Name That Arthouse Horror!

March 4th, 2016 by unkle lancifer · 27 Comments

Ever since that WITCH movie strolled into town I keep hearing folks talking about “arthouse horror.” Now, I’m not one to jump on a limiting label but if a buzz term helps a lesser seen gem get a leg up in the notoriety department, I’m all for it! I mean arthouse horror has been around forever, right? I’m sure not everyone would agree on what is and isn’t arthouse horror but around here our motto is “Horror is where you find it” and I think we all know art is in the eye of the beholder as well. The way I see it, as long as someone is either rolling their eyes or checking their watches, you’re doing something right! Anyway, below are 20 images from 20 movies that I figured could wear official arthouse horror t-shirts if they wanted to. How many do you recognize? And if I missed a favorite of yours, please feel free to share it!

LOVE the Calvaire (2004) image for HOW MANY DO YOU KNOW image. Am I right?

I would add Phase IV(that’s right, the ant movie!) and Neither the Sea Nor the Sand (aka The Exorcism of Hugh) to the already impressive list…

ooh-ooh-ooh (raising hand back up) also:
Images (Robert Altman, 1972), Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010), 13 Tzameti (2005) and Enter The Void (2009) (Enter the void is streaming on Netflix… and has literally The Best Opening Title Sequence Ever Made Ever)

I’m surprised you omitted Don’t Look Now, and the ancient classics The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu. (I was able to identify a very few, but at least I got the bumper, getting it on the second thought — the first thought was Werewolf of London.)
Is Argento too roadhouse to be art house?
