My favorite horror flicks may be, by and large, those made in the US of A, but by no means are any of us laboring under the delusion that America has the market cornered on the genre. I always relish the chance to see what other countries have to offer, and I have to say I'm intrigued by Brazil's When I Was Alive

Bloody-Disgusting has the first trailer for the film, which appears to reside in the strange subgenre of "homecoming horror." From the Wikipedia synopsis...

"Junior (Marat Descartes) back to live with his family after he lost his job and got separated from his wife. Upon arriving in the house that once was his home, he feels like a stranger and spends his days on the couch of the old Senior (Antonio Fagundes) brooding over the separation, unemployment and dreaming of the young tenant Bruna (Sandy Leah). After finding a few objects that belonged to his mother, Junior begins to want to know all about the history of the family and develops a strange obsession with the past, passing to confuse delusion and reality."

No, there aren't any subtitles, but I found that the language barrier actually made the trailer more eerie; having to rely solely on imagery, music, and sound design. Take a gander at the trailer and let us know what you think.
