Good Japanese Horrors.....

Postby Kdar » Mon 02.12.2007 2:54 pm

I watched some...

Watched Audition... and Imprint (only I hate that director used english not Japanese) not long time ago. And I loved them, espatially Audition.

What other good horrors?

I know there Japanese original "Ring" and "Grudge".. but...

But I looking for something a bit different.. and interesting at same time.

(I don't really look for some thing that is more scarier.. but more for something that filmed well)

Well, if you like Takashi Miike (Audition) then you might want to check out his other films.
I hate horror films, personally... I mainly watched these films just to diversify my Japanese language. But anyway... I have seen these by Miike.

Ichi the Killer
Visitor Q
Happiness of the Katakuris

You might like Ichi the Killer. Visitor Q is more.... taboo.... to say the least. And The Happiness of the Katakuris was just weird. Not scary. Just weird.

Asian horror movies are terrible in general.

btw ICHI and Visitor Q arent really horror movies.

Jiatsu Saakuru (Suicide Club), maybe?
Lovely opening scene of mass suicide in a subway, trippy singing/raping/killing stuff in a bowling alley, skinning people, kids covered in blood, etc.

Stacy (or Stacy: Attack of the Schoolgirl Zombies) is a pretty low budget, gory Japanese movie. It's great. Although Wild Zero is my favorite. Check those out if you haven't.
I was going to say Shikoku as well, but I guess that movie is kind of similar to the Grudge, maybe. I don't know it may be worth checking out.
