Spanish Películas de Terror

At least I call them horror movies: Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone, The Orphanage. The films are definitely Spanish, definitely scary and there is a bit of the supernatural in each one. They're all about children which effects the mood, less about the jumping-out 'Boo!' terror and more about psychological responses to strange and stressful goings-on. Genuinely chilling, and for you non-Spanish speakers don't be put off by the language difference. Listen in Spanish and read the subtitles, it adds to the atmosphere.
