Except I have no idea what I'm in the mood for. I'll watch almost anything though.

Sorry to be vague. I just want to watch something good.

Last three movies I have seen, were Human Centipede (I don't know why I did but gosh do I want that time back), Evil Dead (the redo) which was meh and The Employer (which makes my top 10 worst list).

Whats good is a matter of opinion, you need to give us more.

I recommend Indochine.

French/Chinese set in the 30s starring Catherine Deneneve.

Love story come war story and the leading man is breathtakingly gorgeous.

If you like horror, No One Lives is worth a watch.

If you can get hold of a copy, I recommend Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons.

It's in Chinese with subtitles, but it has many of the qualities you listed.

Cabin in the Woods is a fun watch if you haven't already seen it.

Pan's Labyrinth (El laberinto del fauno) is a brilliant fantasy with elements of horror, but it's in Spanish with subtitles, and it might be a bit too "arty". That said, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone, regardless of their film preferences...

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the suggestions. I've noted one or two down for the future.

I spent more time trying to sort out a broadband issue last night that I'd anticipated so I didn't have time to watch anything!
