Default Looking for obscure films.

Looking for foreign films in the vein of Roy Andersson or crazy horror films not directed or made in the US. I have a region free Blu-Ray player so region coding does not matter. Would love some suggestions. Thanks!

Veronica I hear is really good. It's a Spanish horror movie on Netflix. Don't know if it's still there, but it might be worth checking out if it is.

Visit They Shoot Pictures Don't They and peruse the lists. Lots of stuff that would be considered obscure to general audiences.

Not really sure if its what you are looking for but Jacques Tati might be sort of same-ish. Might be mistaken but remember Roy being inspired by Tati.

Also for crazy horror outside of US you should try Mondo Macabro releases. "The wild side of world cinema". There is all sorts of stuff there.

I’m not really sure if this is considered obscure, but I have heard it is batsh** insane.

You'll find some lengthy lists on iMDB and Letterboxd with hundreds of suggestions!

Some random ones off the top of my head...
• Next Door (Naboer)
• The Bothersome Man
• A Cure For Wellness (US, not that obscure but a wild ride)
• The Cleaning Lady
• The Devil's Backbone
• Raw
• Ex Drummer
• Border

I’ve got some good ones on my shelf that are so obscure they don’t show up on the sites directory 😂

I can recommend Parasite from Bong Joon-ho and Delicatessen from Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro. They are both not exactly obscure but definitely worth watching. They have an absurd and dark twist but also bring some kind of humor into it.

Deends on your definition of crazy and obscure

Kiarostami's 'Close Up' is pretty crazy to me. But not visually or anything.

Underground
Uncle Bonmee
Holy Motors
Dogtooth
Jigoku
Kuroneko

Obscure horror, you say?
What about these by Norwegian director Reinert Kiil?
Hora (The *****)
and
Inside the *****

Or these slightly less obscure from Tommy Wirkola:
Død snø (Dead Snow)
and
Død snø 2 (Dead Snow 2)

It's not exactly obscure, but I find a lot of people still haven't heard of it.

Poison for the Fairies

Watched it the other day. This film influenced Guillermo del Toro majorly.

On the topic of norwegian horror, we could also mention the one in your avatar, "Trollhunter" (Trolljegeren). Then there's a fairly recent one, named "Valley of Shadows" (Skyggenes dal). It's not really scary or anything, but has a few interesting ideas, and sets the tone of the movie fairly well; it kinda plays on norwegian folklore too, but not in any direct sense, so unless you're well familiar with it, it might not be particularly noticeable.
