man.”
Meanwhile, there are bunch of viewers who ran to X to share just how scared they were after watching it - which is exactly what you want from a horror film.
“Watching Choose or Die on Netflix and I really can't take any kind of horror movie, I'll be lucky to sleep tonight,” one user warned.
Another shared: “Netflix movie Choose Or Die that movie is literally insane.”
And one user confessed: “Choose or Die on Netflix got me scared I had to turn the light on it’s hella creepy.”
In a more detailed review, a social media user compared the film favourably to another Netflix hit, writing: “Anyone watch that Netflix movie called Choose or Die?! It was pretty interesting and crazy at times. Like a Black Mirror style but with a 80s 8 bit horror game voiced by Robert Englund. The game is like a choice based game where it affects the reality around you & those.”
Go on, give it a watch if you think you're brave enough. Choose or Die is available on Netflix now.
