There are quite a few films that raised a lot of dust before the premiere, but then burned out on the whole line. On the other hand, there are quite a few films that, for one reason or another, did not catch on with the masses before the premiere, but received a lot of critical and audience praise after the screening. You won't find an average movie on our list, just about all of them will 'hit' you.
These movies are perfect for a couple or group of friends who want to spend an exciting evening. But let us warn you: it will be difficult to fall asleep after these films, because they are revealing the darkest corners of the human soul.
"Blockbusters" are a trademark of Hollywood, France is known for comedies, and Spain is a leader in mystery thrillers. You can get acquainted with this genre with the movie Contratiempo, in which the hot Mario Casas plays. Without artificial dialogues and clichés. A movie with an ending so powerful you'll want to watch it again.
The Corpse (El Cuerpo, 2012)
Another Spanish thriller that will grab your attention. A dark, realistic and dramatic story with an ending that will take your breath away.
The film is based on real events and at the same time raises awareness of acute social problems. Critics did not elevate the film to the stars, as they say that the film did not stick to one specific genre. Well, in our opinion, this is an advantage.
Woman in a cage (Kvinden i buret, 2013)
Two detectives investigate a complicated five-year-old case and find the trail of a manic killer. Maybe the story isn't really unique, but that's why the film's execution is unique. The Danish-German film has a great cast, an action-packed story and a dark atmosphere backed by a beautiful score.
Pheasants (Fasandræberne, 2014)
The sequel to the film Woman in a Cage is based on the novel of the same name. The detectives are still the same, the film uses the same visual style, but the story is different and unrelated to the previous film.
Disappearance (Flaskepost fra P, 2016)
The third film about police inspector Carl Mørck and his assistant Assad presents a new difficult task for the detective. This time the story revolves around the kidnapping of a child, where religious cults and a serial killer are also involved.
The unpredictable and extremely attractive film of the Argentinian-Spanish production tells the story of a disabled person who manages to deceive a criminal organization. A well-thought-out story will keep you enthralled until the end. There is also a sophisticated love story included which is just the icing on the cake.
The Gift (2015)
The psychological thriller does not show murders, escapes, there is almost no action in the film. But it still maintains the emotional tension until the very end. The film's open ending leaves viewers hanging in the air, making them rethink their feelings and the characters.
Tracks in the Snow (Wind River, 2017)
The story does not have any particular plot, but the film attracts attention with its aesthetics. This engrossing film raises important questions where every dialogue and every scene is worth its weight in gold. This is also a film that brings certain emotions to the surface.
Nocturnal Animals (2016)
The film is rich in stylish scenes, a lot of metaphors and a heavy psychological pressure that does not allow the viewer to relax. The true gem of this film is Aaron Taylor Johnson, who plays the Texan madman. This one is so convincing that you hate it 'at first sight'.
An epic thriller with a dark atmosphere and brutal violence. A strong acting trio – Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington and Guy Pearce – did everything in their power to make this movie outstanding.
