I'm preferably looking for a sci-fi/horror film, I've seen quite a lot of the genre but I feel like I could see a lot more.

It's September 2, 2020.
*My suggestion is a 2019 movie called an "Alita battle Angel".
Classic. And...a lot of people have not seen it I'm guessing!!

The Thing from Another World [1951], just a good romp, with some of the best ever film dialogue.
Curse/Night of the Demon [1957], actually scared me the first time I saw it.
Cat People [1942], film-noire as fantasy-horror.
And if you can find it [relatively] uncut...
Freaks [1932], still a surprising if not shocking film.

These films are classics, and rightly so. I expect that we could make a long list of others too, but if you want to see something newer then the most recent films I have watched on Netflix were The Old Guard and Project Power. I haven't ventured out to the cinema yet since lockdown, but cinemas are open again, and I have heard really good things about Tenet, Christopher Nolan's most recent film that is showing in cinemas right now.

Oblivion is interesting cinema.
Even if the whole film seems like its something a vampire voodoo priest would suck out of the repairman jack novels.
But then it does star Tom Cruise.

Night of the Demon is an awesome film, among my top 5 horror films. It's an adaptation of MR James' short story Casting the Runes.

Another couple of favourites of mine that are a little more obscure are Time Bandits (more fantasy than scifi) and another couple of MR James' Oh Whistle (the Michael Hordern version) and A View From a Hill.

I'll out the two MR James films. I think I've seen A view from a hill many years ago..
As for Time Bandits? I spent [pocket] money to see that in the local fleapit with my friends. A great afternoon was had by all.

Me, really. I haven't seen it for maybe 30 years when we had a copy on VHS.

I must address that, actually.

Not much remembered now, I think, The Hidden with Michael Nouri and Kyle MacLachlan. Not great, but pretty good s.f./horror, with Chris Mulkey, among others, including (I think) Claudia Christian's feature film debut. Another is Strange Invaders with Paul Le Mat; again, not great but fun if you can tolerate '80s s.f. Similarly, Super 8, a 2000s pastiche of '80s s.f., and Spielberg in particular, is enjoyable.
