With everything that’s gone on in the world over the course of the last few years, a society-ending disease that ushers in a new age for mankind is seemingly more believable than ever, right? Yes, echoing the global pandemic that we’re still in the midst of recovering from, a certain post-apocalyptic movie has rocketed into the Top 10 most-viewed movies on Hulu, according to FlixPatrol.
More specifically, the film in question is I Think We’re Alone Now, and no, we’re not talking about Richie Cordells’ catchy ’60s hit song. Au contraire, we’re talking about the 2018 sci-fi drama that centers on two survivors of a catastrophic disease that has ripped through society and has left the world in pieces.
Starring Game of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage and I Am Sam’s Elle Fanning as the unlikely duo, the feature is more of an understated emotional reflection on loneliness, survival, and trauma than an all-guns-blazing actioner, which makes sense considering the director is Reed Morano. For those unaware, Morano is the Emmy award-winning director responsible for the first three episodes of another post-apocalyptic Hulu drama, The Handmaid’s Tale.
