Horror movies are fun, right? Bikini wearing co-eds in obviously dangerous situations, crazed mad-men running around with violent gardening equipment, buckets of blood being thrown at the screen. Sure, we love all that, but every now and then it's nice to have something a little bit more high concept. And that's where Open Grave comes in.

Spanish director has delivered a mind-bending terror thriller starring (District 9, Elysium), (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), (Contagion), and (Valkyrie, Wanted). What makes it so original? Well, check out the video and synopsis below:

The high-concept Open Grave follows a man (Copley) who wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together — before it's too late.

How do you like your horror? Slashy and gorey, or chilling and mind-bending? Let us know below.
