Johannes Gelilang - Contributor

With the recent happenings confining us in our homes, most of us already spent a lot of time watching movies and TV shows on Netflix, right? Perhaps, you even came across the Spanish dystopian thriller The Platform. But, now that you already finished the film, you ask yourself: "what's next?" Yes, we know your dilemma. You wanted more, and that's why you're here! Fret not, as we've compiled this list of the best dystopian thrillers to watch after Netflix's The Platform for your pleasure. Indulge, as even though The Platform is exclusively available on Netflix, the ones listed are also available on other services. There are no excuses! Watch 'til you drop!

  1. 1Snowpiercer


    Snowpiercer is a dystopian film that's very much similar to The Platform. While the social class spreads vertically in the building in the Spanish movie, Snowpiercer clustered the people horizontally across its train circling the now frozen world. Like Goreng, Curtis (portrayed by Chris Evans) led a revolution to end the existing social injustice. AND, there's another thing. Aside from the Korean director Bong Joon-ho, Snowpiercer also features some Korean stars, making it somewhat an international movie like The Platform. See the similarities? No?

  1. 2High-Rise


    The 2015 British dystopian motion picture is among the best that depicts the class struggle in The Platform the closest. Well, for one, High-Rise also has residents living inside a building, with the upper-class situated up top and the less fortunate below. To remind you, this is also the same set-up in the Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia-directed movie. The violence starts when the building's infrastructures start to fail, and people now have to fight for their survival. And also, if you want to see Tom Hiddleston in a new light, you should watch this. Stream now by clicking the button below.

  2. 3The Handmaid's Tale


    The crew of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale does a good job so far. Why? It's because their adaptation of Margaret Atwood's story only made it more terrifying! It is comparable to the societal struggle depicted in The Platform — real talk! Set in future America, which now has a totalitarian society, only the rich reigns. They exploit the working class, especially women who are now slaves to forced impregnation from elite men. Still can't imagine what we're trying to say? Well then, maybe it's time you to claim your 7-day free trial at Hulu and start watching now! See how Elizabeth Moss's character is thriving to escape this cruel faith.

  1. 4Parasite


    It seems like Bong Joon-ho is great at portraying injustice in the society in his films. He did it first in Snowpiercer, and he does it again here in Parasite! Unlike The Platform, Parasite is not that dystopic. And it only featured two different families as a representation of the rich and the poor, each showing different struggles. If you still don't know why this became the first foreign-language film to bring home the coveted Academy Award for Best Picture, don't hesitate, my friend.

  2. 5Us


    Jordan Peele proves once again that he's more than just a comedian. After his brilliant direction in Get Out, which depicted racial slavery, he once again did a good job in Us. However, the latter pictured the current political and social climate in America, with the oppressed getting their revenge against the upper-class. The portrayal of the struggle is as intense as the one in The Platform. Watch it now by clicking the link below.
