End-of-the-world thriller movies can be hit or miss, but Leave the World Behind on Netflix is an edge-of-the-seat story that elicits several emotions, including the belief this story could play out in real life. From writer/director Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), this story follows a family of four setting out on a vacation away from the busy city and looking to unwind until a strange knock at the door starts a cascade of cyberattacks that makes you question whose behind it all. In this Instant Reaction episode of the MovieBuffs Podcast, host Tyler Valencia goes through some of his favorite aspects of the film and discusses which audience might appreciate this story more than others.
The quick analysis is that Leave the World Behind reminds audiences of good M. Night Shyamalan with a Mr. Robot twist. The pieces of this film that will keep the audience engaged is the belief that they could wake up tomorrow and this film is playing out right in front of their eyes.
