El Espinazo del Diablo The Devil's backbone by Guillermo del Toro( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most personal film by Guillermo del Toro,... is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish melange that, like his later Pan's Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones"--Container
La mala educación Bad education by Pedro Almodóvar( Visual )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1980 Madrid, filmmaker Enrique Goded is scrambling for inspiration. A bearded young man arrives at his production office, claiming to be his old parochial school friend Ignacio Rodriguez. Ignacio has written a story called "The Visit" about their early experiences with a sexually predatory priest named Manolo, which would make a great project--but only if he can play the lead. Enrique takes the story home and reads. And reads. Filled with standard deceits, double-crosses, passions, desires, seductions, crimes of the flesh and of lucre, this film noir thriller is appropriately convoluted and dark, and involves blackmail, false identities, lust, drug addiction, and cover-ups--just for starters--since the story we see may or may not be the one that Enrique read

In this grim crime melodrama, fascist Spanish taxi drivers unite to become a xenophobic vigilante force dedicated to eradicating all undesirables from the streets of Madrid. Velasco is the leader of the murderous cabbie clan that is comprised of Dani and his father Reme, the skinhead Nino and the nearly insane ex-policeman Calero. Velasco's daughter Paz secretly desires Dani, but her dreams are dashed when she learns about the nefarious activities of Dani and her father. The gang's self-appointed mission is to kill all undesirable foreigners (Arab immigrants are a favorite target), gays and lesbians, blacks and drug addicts. Internal turmoil comes from the burgeoning romance between Paz and Dani coupled with Dani's gradual realization that "the family" may be in the wrong
