I did a Korean marathon this week.

I have seen R Point before,but its a really creepy ghost movie if
you haven't seen it.
Its about the Korean army doing covert operations in Vietnam during
the Vietnam war.

Has anyone here been to vietnam btw ?
As places like the killing fields and Angor Wat are full of creepies from what
I am told.
There are still Skulls,bones, and unwashed blood all over that area ,so just
imagine the spirit activity.

But as I was saying ,R Point is a great ghost movie.

Then I also watched ,"H", and "Tell Me Something".

Both are about some really gruesome serial murders. Also both very
entertaining .

I don't watch a lot of Korean stuff to be honest,partly because Korean
language is one I do not understand at all. Dunno why that bothers me.

I am partial to Japanese movies,many genres,but Horror is the most fun.
And I adore Chinese movies.

Some fun Japanese horror are:
Toyko Gore Police.
There was stuff in this movie I have never ever seen anywhere.Sick.Tak
Sakaguchi has a cameo(he's the guy from Versus).Part 2 is already in the works.

Death Trance.
One of Taks babies .Surreal martial arts horror,with spider people zombies and a demon of the apocalypse.
Dir en grey do the sound track,and Kentaro Seagal is in it (Steven Seagals son) .

Audition.
Its sick.Just see it.Miike is a sick sick man.

Exte.
This is more a spoof on Japanese horror movies that all have creepy hair growing demons in them.
Exte means hair extension in Japanese,so ....yah.Amusing.

I can talk about this for pages so.
As for Chinese movies ,I have been watching a lot of historically oriented stuff with a lot of
Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung. Two of my favorite actors of all time.
Speaking of Takeshi,he recently did a movie about the life of Ghengis Khan. I still haven't seen it,but it
looks kick BAD_WORD.
And last year he did his first Japanese movie since Returner in 2004.
Its called Shinigami No Seido .I forget the English title.
But he plays a Shinigami.Aka Death God. Sort of a reaper. His companion is a talking dog(and as we know,
dog backwards is.....)
Its highly amusing .I hope they do a part 2.

And lastly,I like some of the Thai Horror.
Some are very creepy. The original Shutter,Art of the Devil ,parts 1-3,and of note ,"P".

P was banned in Thailand,as it exposes the sex trade there,such that it is.
And the girl who played the main part,was disowned by her soap opera actress aunt for doing the movie.
It was made by Paul Spurrier .A british actor of some note.And a Thai porn star makes her first legit appearance in this one.
The movie was smuggled to the usa in 2004 for a NYC screening.I made sure I was there.
Its a fairly creepy possession movie,but it shows a part of Thailand that they don't want anyone to know
about.

I am also getting into more French horror,and I am an old time Argento fan.
Love the Hammer movies too.

Any other cool horror I have missed ?
Speak up !

Last night I watched "Gong Tau". The literal translation is, "Chinese
Black Magic".

A lot of remote Buddhist references,and its really gruesome and gory.
A baby mutilated with gong tau,an autopsy,a hand smashed to pulp and bone,which is then
cauterized with a blow torch to stop the bleeding. Really gory and gross.

I actually recently saw the grossest movie I have ever seen in my entire life,which is a tall statement.
Its not occult,but its seriously disturbing.
Its an Australian movie starring Alex O'Loughlin.
I LOVED him on Moonlight and The Shield,so I wanted to see this for a while.
Its called ,FEED,and its a warped take on the sexual fetish of feeders and gainers.
I also do not say its gross because the women are overweight ,but what he's does to them ...
I mean gross is all I can say,but it was worth it for the endling. Priceless.


I am going to switch over and watch some samurai movies for a bit I think.
Harikiri is preferable for now

I saw Tokyo Gore Police last year in a horror film fest and even though I'm not that into BDSM, I did like the slave character which had spikes instead of legs and arms. The way it moved was beautifully done.

I just love Asian horror films. Yes they use a lot of screaming pretty girls in school uniforms, but the horror is a lot more imaginative and... scary :D Like Shutter, the whole movie was very freaky and the end really took me by surprise. I have never seen anything like it.

Some movies you should check out (if you haven't already):
Wishing Stairs One of my faves. I love the way the "fat girl" pulls her role.
The Eye (orig.) I've seen the first one a couple of times and it still brings me the shivers (the elevator scene!!). I didn't like the sequel as much and I have yet to see the American version.
Ju-On, bot the movies 1 & 2 and the tv shows Love <3 The storyline, ghosts, even actors. The US Grudge versions are nothing compared to these.
In Love with the Dead At times it was a bit boring, but seeing it to the end was worth it. Yet another freaky movie, which bothered me for a long time.
Three Extremes, featuring three short versions of Dumplings, Cut and Box At least Dumplings is a full movie but the short version works, too. The Box is by Miike, so you know what to expect ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jD-kOr03vQ

You should also think about getting a 3 dvd collection called Tales of Terror [or Tales of Terror from Tokyo]. It has 33 short films under 5 min length, some of which are by famous directors like Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On) and Hideo Nakata (Ringu).

I have been meaning to check out a movie called Wig. It's about a woman who has cancer and loses her hair because of chemo. She starts wearing a wig but the wig is made of real hair and she starts seeing things. I suppose it goes on the same lines as the Eye. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utAB2430cAA

I've also been trying to track down a movie called Red Shoes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9x6LZ9YIo8
