A sense of wrongness?

For reasons best known to my brain, I've been thinking about films/TV shows that just don't fit the standard pattern. They're not necessarily bad, just somehow 'not right'. They don't quite fit the accepted pattern and this can be rather jarring, even if script, performance, visuals etc are good.

Examples so far are Fulci's THE BLACK CAT (giallo set in England with a multinational cast), and Stephen Weeks' 1974 film GHOST STORY (filmed in India but set in England, starring Marianne Faithful). Oh, and there's the obscure pilot for a BBC Lovecraftian drama starring Paul Darrow from Blake's 7.

Any others spring to mind? Or am I being obscure/weird above and beyond?
