W starym dworku czyli niepodleglosc trójkatów (1985)
Creepy and weird Polish art house horror. The film begins with a man murdering his wife for having an affair with his son. Upon the arrival of his cousin, his wife returns from the dead. Not as a zombie or anything, she just comes back. Nobody is THAT freaked out, and so begins a horror with the weirdest tone since The Wicker Man. It's filled with creepy songs, especially one that details the drinking of poison. Everyone ends up sleeping with everyone else, even though some are related. The film looks at complex relationships of family, and how love and possession can be closely linked. While all this is going on, and the higher class are wrapped up in their sordid affairs, and uprising is happening throughout the lower class. An oddball of a movie that doesn't scare nor frighten. It should creep you out, and confuse you in equal measure.
