The Mathematical Equation for Creepy

Quick way to achieve the full-blown heebie-jeebies:

An ominous bass line


A good dozen different kinds of Lynchiness




Weirdly dispirited dancing that gives the suggestion of some kind of mind control


The knowledge that it came from eastern Europe




Heebs and jeebs in abundance

The proof:

It's from a Polish film, Salto, about which I know nothing. Who new the Polish could be so subtly off-putting?

The YouTube info for the clip suggested that I also check out the dance scene from the French film Calvaire, which was more explicitly nightmarish.

  1. Wow, almost makes me wish that I too, could be melancholy Euro-trash so I could appreciate it on the level that they do.
