6 Must-See Spanish Thrillers

6 Must-See Spanish Thrillers Spanish film directors have been releasing impressive thrillers over the past decade or so. Thought-provoking, gripping, and visually stimulating, these films are worth checking out on your favorite cable channel or DVD rental subscription: Broken Embraces (2009). Harry Caine, a blind filmmaker, is forced to revisit some painful moments from his past. This film has the look and feel of the hard-boiled detective story or noir genre, yet the film is shot in extreme color, which adds an interesting dimension to the story. Featuring Penelope Cruz, Broken Embraces is directed by Pedro Almodovar and won critical acclaim upon its release. The Orphanage (2007). Young couple Laura and Carlos move their children to Laura’s childhood home, where she plans to open an orphanage for handicapped children. Her son starts communicating with an invisible friend, which seems innocent enough at first, but takes a serious turn for the fearful when Laura’s son disappears. Who is this invisible friend? [REC] (2007). Trapped in a quarantined Barcelona apartment building with residents, firefighters and a growing horde of ravenous zombies, television reporter Angela (Manuela Velasco) and her cameraman, Pablo, record brutal deaths and terrifying events while trying to stay alive. Filmed entirely from unseen Pablo’s point of view, this tension-filled Spanish horror film thrills viewers with its aggressive action. This film was remade into a major Hollywood release entitled “Quarantine”. Shiver (2008) It’s hard enough being a teenager, but when you’re a teenager with a physical difference, life is pretty much unbearable. This is Santi’s reality in the film Shiver. A young man with a severe sunlight allergy, Santi and his mother relocate to an isolated village in the mountains whose residents are less than welcoming. After a strange series of events start to occur and Santi becomes a suspect in a series of murders, he starts to think that perhaps his old life wasn’t so bad after all. Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) Director Guillermo del Toro creates a fantastical but fearful world full of eerie but enchanting creatures in this film, often described as a “fairy tale for adults”. Life becomes pretty unbearable for young Ofelia when she is forced to live with her controlling army officer stepfather. She escapes by creating imaginary worlds that are much more pleasant. One day she meets a faun who leads her into a mysterious labyrinth. Soon, the imaginary becomes real as Ofelia comes face-to-face with a battle of good vs. evil. The Devil’s Backbone (2001) Set in 1939 at the end of the bloody Spanish Civil War, a 10-year-old boy named Carlos is left alone in an orphanage by his tutor. Carlos tries to settle into his new surroundings, but the cast of characters that round out the rest of the film make it difficult for him. Worse, a ghost of one of the orphanage’s former residents, Santi, has grown attached to Carlos, but reminds him incessantly that “Many of you will die.” As Carlos and his fellow residents soon learn, Santi’s prediction is closer to the truth than most of them would like. Directed by Guillermo del Toro.
