Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

I saw the first season of MPD and it was way to fucked up for me.. I spent most of the time scratching my head at most of the stuff.. Didn't seem like horror more like a really weird episode of CSI..

Tale of Two Sisters
Shutter
The Eye
Battle Royale
Ju-On

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

Yea I really liked Dumplings but the other two were a little too abstract for me especially Miike's.. I didn't really like his entry Box..

Good to see you posting deadman.. Its been a LONG time..

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

wow i really gotta check out audition its made like everyones list!!

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

For me, Audition was just Ok, and more hype than anything else.  The film has a slow burn feel to it, which I was really diggin, the first 30-45 mins was ACE but Miike eventually took it and went totally to the other end of the spectrum with it.. and just lost me.  And now I know that's just Miike being Miike, but by the time I got to the ending I really didnt care anymore. 

Props to the torture scene and that dude in a sack was just a trip - but it doesnt make a movie for me.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

I like it.  Its mostly on my list cause I haven't seen too much Asian horror.  R-Point is an excellent Korean ghost story.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

goldensimatar - I've always wanted to see R-Point.. heard it was a good Korean film.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

It is very good.  The film may go a bit slow for some people I think but for me it moves along rather nicely.  It is not so much as scary as it is creepy with some tense moments and one or two jumps.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

Audition sort of reminds of Hostel in the sense that the torture is mostly towards the later half of the movie.  Both are great films and I love em' to death.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

Audition in my opinon is Miikes best.. Hes always off the wall and odd but this one just seemed to have that perfect slow burn to it. Its still also got that creepy feel that just oozes from it as well. You know something is wrong but you can't put your finger on it.. I think it requires several viewings for the film to fully soak in..

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

Yea, he goes pretty balls out on the gore factor for a lot of his films.  I really wanna check out his banned MoH episode "Imprint".  Heard its really disturbing but just makes me want to see it more.

Re: Your top 5 asian horror films

I would like to add Rampo Noir. I just watched it last night and it was really surreal and macabre.
