Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Like I have said in my posts prior all these film festivals help. If a distributor is present during the screenings and makes an offer we could see it soon. But even once a deal is made, you have wait quite awhile for all the special features to be compiled and all the discs to be pressed up.. Hopefully someone will pick it up..

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Just buy Natural city
             Neigbor no 13
             abnormal beauty
And last week was at the Fantasia festival in montréal!!!
Was pretty cool^^

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Neighbor No. 13 is pretty weird.. What movies did you see at the Fantasia Film Festival.. I'd like to go next year. They always show a ton of great films..

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

I have seen The Descendant , a premiere,a ghost story from a Canadian director.
I dont have seen much film cause all tickets was sold out so if you wanna go take your tickets like 1 month or 2 weeks before the festival.I was there for the films Brocken(new england wave of horror), Reincarnation(Last film of takeshi shimizu), and Feed but all tickets was sold out so..

Next year ill go for more movies!

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Dont see Neigbor no.13 yet but i have see abnormal beauty and i can say this movie is awesome! I really like when you see the man with the pipe smashing his victims with all the chains and the green teint(so lovely).lol

Ho and Art of the devil 2 was playing at fantasia but i dont see it cause i order the first and the second and i dont have them. and when you dont have seen the first one its like to broke the party to see the second before.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Asian horror movies are great.Their plotting is amazing, the problem is wit their A)randomness beginnings and B)the randomness ending.But Hey, everyone has their own flaws.I know about the mainstrem Ju-Ons and Ringus, but i tend to go for the underground movies or Takashi Miike movies.First time beginners, i suggest not to begin wit a Takashi Miike movie...well thats if u wanna keep ur sanity.i know backstories of many movies (ichi the killer...that semen in the beggining credits....he made his whole crew masturbate in a bucket for that) and for the last time he is banging not his mother but the mother of creation(some ppl know this back story joke) so calm down.My favorite movie is everyones favorite...Battle Royale.not to mention i have the regular edition, special edition,directors cut, and 3 disc extra of that movie.I also cannot stand American adaptations and continue to beg american directors to please find their own unique ideas

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Laughs.
Actually the Americans did a wonderful job with Ringu!
Neither the Japanese or American versions are faithful to Suzuki's book , if I had to choose between the two adaptations of the novel , the American's win hands down. Juon is a different story.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Yea I really liked The Ring more.. Ringu seemed to just remain in a "weird" mode for most of the film while The Ring focused more on the creepy side.. Miikes best work is Audition. That is a nice slow burn that I think any horror fan could jump right into..

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

One miss call or phone
are they anygood

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

One Missed Call is OK.. Not Miikes best by any stretch of the imagination but its worth renting.. Phone is really good.. The little girl is a great actress for only being like 6 she really does a good job..

Uzumaki The Spiral was just freaky.  I so love Asian Horror.  I have my Amazon wish list and I am just waiting for next years tax refund then I am building an Asian Horror library.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Bio-Zombie is also a good, fun Asian film.  And if you like revenge films, it doesnt get any better than Oldboy

BioZombie is funny as well with the english dubbing:

"Did you see the size of that guy's balls":lol:

Oldboy is a good film too. That scene though with the guy eating that live octopus was nasty though lol.

This sounds like a good one. Is it out on region 1 dvd? And does the killer wear a mask or anything?
