Plot – Spoilers:
One of the greatest home invasion films from a master. This one here is the original German version.

An Austrian family of Mum, Dad and son head to their lake home for the holidays. It’s meant to be a couple of weeks of socializing with similar neighbors and plenty of classical music. Instead, a couple of young men inflict riveting terror and grindcore on the family while also involving the viewer in their fun ‘n games.

Funny Games was remade a decade later in an almost identical US version.

    Haven’t seen funny games in years. But I remember liking this version better than the updated version. Love EUM

    Maybe breaking the 4th wall in a murder flick was cool at the time but it seems a slight gimick that kinda reduces this a mediocre b-movie slasher.

    And the remote control… fucking please.
