The Bar “dazzling mystery, suspense, and escalating hysteria”
There are many good Spanish sci-fi movies out there. Among these, it is worth mentioning the Rec series of movies, which I highly recommend to any Resident Evil movie fan. Then, there are emotional fantasy and sci-fi Spanish movies like the ones directed by Guillermo del Torro (Pan’s Labyrinth – a beautiful masterpiece that should not be missed, or The Devil’s Backbone).
In the Spanish sci-fi movie The Bar, a mysterious and possibly infectious event is happening outside a Madrid bar. As a result, a group of random people is locked down in the bar. Then gradually the paranoia takes place and they turn on each other. Once again, Álex de la Iglesia is a master in depicting human relationships, building up tension and paranoia.
