Netflix's New Horror Film The Platform Is Being Compared To Parasite

New Netflix horror film The Platform is being compared to Parasite, Bong Joon-ho's social satire that won four Oscars, including Best Picture. Check out the trailer below:

Set in some near dystopian future, the movie follows Goreng who wakes up to find himself in 'the pit' - a seemingly endless concrete tower that houses an equally endless number of prisoners.

Every month, each person is randomly assigned to a new floor, alongside another inmate. They are fed once a day, with a buffet lowered through the rectangular hole running through the middle of the prison.

Those on the top get first dibs, before it drops down the levels, with people gorging on as much as they can before it moves again - with those at the bottom left with nothing.

The premise is that if everyone took just what they needed, there would be enough for everyone. Sound familiar?

The movie is a brutal gorefest, with plenty of blood, starvation, murders, oh, and a healthy dose of cannibalism. If that's your thing.

It was awarded the People's Choice Award for Midnight Madness at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and has a rating on 85 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Film fans on Twitter are even comparing the movie's scathing social satire to Bong Joon-ho's Oscar-winning Parasite.

One fan wrote: "New movie recommendation. It's F***ING CRAZY like on the same level as Parasite. It's called The Platform on Netflix. Holy s***."

Another said: "If you think Parasite was insane, The Platform on Netflix is absolutely f***ing mental. I love it."
