Dogtooth

Dogtooth

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos

In an effort to protect their three children from the corrupting influence of the outside world, a couple transforms their home into a gated compound of cultural deprivation and strict rules of behavior. But children cannot remain innocent forever. When the father brings home a young woman to satisfy his son's sexual urges, the family's engineered "reality" begins to crumble, with devastating consequences. Like the haunting, dystopic visions of Michael Haneke and Gaspar Noé, DOGTOOTH punctuates its compelling drama with moments of shocking violence, creating a biting social satire that is as profound as it is provocative.

Three teenagers live isolated. But children cannot remain innocent forever.

Cast: Christos Stergioglou, Michele Valley, Angeliki Papoulia, Hristos Passalis, Mary Tsoni

allisonjensen55's review pretty much sums up why this is a good, unconventional horror movie. I gave it 4/5 only because I went into this knowing what this movie was and reframed it in my mind as a quiet, sci-fi horror for fun (what does it mean when the father says level 5 is almost completed? are those three people really the children of those people who claim to be married?? What if this is all one big science experiment???) Anyway, definitely worth a watch. I had to skip past the cat part. I can't handle animal death. Everything else was fine. Even the sexual parts feel sterile and alien, like someone had described to extraterrestrials what human bodies typically looked like during coitus.
