"Troll Hunter" was fuggin' amazing! I thought it would be a joke, but it's one of the best movies I've seen on Netflix. As far as horror, I have not felt my heart race in any horror movie in recent memory than I did during that first scene with the three-headed troll in the woods. They did a great job with the found footage style so that there is no obvious, "that guy's gonne be the first to die" character. They all seem vulnerable. It was also at turns hilariously funny. I could go on and on about it, but I'll leave it at it's absolutely worth the watch.

Also, in the foreign-Netflix-pseudo-horror genre, I'd highly recommend the Swedish "Let the Right one in." It's a terrifying, painful and beautiful movie.

Let the Right One In is excellent.

Well yeah its a classic.. Redone in english as Let Me In... A little more sensationlized than the nuanced Swedish version.. Suprisingly well cast however.

Bc amruicans cant remember such a long title.

If you are ever in the mood to watch a really fugged up movie that is very well made, I suggest "Antichrist" starring Willem Dafoe. It is currently on Netflix.

It is a really beautifully shot movie with brilliant acting throughout. It's basically about a married couple that, after the death of their baby son and subsequent mental breakdown, retreat to a cabin in the woods. Dafoe plays the husband who is a therapist. He believes he can help his wife who is slowly losing her mind.

The film has some very graphic violence and sex scenes. It is not for the faint of heart. On the surface it might seem like a film made to only shock people, but on a deeper level I think it says a lot about mental health. And it also happens to have some of the best cinematography I can remember.

I wouldn't recommend Anti-Christ at all. I hated it and don't see how anyone could like it. The entire movie was nothing but gross out shots. I really didn't care for V/H/S either. I liked the first segment but after that it was just kind of meh. Trick r' Treat though, is amazing.

Cool - thanks for all the recommendations! Tonight might be a movie marathon night.

Sometimes I have no clue how Netflix comes up with some of the categories that it recommends. I'm pretty sure "Critically-acclaimed Quirky Independent Dark Comedies Based on A True Story with a Subtle Undertone" was close to one of them.

I loved Trik'R'Treat too btw. I remember how long it took to get released. I watch it every Halloween since I got the Blu-Ray.

I get it is not for everyone. Heck it's probabyl not for 90% of the general viewing population. It's a fugged up movie and will make you feel weird after watching. Immediately after watching it I actually texted a friend and said "WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T WATCH ANTICHRIST." And I meant it, he would probably hate the movie.

But it's far from shock for shocks sake, like for example Human Centipede 2.

I played Antichrist the other night and after the begining when i realized im watching Dafoes twig n berries slamming his wifes V my wife was like ..uh what r we watching? I said.... The greatest netflix movie ever!!!

Speaking of Dafoe..Last Temptation of Christ is amazing!! For those who have not seen it.

Even for the most religious, if you watch it in its entirity n not freak out in the middle you will be rewarded in a non preverted The Passion of Tourture Porn type way. In its supposed blaspheme it demonstrates the true sacrifice and faith that The Passion does not.

..and if that sounds too religiously..its a hoot to see Jesus take a human path of not dying for the humans and doing his capital J thang!

If you can sit through Antichrist and appreciate its dark depressed art film...then check out a quirky dark comedy drama: Me You And Everyone WeKnow... Hard to explain but good..just dark n awkward. More independent film school than Antichrist''s Artistic sensibilities cinematography.

Not on Netflix but equally as depressing is The Sweet Hereafter...a great film.
