Fun Fridays – Director’s Favourite Films – Ben Wheatley

Hi Film Folk!

This week sees the release of Sightseers’, a dark comedy thriller set in the countryside. But where did all these chilling and humourous British films, such as Kill List and Down Terrace, come from? The answer is the director The Film Doctor Team have chosen for this week’s Fun Friday:

Ben Wheatley.

Watch the dark and cruel films that inspired Ben’s…ahem…dark and cruel films!


Here is Mr. Wheatley’s list:

1. Come and See (Klimov, 1985).

2. Threads (Jackson, 1984).

3. Ghosts…of the Civil Dead (Hillcoat, 1988).

4. Cannibal Holocaust (Deodato, 1980).

5. Ladybird Ladybird (Loach, 1994).

6. Don’t Look Now (Roeg, 1973).

7. The Thing (Carpenter, 1982).

8. Full Metal Jacket (Kubrick, 1987).

9. Dawn of the Dead (Romero, 1978).

10. Videodrome (Cronenberg, 1983).
