These are some of the best Annihilation quotes and help tell the story about a team of researchers who venture into a strange electromagnetic field. The science fiction horror movie was written and directed by Alex Garland based on the book of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer.

In Annihilation, biologist Lena (Natalie Portman) is called after her soldier husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac), is critically injured after an expedition into a strange area known as The Shimmer. As psychologist and expedition leader Dr. Ventress (Jennifer Jason Leigh) explains, The Shimmer is an electromagnetic field that popped up three years earlier. The expeditions into it have never been successful as, before Kane, nothing that went into it has come back out.

So Lena agrees to join the next expedition into The Shimmer along with Dr. Ventress, paramedic Anya (Gina Rodriguez), physicist Josie (Tessa Thompson) and surveyor Cass (Tuva Novotny). What the ladies find inside is an entirely beautiful environment, but one where life continually mutates.
