Topic: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

I'm kinda getting into these weird surrealist films (Begotten, Eraserhead, Videodrome...) and these psychological horror films (Jacob's Ladder, Rosemary's Baby, The Shining...) and I want to find the films that are the craziest among all of these psychological and surrealist horror films there.
Like terror is present every where and there is total madness and fear in the characters and such stuffs. Like WASC remake and TBWP....
So what films do you propose me towatch from my goût du film?

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

Here are some that come to mind.

Street Trash
Repulsion
Carnival of Souls (Or)
The 'Video Nasty' Possession (1981)

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

I love Repulsion, definitely check that one out.

Street Thrash... hum... I've watched it and find it gory and fun only. Not terrifying. I'm also definetely watching Repulsion after the arrogant movie trailer that still appears in the 60s.

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

In the Mouth of Madness is crazy and surrealist like Videodrome...also check out Brain Dead (1990... not to be with confused with the Peter Jackson movie), but if you want a real head trip of a movie check out Suspiria.  A Nightmare brought to life on the screen!

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

Fulci films like City of The Living Dead or The Beyond are surreal

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

Shaitani Dracula  (YouTube link.  It's not even on IMDB!)
Mystics in Bali (1981)
Naked Lunch (1991)
Evil Cult (2003)
Blood Mask: The Possession of Nicole Lamoureaux (2007)
Basketweave (2006)
The House that Screamed (2000)
Sickness House (2006)
Intercessor: Another Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare (2005)
Skinned Deep (2004)
Corpse Grinders 2 (2000)
Ankle Biters (2002)
Ax 'Em (1992)
Terror Toons (2002)
Feeders 2: Slay Bells (1998)
Nightslave (1989)
Hausu/House (1977)

Most of these are so inept they defy logic.  Some are just so weird you're left thinking, "What the heck was that?"  A few have premises that even I couldn't come up with in a fevered nightmare state.

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

Huh, I guess I got a new name!  lol

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

He must have seen the long list of recommendations and just assumed it was me. big_smile

Good point, but a monkey vs. Kurt Russell....

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

And a monkey with a knife, no less.  That rates right up there with the monkey with the straight razor in Phenomena.

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

In the Mouth of Madness,Riding the Bullet,Absentia...

Probably for the best, since if watches any of them, he can blame you afterwards...

Re: The most.... surrealistic, craziest and defies total madness films

Shaitani Dracula was awesome (in a horrible horrible horrible way), but Az's review of it is a must before it is viewed.

I was trying to remember who I inflicted that one on, lol
I'm not sure if my review even does it justice (injustice?).

Beyond the Black Rainbow - haven't seen
Antichrist
Black Ice - LOW budget
Sweet Movie
Subconscious Cruelty
The Order- A POS IMO, I bought this for a pretty penny too...
5150 Rue de Ormes (SP?) Thought this movie was amazing
Where the Dead go to Die - Animated
Jacobs Ladder - of course
Blue Sunshine - also haven't seen

that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
