An unusual story which really divided Saulniers fan base, but I feel we need more experimental films like this to appreciate.

200 The Monster (2016)

Super effective and powerful movie starring Zoe Kazan as a mother who’s doing all she can to protect her daughter while stranded on a lonely road. Tons of traditional horror alongside poignant metaphorical ideas on what a monster truly is in this entertaining and thought provoking horror story.

Invited back to his home village for a civic honour, a writer (Gorka Otxoa) discovers some unpleasant truths about his family and why his village hasn’t changed in more than a century. Brilliant comedy horror with a slash of the uncanny, kinda like Day of the Beast but without the drugs and leather pants. Continue reading Top 250 of the Decade 200 – 151
