Content Warning: This episode contains discussion of graphic sexual assault and sexual behavior.
The French psycho-sexual space horror High Life (2018) from director Claire Denis is so much more than its plot summary of a man surviving in space alone with his daughter after his crewmates’ deaths. From its non-linear plot structure, ritualized survival methods, and through-line of dark sexuality, this film is a challenging entry in the horror canon – if you consider it a horror movie at all.
