Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

Yes i am into this type of Horror. This along with Asian and J-Horror movies are my bread and butter. It really doesn't matter which one it is, i love them all and think to this day is the best type of horror out there.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

While not exactly horror, more comedy horror, i recently saw bio-zombie, gotta say it was a really fun film.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

Don't forget about Death Note being more on the line of horror and i'm talking about the live action version to Death Note.

I am not as big into HK/Chinese, they havent put out as many good films as Japan and Korea.  Recently been getting into some more films from Thailand.  They have some good stuff.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

I own like about 40 asian horror films now but not too sure which ones are chinese, japanese, korean, etc......they're all asian to me lol.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

I think Korean horror is top of the class, followed by Japan.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

'Asian horror' has to be my current favourite horror genre at the moment. It's over the past few years it's been delivering a steady supply of fresh and genuinely eerie movies, making up for the often tired gore fest offerings of the western movie market. Evidence of their notable brilliance found in the spate of western remakes of stuff like Ringu, Ju-on (The Grudge), Dark Water, The Eye and (not horror, but nevertheless brilliant) Infernal Affairs.

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

jmh314, what makes Korean horror the best?  I may need to pick up some to watch!

Re: Anybody into HK/Chinese horror movies?

I'm a huge fan of Asian cinema period, even outside of the horror genre
