As exhaustive a list as I could come up with. I hope to get around to watching a number of those I haven't yet seen. Any suggestions of where to start would be very appreciated! And if I've missed anything or made any errors please speak up!

So far I've only seen 2 of these, and they're book-ending your watched section. I'll keep an eye on this list!
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 20 18:15
Great list! I recommend you not watching Cold Prey 2, it's horrible. Dark Woods & Hidden starts out promising, but they get horrible towards the end.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Aug 21 23:21
Most Norwegian horror films can actually be skipped. :p I really suggest that you skip Backwoods, as it is beyond terrible. Lake of the Dead is a Norwegian classic, even though it didn't capture me completely!

Cool, you liked Sauna. Since there are no longer explanations, it would be interesting t to know why did you like it? 8)
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 28 10:13
Great suggestions... ;)
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 28 10:30
Thanks for the feedback guys!

@drugs- my impressions on Sauna (and Room 205, for that matter) can be read here: http://www.listal.com/list/monthly-movie-journal-august-2011

I havent seen it, but you might want to add "Vampyr" by Carl Theodor Dreyer from 1932. Looks good.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 28 15:40
Good list , for me Dark Floors was fanny
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 29 6:22
Kuutamosonaatti has also more comedic sequel Kadunlakaisijat.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Aug 29 7:05
@CRza- I thought about including Vampyr because the Dreyer is Swedish. But since it's shot and produced in Germany and it's a German-language film I decided it can't really be considered a Swedish film. Likewise I think most everyone considers Dreyer's masterpiece Passion of Joan of Arc" a French film, not a Swedish film. That's my reasoning anyway, but I appreciate the suggestion!

@ Succubi-- Ah, you must be talking about Book of Fate, tagged on IMDB as action/horror/sci-fi, Western, fantasy. Added! Thanks!

Stopping by to let you know that this list has been included in: http://www.listal.com/list/2010-films-10-worst

and to let you know that Cold Prey II might be watchable, but III is totally skipable. :)

If you still take suggestions, here's one, though this was for a long time sort of a lost gem and was only recently discovered and shown at festivals here. I hope there will be a DVD or something coming up.
