They are regarded equally. I saw the 2013 one but not the foreign language original. So, if you want to stay with your theme this year that would be 2010, and I'd be happy to join you.

It's like the things we say can have an impact on the world...

Ideas of movies for me:

Halloween
It follows
The Babadook
Let the Right One In
Carrie
The fly

I will try to watch at least four in two months. Maybe more, maybe I will rewatch something too.

All of these are quite good, two in my TOP 100

Yes. Psychological terror and disturbing content.

It is my plan to be watching the 1997 version of Funny Games this Shocktober.

Oh, that's gonna be fun. I've got the Universal Monsters set as part of my other project, so that'll be happening. I hope to get to a few more Hammer stuff, too, plus whatever else I come across.

It's a satire about golf, in the spirit of Necessary Roughness
