Next of Kin (1982)

What if The Shining wasn't in the snowy hills of Oregon, but instead found itself in Australia? What if a woman found herself repeating the same horrors that her mother had faced twenty years before?

Alice or the Last Escapade (1977)

A French surrealistic retelling of Alice in Wonderland with Sylvia Kristel in the lead?
