The Virgin Spring

Ingmar Bergman's 1960 classic is a somber fairy tale set in 14th century Sweden. Max von Sydow and Birgitta Valberg play peasant parents whose virgin daughter is brutally raped and murdered. By a bizarre twist of fate, the killers end up asking for food and shelter from the dead girl's parents, who plot a most sinister form of revenge. Despite the subject matter, it's quite beautiful. Believe it or not, it was remade by Wes Craven as the grotty 1972 slasher The Last House on the Left. ... No, really. 89 minutes
