Vivarium Official Trailer (2020) - Jesse Eisenberg, Imogen Poots.
Young couple, Gemma and Tom want to purchase a house. They visit a strange estate agent, Martin. Martin tells them of a new development called Yonder. Gemma and Tom drive out to the development with Martin. The houses in Yonder are identical, suburban homes. The place is silent, empty and otherworldly. Martin shows the couple around house number nine and then vanishes. Gemma and Tom attempt to leave Yonder, but become lost. Every route returns them to number nine. The car runs out of petrol. They stay the night in number nine. The next morning, Tom climbs onto the roof of number nine to see if he can spot a way out of Yonder. He sees that the houses of Yonder seem to stretch into infinity. The couple decide to follow the artificial looking sun, hoping it will lead them out if they stay on course. The couple are led back to number nine. They find a delivery box filled with prepacked food and other necessities. A furious Tom sets number nine ablaze, hoping to attract attention. The couple falls into a strange sleep outside the house and awakes to find a tiny infant with instructions: 'raise the child and be released.' Two months pass. The infant has rapidly grown to the size of a seven-year-old boy. He incessantly demands attention and closely observes the couple when he is not absorbed by strange patterns on the television. Living with the boy and their imprisonment takes a psychological toll on the couple. Their physical well-being also worsens. Tom discovers that the soil of Yonder is made from a seemingly artificial substance. He starts to dig a hole and becomes obsessed. Digging makes him feel as if he has a purpose, but the hole just gets deeper and deeper. When he hears noises at the bottom of the hole, he digs further.
