1. The Neon Demon

Release Year: 2016

Written By: Mary Laws, Nicolas Winding, Refn, Polly Stenham

Directed By: Nicolas Winding Refn

Starring: Elle Fanning, Karl Glusman, Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves

An Amazon Studios original production, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon creates a visually stunning albeit psychologically horrifying world onscreen. Like Only God Forgives, Refn’s follow-up to 2011’s Drive, The Neon Demon received a polarizing–if not passionate–response from critics for its out-there narrative.

Jesse (Elle Fanning) relocates to Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career, where she meets a pack of women immediately taken with her innocence and beauty. Ruby (Jena Malone), Gigi (Bella Heathcote), and Sarah (Abbey Lee) push Jesse to her limits until they take exactly what they want from her.

The Neon Demon isn’t for the faint of heart, but those who walked into Drive expecting a simple action thriller know this to be true. It’s weird, it’s wild, and it’s worth a bone-chilling view. Refn directs with a shocking style and Elle Fanning turns in another star-making role in The Neon Demon, Amazon’s in-house foray into horror movies.
