This was a movie I kinda looked forward to seeing because of Alex Garland. The Director for Ex Machina, an odd but amazing movie. Annihilation is part one of a 3 part series that I started with the book and now watched the movie. Alicia and I sit through a movie that is not quite what we thought it would be. Listen to the weird background music from the soundtrack we play behind us.
Annihilation is a 2014 novel by Jeff VanderMeer. It is the first in a series of three books called the Southern Reach Trilogy. The book describes a team of four women (a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor) who set out into an area known as Area X. The area is abandoned and cut off from the rest of civilization. They are the 12th expedition. The other expeditions have been fraught with disappearances, suicides, aggressive cancers, and mental trauma
