Suggest any movies you've seen that are either foreign or obscure. The wife and I watch quite a lot of foreign films. If you're into dark comedies, Denmark has a ton of them.

Have you seen Antichrist? Denmark director Lars von Trier did it, VERY dark and disturbing film. Anyways, I'm not a big foreign film guy, but a while ago I watched A Prophet. It's a French prison film, pretty dark as well. Good, but I find it hard to get into foreign films.

The Norwegian movie "Dead Snow" is a kick-ass Nazi zombie movie. The special effects and gore are top-notch and it has some humor to it. It's probably in my top 10 favorite zombie movies. Definitely a fun watch. I give it 2 severed thumbs up! Foreign/Obscure Movies 184121345

I have not, but I am a fan of Lars von Trier (even if the endings to all of his movies make me want to slit my wrists)

He did a horror show in Denmark called "The Kingdom" that was really good. It was the basis for Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital.

"Pan's Labyrinth" is a visually stunning and cool movie from director Guillermo del Toro ("Hellboy"). It is subtitled, but well worth the watch. It is set during the Spanish Civil War and mingles the real world with the fantasy world. There are many weird and wild creatures inhabiting the fantasy world of the labyrinth. If you like visual CGI/makeup heavy fantasy movies, this one's for you.

Boy he is a genius, the first scene in Antichrist may be the most beautifully shot few minutes in film I've ever seen. Of course, you have to have the stomach and the heart to see his films, as you said, they are EXTREMELY emotionally demanding.

Yay! Great topic Jon! I'm totally in love with foreign films right now (mostly Finnish/Scandinavian and mostly horror). Here's some of my faves that are definitely worth a look.

Sauna (Filth) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1124394/

This movie literally freaked me the hell out. Doesn't help that I was watching it alone in the dark at 2am on a rainy night, but I RARELY ever get spooked by a movie. I loved it.

Fritt Vilt (Cold Prey) (there's 3 of them now) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0808276/

Just a fun slasher flick. Basic premise of a bunch of 20 somethings stranded in an abandoned hotel with a crazy fucker who's killing them off...but it's still good.

Villmark (Dark Woods) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0356176/

Fucking incredible. That is all.

Naboer (Next Door) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453383/

A pretty twisted movie (some disturbing sexual scenes)...but really, really good. I pretty much love anything with Kristoffer Joner in it (see Villmark).

Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1139797/

Excellent movie. Probably the best vampire movie I've ever seen. The US remake (Let Me In...if you haven't heard of it check it out) is great as well. Pretty much the best US remake of a foreign film I've ever seen. Both are very worthy of watching...and if you haven't seen them, you're missing out.

I saw Pan's Labyrinth was already posted...great flick and del Toro is one of my all time favorite directors. I suggest watching his earlier films Cronos and The Devil's Backbone as well. Both very, very good. Another movie he did, The Orphanage, is good too...but IMO probably his weakest movie. Still worth the watch though.

For French films, I love me some Alexandre Aja (he directed The Hills Have Eyes remake). High Tension and Furia are badass movies though. Both in French.

There's so many more...I watch a ton of foreign flicks, so I'm sure I'll post a ton more. Can't wait to see some of the ones mentioned that I haven't seen yet!

I agree that Let the Right One In is one of the greatest vampire movies ever. I think that the best horror movies also work well within other genres, be it comedy or drama.

I'm a huge fan of Peter Jackson's early films like Bad Taste, Dead Alive, Meet the Feebles, and Heavenly Creatures.

Bad Taste and Dead Alive are low budget, extremely gory horror-comedies that are just awesome on every level. It's also a good showcase on how actual effects are still way better than CGI.

Meet the Feebles is a live-action puppet movie that takes place behind the scenes of a Muppetesque television show. Highly disturbing as well as hilarious.

Heavenly Creatures was a more serious movie about the real life relationship between two girls who create their own fantasy world, and the consequences of when their parents try to keep them apart.

Yeah, I've seen Bad Taste, Dead Alive and Meet the Feebles. I absolutely despised Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles...and no, I was not sober when I saw them lol. I understand why they are cult favorites, but I just have no interest in ever sitting through either again. My Jon loves and has both though...he just knows not to watch them when I'm around.

The only good part of Feebles for me is the Sodomy song lol.

One of my favorite horror movies "Dog Soldiers" is a British film about an army team that goes into the Scottish Highlands on a training exercise against a special forces team. They discover the ravaged camp of the special forces squad and their mutilated remains save for one lone survivor, the special forces captain. The team immediately begins being stalked and hunted by a family of werewolves and are forced to hole up in a seemingly abandoned farmhouse to fight them off.

Killer movie with good acting, special effects and scares. It is somewhat gory and very action filled with the right amount of humor thrown in. Think of a cross between "The Evil Dead" and "Aliens" with werewolves. If you like horror movies with action, this won't disappoint.

I watched the Mexican/American movie Monsters last night. There was an awful lot of drama and not that many monsters, but the story takes place 6 years after a space probe crashes in northern Mexico and the alien life has been contained in a region known as the "Infected Zone" along of US-Mexico border. A photojournalist is trying to take photographs of the infected zone when he is tasked to escort a wealthy businessman's daughter from Mexico back to the US. I had a hard time paying attention, but I was also pretty high tired at the time.

Here's a great horror film that unfortunately suffered from a sub-par American remake. [REC] has some genuine scares as well as a much better lead actress than the always overacting Jennifer Carpenter.

[REC]2 is great as well (if you haven't seen it). Quarantine is shit...I agree.

They are filming the third one now...[REC]Genesis and are in the process of writing a fourth one.

The Proposition is a Western set in Austrailia about an outlaw (played by Guy Pearce) and his younger brother who are arrested and sentenced to die. The police captain makes Guy Pearce a proposition that if he finds and kills his older brother, he and his younger brother can go free. If he doesn't do this within 9 days, his little brother will hang on the gallows. Written by musician Nick Cave, the movie is pretty violent but also a great example of what Westerns should aspire to be.

I you like your horror films to have more scares than just someone jumping out accompanied by a loud noise, I highly recommend Italian director Dario Argento. He's been making giallo (Italian slasher) films since the 70's and is one of the few directors to be able to make graphic violence work (sorry Eli Roth, but you're terrible.) Two films of his that I highly recommend are Suspiria and Opera. Suspiria usually tops my list of favorite horror films.

At Helge's 60th birthday party, some unpleasant family truths are revealed.

Foreign/Obscure Movies L_39368_0154420_c3c58505

Four small gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they take over 4,000,000 kroner which they were supposed to bring him. Trying to escape to Barcelona they are forced to stop in the countryside, in an old, wrecked house, hiding there for several weeks. Slowly, one after another, they realize, that they would like to stay there, starting a new life, renovating the house and forming it into a restaurant. But they can't avoid being caught up by their past.

Robert Hansen is a cop in Copenhagen who makes a mistake, is remanded for therapy, then assigned to a small town in South Jutland, where cows and problems disappear into the mud. He quickly learns that the town bully, Jørgen, beats his wife, an outsider like Robert. He tries to get her to swear out a complaint against Jørgen; she flirts with Robert. When someone dies and Robert knows the prime suspect is innocent, he halts vigilante justice and things get complicated. He wants to protect himself and the daughter of Jørgen, and he wants to reconnect with his own daughter back home. Is rural justice his ticket back to Copenhagen? Is there any chance at happiness?

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Four small gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they take over 4,000,000 kroner which they were supposed to bring him. Trying to escape to Barcelona they are forced to stop in the countryside, in an old, wrecked house, hiding there for several weeks. Slowly, one after another, they realize, that they would like to stay there, starting a new life, renovating the house and forming it into a restaurant. But they can't avoid being caught up by their past.

Robert Hansen is a cop in Copenhagen who makes a mistake, is remanded for therapy, then assigned to a small town in South Jutland, where cows and problems disappear into the mud. He quickly learns that the town bully, Jørgen, beats his wife, an outsider like Robert. He tries to get her to swear out a complaint against Jørgen; she flirts with Robert. When someone dies and Robert knows the prime suspect is innocent, he halts vigilante justice and things get complicated. He wants to protect himself and the daughter of Jørgen, and he wants to reconnect with his own daughter back home. Is rural justice his ticket back to Copenhagen? Is there any chance at happiness?

The Celebration, Flickering Lights, and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo were all incredible. Gotta love those Danish flicks.
