The International Festival of Contemporary Cinema launched in Mexico City on Tuesday, and according to The News, there are five films on the program that are ‘so bizarre, so completely outside any conventional genre, that it appears organizers liked them, but couldn’t figure out what to do with them.’
So a category called ‘11:59' was created for the five films, which will be screened one minute before midnight because of ‘interest, audience and the intensity of their content.’
Those five unusual films, accompanied by their trailers, are:
‘Låt den rätte komma in’ (Let the Right One In): What’s more terrifying than a Scandinavian children’s love story? The answer, probably, is this film, in which the little girl is a vampire, writes the News.
