Strangers find themselves trapped in a space-shifting maze.
WHY WE PICKED IT: This smart, stylish indie sci-fi movie cranks up the tension, from first scene to final frame.
In the cult classic thriller from Vincenzo Natali that spawned a film franchise (and a currently in-development remake), a group of strangers—a cop, scientist, math student, autistic mathematical savant, renowned escape artist, and an architect who may know more than he initially first admits—awake inexplicably imprisoned in a seemingly endless, Kafkaesque maze of booby-trapped rooms.
