This is a film I have been looking forward to seeing for a while now and honestly this trailer is everything I want from a movie right now. Before we get into the nitty gritty I should explain what a Vivarium is:
A vivarium (Latin, literally for “place of life”; plural: vivaria or vivariums) is an area, usually enclosed, for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research. Often, a portion of the ecosystem for a particular species is simulated on a smaller scale, with controls for environmental conditions.
Now that you know that we may proceed. Vivarium see’s Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots trapped inside a neighborhood with no hope of escape.
As someone who has just purchased his first home and has to navigate a new route every day I can understand the fear of being trapped inside a massive infinite labarynth of new houses and love how the writers have twisted something that should be joyous and made it into an evil and dark concept. The film is supposed to be a tense watch and with both Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots in the lead you know it is going to straddle the fine line between great and mental. Yes I will be watching this one ASAP.
