Unconventional Christmas films have always been a favorite of mine, whether it's a film about a murderous snowman or an unhappy gingerbread man, I'm usually on board for spicing up the dullness of Santa and snow. While “The Christmas Tale” does feature a Santa, it takes place in a warm palm tree laden town in Spain. But the focus here is not on Christmas, it's on how to approach someone who has put themselves on the naughty list.

There is nothing I find more terrifying than looking for a place to live. Real estate agents, potential frat guy neighbors, finding a place where I can reside in peace; the entire process is altogether unappealing and “To Let” knows it. The 4th film I have viewed from the Spanish collection “6 Films to Keep you Awake,” “To Let” is an exercise in residential terror.

Well here’s something I never thought I’d say, “Wow, that new Antonio Banderas movie looks pretty good”. To be fair he was only the producer of “Before The Fall” but still, from the trailer below this film looks to be pretty good.

It's only a possibility. It's only a possibility. It's only a possibiliy, or at least that is what Juan thinks when he moves into an older house with his wife, Sonia and baby. From the start they are sublimely happy, painting and wallpapering the dust from their aging abode, until they are given a box of used baby items, including a baby monitor, by friends of their parents.

Except for her best friend, Estrella is an average teenage girl. Her mother works late nights as a nurse in the hospital and her dad left them long ago. Estrella fills her unsupervised hours watching horror films and reading horror fiction. “A Real Friend” opens with what appears to be lost footage from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or at least the Spanish beach massacre part... Wait a minute.

“Six Films to Keep You Awake,” is a collection of horror films by Spanish directors made for Spanish television. Redundant I know, but I find it's hard not to be overcome with jealousy that these films played on Spanish television uncut, while here in the States you have to shop for, or use Netflix to find this kind of material. While I remember hearing a buzz about these films last year when they first came out, I hadn’t gotten a chance to watch all six of them until now (thank you, Bloody Good Horror).

With the exception of “Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI,” the horror paintball market is virtually untapped. Leave it to those kooky Spaniards to pick up the ball and run with it.

Been dying to check out the festival hit "Timecrimes", but haven't had a chance to pick it up yet? Well, here's your chance to stream it online, as it's now available for Netflix streaming.

Santi, a high-schooler who attends night school because of his allergy to sunlight, moves with his mother to a rural town located in a heavily wooded area in the mountains, where there is only 5 hours of sunlight a day. They take residence there in hopes that Santi can continue a more normal life and make more friends, but soon after moving, suspicious murders begin to take place.

Four mathematicians are trapped in a room with the walls slowly closing in on them. They are given a series of mathematical puzzles to solve within one minute in order to stop the room from shrinking. If they can't solve the puzzles in time, how long will it take before the walls eventually crush them to death? Oh, and don't forget to show your work.
