Woo Asian horror! I have a pretty big collection. I'd mostly recommend the Japanese ones, but Korea has some gems, like The Host and Tale of Two Sisters. (Recently been watching the 6-part Kingdom series on Netflix, too, and it's really good! Zombies in 16th century Korea!)
Guess I'll just list some J-horror favourites:
- I think Ringu, Ju-on, and Dark Water probably are the best ones.
- Kairo's well worth a look (even though it's lengthy)
- Suicide Circle has a fantastic opening and plenty of dark humour, plus serious bits.
- Tetsuo: The Iron Man and its sequel are fun (albeit very weird) classics!
- I think Uzumaki's unfairly disliked (though the manga is better).
Into the Mirror is the only one with a worthwhile US remake (the remake, 'Mirrors', is a fun romp, whereas the original never really came together).>>42114315
'Imprint' in the Masters of Horror series is by the same director and is also only really worth it for the (even more intense) torture scene, plus the whole thing's only an hour long, so I recommend that over Audition.
