This Netflix original horror film is giving me Squid Game vibes

It was released last September. Squid GameThe Korean series quickly gained so much attention and was widely shared via word-of mouth worldwide that it became the largest Netflix release ever. So it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise when future horror releases from the streamer — like Choose or Die, a film coming to the platform on April 15 — feel a little reminiscent of the iconic Netflix series from 2021.

As the official NetflixGeeked Twitter Account describes Choose or Die, “For fans of Squid Game and Alice in Borderland, Asa Butterfield and Iola Evans star in a movie about a new kind of deadly game. In pursuit of a cash prize, Kayla and Isaac play a horror game that forces them to make terrifying decisions to survive.”
