I’ve seen 6 Spanish films that feature a strange cocktail of emotions — horror, sneaking paranoia, revulsion, and, bizarrely, humor.
I actually discovered 5 of these short films at the 2010 Wisconsin International Film Fest, but one of my compañeros madrileños showed me 7:35 De la Mañana once again and I was reminded of how unique these films are.
The screening at the 2010 WIFF originally contained 5 shorts (cortometrajes). See original list. Only two are available on youtube. Fortunately, they are the best two.

The following is from the Basque Country, from Northern Spain.
If this strange emotional mix is your cup of tea, I recommend the feature-length movie La Communidad.
