“So you’re telling me that I’m in a town where I can’t leave, and every night, monsters come from the forest?” Jade (David Alpay) summarized his new reality in one question to Donna (Elizabeth Saunders). The only thing he didn’t say is that those monsters take the shape of someone you love and play with your mind causing you to open the door for them so they can torture and rip you apart. FROM perfectly merges Sci-Fi and horror in a unique way that has garnered a huge fanbase as more people try to understand the mysteries of The Town.

The plot is set so that fans can’t tell who will die next, and the horror scenes, although difficult to watch, still end up being electric and interesting. Harold Perrineau’s performance as Sheriff Boyd is one of the biggest attractions to the show, as the lead character tries to help a group of strangers imprisoned by unknown forces to try and make a little heaven in hell. Although FROM is irresistible, it only has a limited number of episodes, so fans who intend to binge on more interesting shows can check out these ten shows like FROM based on their IMDB scores.

1. Yellowjackets: 2021

IMDB: 7.9/10

What it’s about: Yellowjackets follows the lives of the members of a New Jersey girls’ high school soccer team that gets stranded in the wilderness in Ontario after their plane crashes while on the way to Seattle. Their new reality with hardships in the jungle forces some of the girls to turn to cannibalism, leading to horror scenes as different clans attack each other as everyone tries to stay alive for the 19 months of their life in the jungle. The show then crosses over to the adult versions of the survivors 25 years after they are rescued.

Why it’s similar to FROM: Just like the Mathew family, The Yellowjackets find themselves trapped in a new world where death is almost certain. The mysteries and horrors of the jungle in Yellowjackets are very similar to what the people in The Town face. Man-eating monsters in FROM are also quite similar to the cannibalistic clans that emerge from among the team members in Yellowjackets.

2. Wayward Pines: 2015

wayward pines1

IMDB: 7.3/10

What it’s about: A US secret service agent Ethan Burke gets involved in a car accident on his way to investigate the disappearance of two fellow agents and wakes up in a mysterious town where he can’t contact the outside world. The town is called Wayward Pines, in Idaho, where the members of the town can’t leave because they are trapped inside by an electric fence. A sheriff enforces a set of tough rules, and breaking them is punished by public execution in a ceremony known as The Reckoning. Burke later discovers that the town is not the prison he thought of, and the world he hopes to return to doesn’t exist anymore.

Why it’s similar to FROM: The dystopian setting in Wayward Pines is similar to that of the mysterious town in FROM, with everyone that finds themselves in the town being turned into a prisoner in both shows. The threat of man-eating monsters from outside the town is similar in both towns, and the storyline of the Sherriff making the tough rules and enforcing them with an iron rod is repeated in Wayward Pines.

3. The Wilds: 2020

The Wilds

IMDB: 7.3/10

They are forced to interact and bond on the deserted island, crossing the boundaries of their different backgrounds and working together to survive.

Why it’s similar to FROM: Like FROM, The Wilds employs an ensemble cast, with the survivors of the first season being different from those in the second. The Wilds also explores strangers’ behavior when they face a common threat in a strange environment, just like in FROM. Both shows test the endurance of the characters to the limits.

Doreen TheSocietyOnNetflix

IMDB: 7.1/10

What it’s about: A group of high school teens from West Ham, Connecticut, return to their hometown after a camping trip and find all the adults in the town gone. They are forced to create a functional society by themselves as they soon realize that their newfound freedom has to be limited by some rules for everyone to survive. The chaos created by everyone attempting to achieve their teen fantasies soon creates a small hell out of their previously classy town.

Why it’s similar to FROM: The mystery of all the adults in town disappearing leaves confusion, just like what newcomers experience when they arrive in the mysterious town in FROM. The Society is like an expansive version of FROM’s The Colony, except Donna is not there to enforce the rules. Every character expressing the best or worst version of themselves when threatened by extinction in The Society creates a similarly chaotic environment.
