If you’re looking for a suspenseful movie, the survival-in-space flick Life is the way to go. It falls under the horror, science-fiction, and suspense categories. Although it’s very predictable, I found myself in suspense every second.

Much like the movie Alien (1979), a group of scientists are put into space, and they find an extraordinary discovery: the first sign of life outside Earth. The creature they call Calvin is much stronger and smarter than the scientists think, and it takes over the whole spaceship.

It’s predictable that the monster is going to eat or kill everyone on the spaceship. But when or how is what kept me in suspense. After Calvin’s first victim, you know the creature is going to kill the rest of the crew, because of how violent and persistent it is.

When a scientist quietly creeps through the spaceship, and the music changes, you know Calvin is in the room. The monster also gets away every time. In the beginning, the crew tries to trap the creature in one room, but you know it’s going to get away.

The horror part is how Calvin attacks the scientists. The slimy grayish creature crawls into their mouths and kills them from the inside. It wraps its slithery body around their bones and crushes them.

At the end of the movie, there was a great plot twist, and they made room for a second movie. I was left on a cliffhanger and wanted to know what would happen next.

Life is rated R for language and science-fiction terror.
