Foreign Films on NetflixBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t almost ran out of things to do while the Cov id runs around the world. I have streamed so many movies and read different books I have lost count. 3 months of home confinement and starting on the 4th will do that to a person. So to find things to fill the time, I have been looking at foreign films. More specifically foreign films on Netflix.
So I have compiled a list of horror films that are on Netflix. Sorry but some of them have subtitles, so be prepared to read. There are more than what I’m going to list because I haven’t watched them all. So unless I have heard good things or watched and liked it, then I will not list it. Just remember, these are not Hollywood films with multimillion-dollar budgets. So a few are kinda amateurism. But the story and acting are refreshing. Naturally, this will not be in any order at all.
The Influence 2019
Alicia is a nurse who moves back home to care for her aging and dying mother, who is in a coma. Moving there with her unemployed husband and their daughter, Alicia meets again with her younger sister Sara. Strange things begin to happen.
It started slow but picked up. A nice slow burner.
On a bloody night in a place where we are supposed to feel safe, a young man and his beloved are struggling not to reach the hospital, but to run away from it. They are trying to survive the night.
Inhuman Kiss 2019
In a far-away village, lived an innocent teenage girl, "Sai" who later discovered herself inheriting the curse of "Krasue". At night, her head would detach from her body and hunts for flesh and blood. Villagers are terrified by the deaths of their livestock and that is when the Krasue hunt begins. "Jerd" a friend joined the hunt for an unknown reason while "Noi", the childhood friend who had just came back to the village decided to stand beside Sai despite knowing the horrifying truth.
This is one of those the effects are not the best, but the story more than makes up for it.
A re-telling of an old Spanish tale that centers around Patxi, a blacksmith with a secret who lives a life of isolation away from the rest of society. When a young orphan girl from the village, Usue, unwittingly stumbles upon the hermit blacksmith, she discovers his secret - he has captured the Devil himself, and Usue has accidentally released him. Now the blacksmith has to reclaim the Devil back, all while fending off the angry townsfolk, who are looking for Usue.
I really liked this one. I am a sucker for old folk tales. So naturally, I enjoyed this. And the devil looks classical.
Stranded in rural Australia in the aftermath of a violent pandemic, an infected father desperately seeks a new home for his infant child, and a means to protect her from his own changing nature.
First, I’m American. So Australian are technically foreign. But the real reason is I am a Martin Freeman fan. So screw you, I like this movie. It is a solid under-appreciated horror drama that should get more attention than it has. My favorite of the whole list. And Natasha Wanganeen is one of the prettiest women walking the earth. So it gets listed.
The Golem 2018
During an outbreak of a deadly plague, a mystical woman must save her tight-knit Jewish community from foreign invaders, but the entity she conjures to protect them is a far greater evil.
This movie was nicely shot, well-acted, and the special effects were adequate. I liked the re-imaging of the classic story.
Hantu Kak Limah 2018
Kak Limah is discovered dead by the villager. Since then, her ghost has been spotted around Kampung Pisang, making the villagers feel restless. Enter Encik Solihin, who tries to help by shooing her ghost away from the village. Husin, Encik Solihin, and other villagers trying to overcome this problem.
Yes, it is a comedy horror. It kept me watching and made me laugh a few times.
Train of the Dead 2007
Five teenagers escape into an empty train carriage. They realized the train will be taking the passengers to their final judgment.
Not high quality, but it entertained me enough to watch the whole thing.
Whilst growing up in rural Thailand, a young orphan girl is taught the ways of magic by her grandmother. But when grandmother falls sick, Dau is lured to Bangkok to find work so that she can buy medicine. She finds herself working in a go-go bar.
A solid film with a refreshing story.Share this article on:
