How are you guys? It’s really tough period because of COVID 19 pandemic. 

Not only Europe but also the US request people for staying at home to overcome this situation.

In this difficult situation, you can feel stuffy and anxiety.

Today, I will introduce five films which express the psychology of people who are stuck in somewhere.

They are all outstanding films.

I know positive films make us feel better in these gloomy days.

However, sometimes, depressing movies are more helpful than funny ones when you’re depressed.


1. The Mist (2007)
Story : A freak storm unleashes a species of bloodthirsty creatures on a small town, where a small band of citizens hole up in a supermarket and fight for their lives.

The psychological changes of people in the invisible risk in this film illustrate our current mentality.
What can we do if we have no information about the crisis in front of us?

2. Take Shelter (2011)

Story : Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.

In an unknown state of anxiety and fear, a human action is realistically depicted. He can’t react pushfully to this situation, so he has to suffer from it.
It’s a relatively unknown film, but it’s an amazing, highly acclaimed masterpiece.
3. Train to Busan (2016)
Story : While a zombie virus breaks out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.

In an unknown disaster, people’s negative emotions are exposed extremely. Some people in the movie express all kinds of hate, which is also often seen in the current COVID-19 crisis. When people face a crisis, hate seems to easily gain strength.
4. Buried (2010)
Story : Paul is a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

It shows the psychology of a man trapped in an extreme situation.
You feel grateful for the house after seeing it.^^
5. Gravity (2013)
Story : Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space.

The film can be a valuable film for people who stay alone in a room these days and communicate with others only through social media.

These five films will satisfy you. Stay safe and healthy at home. I hope we will go out and meet others freely soon.
