It's probably an obscure film for me to find in my area. I'll keep my eyes open for it though cause it sounds cool.

I'm telling you guys to check out that link i posted for 6 brand new J-Horror movies on 3 discs that has legendary J-Horror directors. The movies are:

Vol. 1 House of Bugs (Episode 1) In this story about an unfaithful couple, Koji believes his cheating wife may no longer be human. Unsure of what to do next, he asks his lover to look in on his wife. Someone it would seem, has lost their mind. Diet (Episode 2) When an overweight girl gets dumped by her lover, she resolves to impress him by going on an extreme diet. All goes well at first, but when she is reunited with her former lover, she begins to feel the hunger pains once again. Vol. II Snake Girl (Episode 3) Yumika has been invited by her cousin to spend their summer vacation in a rural village. But once they arrive, Yumiko is made to feel unwelcome by the locals who keep referring to her as "Snake Girl". The Wish (Episode 4) A lonely schoolboy finds block of wood in the shape of human head. He and the makeshift puppet-doll become friends and playmates. But it's not long before things go from innocent to downright scary. Death Make (Episode 6) A teenager Kuroe and a TV Director Satomi visit a warehouse to shoot a horror TV program. After they find a mysterious mask at inside there horror becomes reality.

These sound good but second Diet sounds bit silly and The wish
sounds like other movie i have see but i can't think of it at moments

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

But hey you can't beat the price for only $14.99 for all of them in one box set and what J-Horror movie doesn't sound silly or ridiculious and doesn't make any sense.

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.

Classic stuf with the english dubbing on BioZombie.  More people need to go out and see it.  Hilarious.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

I actually own Bio Zombie but haven't watched it yet but will soon along with Wild Zero, Old Boy, and Evil Dead Trap.

Just watch BioZombie with the english dubbing on.  I usually hate films with dubbing on but it adds to the hilarity of the film.

And you will probably love Oldboy. Two notes: 1.) when he eats the live octopus, that was a real octopus.  It wasnt CGI or done with computers in any way. Most people dont know it's not CGI. 2.) The hallway fight scene was done in one entire take.  It wasnt cut and spliced together parts of different shots, it is all one big long take.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

MPD Psycho is a great mini-series by Takashi Miike.  I've got the DVDs and enjoyed it.  My only complaint is the DVDs are based off the TV cut, so some of the good gore has a static effect to blur it a little.  It says on the box that the origional uncut footage was tried to be located, but no longer exists.  I think some of the static in the film is done on purpose by Miike though, kind of as a satirical aspect.

I actually heard and found MPD Psycho on DVD over at Best Buy which all the series comes in one box set. I can't remember the price for it but i found it this past week.

I found it for real cheap.  I think it was $19.99, plus I got 35% off cause Virgin Megastor was going out of business.  So I got it for less than 15.  Not too shabby.  Only 6 one hour episodes but it is a pretty good series for that kind of price.

The funny thing is Best Buy sells the MPD Psycho set for $19.99, but if you buy the individual discs, they are $14.99 each.  Strange.....

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

Hmmmm that is strange. I do have a $5 gift certificate that i got for being a Reward Zone member. So i'm just trying to figure out on what to use it on. I was going to use it on The Monster Squad. But since we have no clue when that will ever be in the store, i'll be using it on something else. Most likely that boxset that i found of the 6 different J-Horror movies which is only $14.99. So bascially i would only be paying $11 for it. Not to shabby at all.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

I know you are a big fantasy film fan too BDD, so if you can find The City of Lost Children, get it.  It's amazing.  More fantasy than anything.  Or take the journey that is Takashi Miike's Happiness of the Katakuri's.  Both are very obscure and hard to find so they may be expensive

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

I actually already own The City of Lost Children i think about a week or 2 ago. But i will definitely keep an eye out for Happiness of the Katakuri.

2.) The hallway fight scene was done in one entire take.  It wasnt cut and spliced together parts of different shots, it is all one big long take.

that fight scene is one of the greatest fights put to film so real, so visceral.

I agree.  It reminds me of a side-scrolling video game.  And the fact that it is all one shot is even more impressive.  The only thing altered in this shot is the knife in the back, but thats it.   Such a bad ass fight scene.

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

^ i liked the fact that it was sloppy. weve all seen a street fight or two in or time and more often than not there a mess. nothing looks like a movie fight but the hallway fight looked a little more real than most.

There from japanese

The Locker 1
The locker is based on the Japanese urban legend that somewhere in Shibuya (an area of Tokyo popular with teens and college kids) there is a coin locker that will give you good luck if you use it and confess your true love. This idea has been twisted and 6 college kids happen to learn the secrets and consequences of Locker 0009.

The Locker 2
The horror film The Locker follows a group of college students who believe in an old legend that if they put a coin in a special locker they will find true love. Although they do this, they are instead haunted by mysterious events and soon they begin dying.

That took so long write

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

great review. i liked Uzumaki to me at times it felt like a dash of tim burton and a bit of lovecraft all mixed with a Japanese story telling style.

I definately felt the Lovecraft in there.  I can see where you got the Burton ideas too with some of the imagery

Re: Japanese/Korean Horror movies

its such a unique flick. "snail boy" still creeps me out.
