Not to be confused with the 2006 erotic french film "The Exterminating Angels," Luis Bunuel's 1962 fantasy, The Exterminating Angel, is a milestone in Spanish-language cinema, which laid the groundwork for the magical realism found in Victor Erice's "The Spirit of the Beehive" (1972) and the early films of Guillermo de...l Toro.

Bunuel, known as the "father of cinematic Surrealsim" (IMDB.com), places his elitist subjects in a bizarre dinner party scenario with no escape.     Much like Kubrick's "The Shining," very much influenced by Bunuel's work, "The Exterminating Angel" draws upon horror imagery to juxtapose the mundane with the surreal.
