Too bad it wasn't Moozz's cup of tea, I'll still give it a try though. :D I recently watched a Norwegian film titled Syk Pike, the international title is apparently Sick of Myself. A bored/boring young woman deliberately gives herself a disfiguring skin disease, because she can't think of anything else to get attention. Pretty grotesque black humor, just up my alley. Almost veers into Cronenbergesque body horror at times. In the end, the treatment of the themes of narcissism, social media etc ends up being a bit ham-handed, though. I rarely wish for films to be longer than they actually are, but this one could have benefited from extra 20 min or so. Still, very glad I saw this, and look forward to the director's future work.
Quote from: Phenol on June 28, 2023, 08:31:46 PMHave you seen In my Skin (Dans ma peau) from 2002? If not I think it's worth your time. Very similar idea. Woman gets wounded, finds out that she likes that and descends into self destruction. There's a few very slow paced and gruelling self harm scenes in there. It's slow, but I liked it.

Quote from: Atrophist on July 20, 2023, 10:40:40 PMVeneno para las Hadas (Poison for the Fairies), Mexican horror/fantasy/fairytale from the 80's. If a horror film can ever be described as "adorable", this is probably it. There's no gore, violence or jump scares. However the ending is quite shocking and even rather transgressive, if you think about it. Also, a very heavy contender in "evil kids" genre. Recommended!
