The 20 Best Foreign-Language Horror Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Trouble Every Day’ to ‘Let the Right One In’

The 20 Best Foreign-Language Horror Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Trouble Every Day’ to ‘Let the Right One In’
Fear doesn’t need subtitles, but some of the best horror films do. J-horror, the New French Extremity, and other foreign-language scary-movie movements have provided much in the way of terrified shrieks and heightened pulses. Although dialogue may get lost in translation, blood-curdling screams never do. Horror is an especially visual genre, and one of the most universal.

The world is dark and full of terrors, especially where the movies on this list are concerned. Here are our favorite foreign language horror flicks made since the year 2000.

20. “We Are What We Are” (2010)

Horror filmmakers ruthlessly mine for metaphor, often at the expense of credibility. The tricky balance in the Mexican cannibal drama “We Are What We Are” (“Somos lo que hay”) pairs a conventional family unit with the ludicrously grotesque to chilling and absurd effect. Writer-director Jorge Michel Grau’s feature debut has the goriest signifier for underclass strife this

Chadwick Boseman Takes Revenge in New Trailer for ‘Message from the King’

Considering their lack of transparency when it comes to viewership for specific movies and shows, it’s no surprise that Netflix’s release calendar is not akin to a theatrical roll-out. While we often hear of a movie’s release many months (sometimes years) in advance, when it comes to the streaming giant, it may just be a week or two prior we’ll get a heads up that a film is arriving.

Such is the case with a new film led by Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther, 42), the old-fashioned revenge thriller. Message from the King, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall, is getting a Netflix release next week and now the first trailer has arrived. Directed by Fabrice Du Welz (Alléluia, Calvaire) and also starring Luke Evans, Teresa Palmer, and Alfred Molina, check out the trailer below for the film following Boseman’s character as he heads

Chadwick Boseman Delivers a ‘Message from the King’ in First Teaser & Clip

After breaking out by portraying two iconic figures, Jackie Robinson and James Brown, Chadwick Boseman is getting his own solo Marvel movie with Black Panther next year, but in between he got down and dirty for an old-fashioned revenge thriller. We now have the first teaser for Message from the King, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall.

Considering Boseman’s rising star power, it’s peculiar it doesn’t have U.S. distribution yet, but the film will arrive in France in May and the first teaser shows off a genre film with some considerable style. Directed by Fabrice Du Welz (Alléluia, Calvaire) and also starring Luke Evans, Teresa Palmer, and Alfred Molina, check out the first teaser below, along with a clip, for the film following Boseman’s character as he heads from South Africa to Los Angeles to get payback after his sister dies.

New Trailer For Acclaimed Belgian Horror Film ‘Alléluia’

It’s been nearly seven years since Fabrice Du Welz unveiled Vinyan to mixed reception at the Venice Film Festival, but early reviews of Alléluia, which premiered as part of Cannes’ Director’s Fortnight sidebar last year, suggest it is something of a return to form. The film stars Lola Dueñas (Talk ToHer, I’m So Excited!) as Gloria, who meets […]

Fantastic Fest Review: Alleluia

Freely adapted from the "stranger than fiction" true tale of Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez (aka the "Honeymoon Killers" of the late 1940s), the movie Alleluia is a dark and twisted love story comprising four chapters titled for its female characters and centering around a specific crime. This is the second film in Fabrice du Welz’s trilogy about the Belgian Ardennes -- the first being the 2004 horror film Calvaire.

Gloria (Lola Dueñas) lives a fairly solitary life with her young daughter, with her primary companions ibeing the corpses that she prepares as a nurse in the morgue at a local hospital. Her friend Madeline (Stéphane Bissot) convinces her to go out with the handsome and charismatic Michel (Laurent Lucas), who she has found through an online dating site. It is quickly revealed that Michel is even worse than the men your friends warned you about on the Internet --

The Blue Room | Review

Blue in the Face: Amalric’s Simenon Adaptation an Exquisite Enigma

Though actor/director Mathieu Amalric’s last directorial effort, On Tour (2010), landed him a Best Director win at the Cannes Film Festival, it never received Us distribution. Thankfully, his latest effort, an adaptation of Georges Simenon’s novel The Blue Room, won’t be subjected to the same neglect, as it’s an elegantly staged exercise of what could have easily been a straightforward nourish tale of adultery and murder. Pared down to a regal running time of barely eighty minutes, Amalric’s film is cinema of sensation, a puzzle of subtlety detailed accents and various, deliberate textures. Swift and intoxicating, by the time its final implications have been announced, what’s left is a sense of paralytic comprehension, a goading motivation for a second viewing. It’s depiction of an adulterous affair is icy, complicated, isolating, but

Tiff 2014. Correspondences #8

  • MUBI
Alleluia

Dear Fern,

Aye!—you make my festival experience sound like a superhuman toil! If anything, I'm seeing less than you, as you get the pleasures of catching up with the crème de la crème of Cannes. It seems like I see a lot because I'm often reporting on a slew of shorts, but remember, the Wavelengths shorts programs so central to my (any many others') Tiff experience are only four strong, over nearly as soon as they start, the Monday after the festival's opening night. Don't you see what I'm actually doing here? I'm luxuriating in your taking the pressure off me, handling all the much anticipated films by the big auteurs while I get to relax, scribbling notes in the margin about the smaller movies: you make my life easier! That being said, there are still some major films I need to tell you about, to begin wrapping the festival experience up.
