Little Joe's 'Mad Scientist'

Jessica Hausner's reinvention of Frankenstein as a female scientist in a very different world than

Mary Shelley's original one. Deliciously eerie and smart. The trailer is here.

Mati Diop's Atlantics

One of the very gripping reinventions of the poetics of horror. 

Atlantics - Best recommandation on Netflix 2019. See here for the trailer.

For the International Film Festival Rotterdam I made a video essay (in the Critics Choice program) which you can see here.

System Crasher

Nora Fingscheidt's System Crasher: Must see... Chilling, Moving, Desperate, Powerful.

See the trailer here.

Spoor

Spoor (Agnieszka Holland 2017) is an amazing and unusual 'eco-horror' film that is worthwhile

checking out. Here's the trailer. It takes you through the seasons with many surprising elements.

Pixote

Pixote by Hector Babenco about street children in Brasil fro 1980 has lost nothing of its power.

The vividness and incredible hardship of the protagnist remain haunting. See here for a 

Trailer. On MUBI which is absolutely the bust curated online platform for 

discoveries and rediscoveries, full of  gems of world cinema. Highly recommended.
