Today we will bring completely insane movies into your stories that will shake your mind. The options listed bring challenging plots that never offer concessions to the viewer. It’s also worth saying that the indicated films demand a lot from those who watch them, with psychological contents and, sometimes, graphics that are not indicated for all kinds of audiences. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Deliverance (John Boorman, 1972)A group of middle-aged friends decides to practice canoeing in a small town lake. However, the residents of the place present themselves as less pleasant than the men thought, leaving them in rustic and extreme situations. ‘Deliverance’ initially seems to be a simple suspense with a productive cast, magnificent settings and a dynamic direction. However, as the plot unfolds, we perceive increasingly disturbing events being exposed in each scene, resulting in an exacerbated event that leaves anyone impacted.
9º – Wake in Fright (Ted Kotcheff, 1971)A teacher from a small Australian city decides to spend his vacation in Sydney. However, in the middle of his trip to the city, he decides to stop for a rest in another unknown small town, called Bundanyabba, known for its happy inhabitants as Yabba. In the place – always under intense and relentless heat – the man ends up getting involved with gambling in a bar, losing all his money that he would use to get to and live in Sydney. Well, it is from this moment on that we will follow the ordeal of the character who finds himself trapped in Yabba, a place seen as heaven for its inhabitants, but faced as worse than hell by the poor teacher. A supreme masterpiece of Australian cinema in the 1970s, ‘Wake in Fright’ is a nightmare in the form of a film, exploring one of the most cruel and terrifying journeys of a character ever seen in the seventh art. A film to be tasted in all its strangeness during its 109 minutes of projection.
8º – The Sender (Roger Christian, 1982)After a frustrated suicide attempt, a mysterious and disturbed man is sent to a psychiatric clinic. Instead, the man ends up attracting the attention of a doctor who finds in him something that goes beyond anything that the human being understands as normal. ‘The Sender’ is a pearl completely forgotten from the incredible 1980s. Its surprising plot and its direction that manages to create an atmosphere of unretouchable terror set the perfect tone for the film to unfold.
