Treacle Jr. (2010)
An almost unnaturally happy mentally retarded man and a chronically depressed husband-on-the-run navigate a rough London in this touching and funny indie tale. Aidan Gillen makes you believe he is this hyperactive but ultimately lovable character, while Tom Fisher and Riann Steele back him up nicely. And boy, that Linda was a piece of work.

James (2008)
Compelling short film benefits from a sympathetic lead and incisive writing. Moving and so much better than some of the multi-million dollar productions.

Spider (2002)
Creepy drama about a Schizophrenic with a major Oedipal Complex evaluating his childhood. Gothic atmosphere, great subtle performance from Raplh Fiennes. Recalls films such as "The Living and the Dead" and "The Butcher Boy." Sports a twist that seems easy in retrospect but you don't see coming.

Antibodies (2005)
Although many viewers probably won't like the dramatic, symbolism-laden ending, I thought "Antibodies" was an excellent serial killer thriller, more complex in some ways than "The Silence of the Lambs." A perverted child killer forces a Christian cop to get in touch with is 'dark side,' with unpleasant results- meanwhile the cop's son is doing a little getting in touch of his own. Prepare for multiple disturbing scenes involving animals.

Citadel (2012)
Despite generally bad reviews, "Citadel" provides creepy atmosphere while delivering a surprisingly good portrayal of mental illness. A low-budget project that nonetheless delivers.

Buddy Boy (1999)
Aidan Gillen plays a stuttering, religious voyeur in this very 'indie' indie where nothing is what it seems. Littered with sad, campy, and funny moments, "Buddy Boy" is a true original with underrated substance.

Bernie (1996)
The anti-Hollywood film about a slow-witted man looking for his family, this dark, dark comedy takes the premise to sadistic extremes, adding up to a film that would never be made in America. Sometimes in poor taste, but often funny and littered with good shots.

Conjoined twins and a hooker. That's pretty much all you need to know about this strange, sad film, given top marks by Ebert upon it's release. Haunting in a way you can't quite explain.

Cool! Will definitely remember to have a look at'em :)
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Mar 27 6:20
I saw only Let the Right One In and Dead Alive. Dead Alive was really scary
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Mar 27 8:38
Here are movies I'd sure be looking out for. Thanks!!

Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Sep 6 19:51
Ive seen Red White and Blue, My Life in Pink, and Let the Right one In. I will definitely check out some of the others.

Sorry for double post.
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Nov 10 21:36
Well I've seen 12 of them. And enjoyed all twelve to one degree or another, a few of which are favorites. This tells me I must delve deeper into these titles. Great list!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Dec 19 15:28
LOL at ''Autism: The Musical''
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Dec 19 20:47
I haven't seen even a single one of them o.O Some of them looks interesting, might have a look. Great list btw!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Dec 19 21:06
The whole list added as a watchlist! I have seen three of 'em--Newlyweds, Thirst and God bless America
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Dec 19 23:42
Thank you for this! I'm watching Spider (2002) tonight. I want to make a list of my own. Perhaps a list of underrated or forgotten songs!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Dec 20 4:00
I heartily agree with: Defendor, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Sling Blade, and Dead Alive.
I want to see: Thirst, God Bless America, and Let the Right One In.
I'd suggest most Werner Herzog movies (especially the gorgeous documentary - Encounters at the End of the World), as they are almost universally superb, and it seems like no one has seen them.

Great list!
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Jan 11 11:10
I've seen Tyrannosaur and The Deep Blue Sea. They're great films! Haven't even heard of most of the others.
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Jan 15 0:43
good list - would probably benefit from more text descriptions either opinion or short summaries
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Jan 18 20:05
Great list! Seeing a few choices I would've loved to include in my own if I wasn't restricting to under a 100 ratings, such as May for example. One of my favourite horrors from the 00s! Seen 11 of these thus far, got a few good want to watches from it too :) And The Bleeding House is something I'm planning to check out ASAP over at Netflix.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Feb 24 19:40
havent seen a lot.
dont think that Defendor is necessary
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Aug 23 6:14
thank you so much for your recommendations; i discovered sweet 16 movie - great!
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Feb 17 12:11
What an obscure list. Owned a Tyrannosaur cd for quite a while now, still haven't watched it yet. Already watched The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros, Woman, Four Rooms, and Acacia. And Planning to see Bronson and Alice.
