Thriller or horror? Honestly, both. Squid Game is a horrifying tale, I agree, but it’s mostly a thriller. And horror because watching people get brutally murdered is… horrifying for sure.

And I am not even going to get into the parallels it creates with capitalism at this time in reality. Some episodes will make you weep, but it will mostly keep you at the edge of your seat.
