Without a doubt, Fried Barry (2020) was one of the most celebrated horror movies of the past year. Not only it collected a big amount of awards and nominations, but it also became an instant classic to many horror fans and was always on all the top 10 list of best movies of 2020.

The crazy story of this South African movie centers on a drug-addled degenerate who, after yet another bender, gets abducted by aliens. Barry takes a backseat as his alien visitor assumes control of his body and takes it for a joyride through Cape Town. What follows is an onslaught of drugs, sex, and violence as Barry’s alien tourist enters the weird and wonderful world of humankind.
