(Like many silent films that would influence the genre of horror, this is not really a horror film. It's more of a drama/thriller laced with doom and gloom)

(Not strictly horror, but a mystery thriller that Mario Bava was inspired by when he made Blood and Black Lace. Certainly a precursor to the Italian "giallo" sub-genre.)

The House (1983)
1983 (March)
Iceland
Dir: Egill Eðvarðsson
(Though it's more of a psychological drama with supernatural overtones, this could be considered Iceland's second horror film, behind the above mentioned Icelandic TV movie from 1977, The Crimson Sunset. It would be 26 years later, in 2009, when the first "hardcore" (feature-length) horror film would emerge from Iceland with Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (aka Harpoon); that is unless you count the silly Troma-esque shot-on-video comedy/horror hijinks of Knight of the Living Dead, from 2005, which is also listed below.)
