Did You Know?
- This film was based on the first book in the "Southern Reach" trilogy.
- All five women on the expedition are shown using M4 full-auto rifles. We are told that Lena and Sheppard are ex-military, so it's plausible that the military would arm them. However, the rest of the team are civilians and academics. It's extremely unlikely that the military would arm civilians, let alone issue them fully automatic weapons.

- Dr Ventress: It's destroying everything.
- Lena: It's not destroying. It's making something new.

It was like an LSD trip into the unknown.
This movie is a gem of its own. This movie will honestly have you on the edge of your seat. Literally reminds me a black mirror episode just on a movie scale. A must see!
The result is daringly original and frequently beautiful, a shimmering treat from a singular intelligence.
To be sure, the climax delivers copious amounts of blood and guts and tension and look-away temptations. But there are enough interesting surprises, in addition to the narrative promise, to provide for the presumed, and now quite desired, sequels.
Able to generate dread and awe with equal skill, Annihilation is an absorbing amalgam of genres and influences, all coming together to produce a dazzling creation as vivid as the hybrid life forms our heroes encounter on their perilous journey.
