It has that "sci-fi horror" ambience that I so love - for no clear reason. Just like the actual games.

If nothing else, they're hitting the exact kind of notes I'm looking for in terms of atmosphere and the proper sense of doom and dread
I enjoyed Downfall, and I usually find animated films hard to watch. They had the right idea with having it take place immediately before the start of Dead Space.

There's another animated film called Dead Space: Aftermath that takes place right before the events of DS 2.

I watched Aftermath as well

I actually like some of the stories in that one better than Downfall - but the awkward CGI animations that take up half the movie are extremely distracting.

But it actually helped me understand the story of DS2 a little better, so that's something.

The language spoken in the movie about half of the time is german and another half is english. There are also some dialogues in not sure which languages (arabic?).

I have watched the version with absolutley no dub. And with subs of course.

It is possible that Netflix USA sets dubbed versions as priority, too many times I've seen imdb imbecilles slapping 1/10 on movies only because the spoken language is not english.

Yeah, just started it and it defaulted to English. But if you change it to "German [Original]" and the subtitles to English (not English CC) then you get the English bits in English and the German bits in German and English subs only for the German bits.
The subtitle/audio labels are a little misleading.

Gerald's Game

Been a long time since I've watched a new King adaptation. I'm a newish fan of Mike Flanagan, and this is well done, like most (all?) of his films. Being set almost entirely within one room and with two actors, it's not particularly cinematic…more like a play… but excellent nonetheless.

Pretty good adaptation, especially (as you note) given the limited scope of the story.

Re: the director (Flanagan)
I've only seen this and Absentia by him (which I also liked), but Oculus, Hush, and Doctor Sleep are all on my to-watch list.
