Believe it or not, I don't just live for blood and guts. No no no. I love the make you check under your bed, creepy skin crawling, what was that noise type of horror to. Where can you find such beauties? Simple: Asian Tartan Extreme. I first found "One Missed Call" and it was love from there. These are the types of films that the U.S. tries to duplicate but always fails miserably, except maybe in the first "The Ring" and "The Grudge" movies, of which the sequels stunk. Here are a few to check out:
The Red Shoes: Loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson book, a pair of shoes take over the owner with no good results.
Ringu: Where the idea for "The Ring" came from. Bits of this are different than the U.S. version, but that is to be expected. Much more cerebral for sure.
Oldboy: Kidnapped man seeks revenge on those who tortured him.
Ju-on: Original form of "The Grudge". FANTASTIC MOVIE!!!!! Even the sequels are awesome, but only the originals.
Infection: You don't have enough hand sanitizer to clean off this germ.
Dark Water: Again, the U.S. tried and landed on its ass in this remake. Rent-controlled doesn't always mean ghost free...
Just trust me, okay. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed!
