Best dystopian movies on Netflix or DVD in 2017

2010's best rated dystopian movies out on DVD, Bluray or streaming on VOD (Netflix, Amazon).

  1. The Girl with All the Gifts (23-09-2016, 111 minutes)
  2. One of the most surprising films of 2016, 'The Girl With All the Gifts' is a film that will satisfy both avid zombie/horror lovers and those who are more into art house cinema. Based on the best-selling novel, 'The Girl...' takes place in a near future, where a virus has turned the majority of the population into a zombie-like species. A very small part of them, so-called 'Hybrids', are capable of emotions though. Melanie is one of them. Is she the key to the solution for mankind?
    StarringGemma Arterton, Glenn Close & Anamaria Marinca

  3. High-Rise (18-03-2016, 119 minutes)
  4. Versatile British director Ben Wheatley returns with 'High-Rise', a strange and intellectual dystopia flick. Robert Laing is a well-off doctor who decides to live in a elegant and luxurious apartment block. The residents live in complete isolation, the building serving as some kind of micro-society. High-Rise is a movie you simply have to experience; its stark, estranging images, the weird, black situation humor... Wheatley created something entirely unique here.
