A descent into madness: Spanish Gothic Style

Nos Miran   Mr Horror minilogo thriller reviews reviews horror drama Spain’s horror film industry had a huge comeback in the 90′s with directors such as Álex de la Iglesia, Jaume Balagueró and specially, Alejandro Amenábar; a new generation of young directors demonstrating that there was a lot more going on in Spain’s cinema besides Pedro Almodóvar‘s already famous melodramas. The nightmarish nights and the urban decay of Spain’s big cities, the grim and ghostly memories of the country’s troubled past and in particular, that characteristic black humor that Spaniards domain very well. These have become the main ingredients of that tasty mix producing the dark fantasies of Spain’s new horror films.

Rubber   Offscreen 2011 mini logo thriller reviews reviews horror drama comedy Rubber   Zeno Pictures mini logo thriller reviews reviews horror drama comedy Rubber is a roadmovie about the most lonesome killer imaginable. He doesn’t talk. He doesn’t walk. He doesn’t listen. He just lurks, stalks and… blows things up.  His name is Robert, and he was the star of this year’s opening movie for Offscreen Film Festival 2011. Not one, but two of us attended the screening. Hence, another dual-review.

Ruined Heart: Another Lovestory Between A Criminal And A Whore   Offscreen 2015 mini logo romance reviews drama action No love. No story. But all the rest was interesting.

Against all odds or perhaps as to be expected, a criminal and a prostitute have sex, fall in love and run off together. A bit less against all odds and certainly more likely to be expected, the local king pin doesn’t appreciate this since we can be fairly certain here that he considers the prostitute his property. Or perhaps his wife. Doesn’t really matter. From then on, people start running…
