Insomnia (Criterion Collection) (1997)
Not Rated
  This 1997 Swedish film is fantastically atmospheric, moody, suspensful, and a bit creepy.
Insomnia (2002)
  The remake by Christopher Nolan is not too bad.. but the 1997 original is far superior.
Open Your Eyes (1997)
  Open Your Eyes - Here is the mysterious original film from Spain that inspired Vanilla Sky.
Vanilla Sky (2001)
  Vanilla Sky is the Hollywood remake of Open Your Eyes.
Ringu (1998)
Not Rated
  Ringu - The original from Japan. Inspired a sequel, prequel, and the Hollywood remake.
The Vanishing (Criterion Collection) (1988)
Not Rated
  In 1993 Hollywood remade this eerie and interesting Dutch film. The American version is not available on DVD. But not to worry, this is the one to see. Both films were directed by George Sluizer but this 1988 original is far more interesting and spooky.
