We can't stop talking about the Netflix show that has taken the world by storm. But did you know there are others that are just as good if not better? Here are 5 must-watch shows or movies that you need to add to your list if you liked Squid Game.
1) Alice in Borderland
This action-thriller is based on the anime about a gamer named Arisu who suddenly finds himself in a strange, emptied-out version of Tokyo in which he and his friends must compete in dangerous games to survive. Fans are blowing up that Squid Game is getting all the attention whereas this show is as good if not better.
2) Battle Royale
This is a movie that every gamer and watcher of Squid Game should watch. Battle Royale is about a group of high school students who are part of a program to kill each other on an island or else be killed by the government until only one is left. If you liked King's Game, then this series will make your heart race.
3) Liar Game
This is another Korean series based on an anime and is about a woman named Nao Kanzaki, who gets blackmailed by a genius swindler into joining the Liar Game Tournament where she has to participate in various games and outwit other players if she wants to get her life back. If you liked the suspense and tension of Squid Game, then you'll love this.
4) The Hunger Games
Yeah, it might seem a bit obvious because of just how massive these movies were, but you can't deny the similarities. In a world where North America has been destroyed from war and famine, all hope is lost for many American's including Katness Everdeen. It's full of suspense and a fight for power and it doesn't hurt that Jennifer Lawrence is such a great actress plus we'll throw in a Hemsworth for good measure.
5) Old Boy
Picking a version of Old Boy is the hardest thing to do. There's the 2003 Korean film or the anime but we'd recommend the 2013 remake with Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen (yeah Thanos and Wanda from the Marvel Movies). Directed by Spike Lee The story is about a man who wakes up in an apartment with no idea how he got there. He is imprisoned for 20 years without any explanation of why or what's going on until he decides to take his revenge and seek out answers. Watch this if you enjoyed the dark antihero of Squid Game.
So these are just some of the shows and movies that you need to watch if you enjoyed Squid Game. Even if you didn't like Squid Game, these are still must-watch shows. So what are you waiting for?
