Japan is the undisputed master of horror. That's a fact. So, what are some of your favourite Japanese horror movies?

 

I really love the Ju-On series. It's probably one of the most terrifying horror series I've ever seen. 

 

I have to say this, though: I really love how Japanese horror is more often than not atmospheric rather than bloody and gory. I hate blood and gore because of the way most people use it. They try to use it as the main scare. Gore doesn't scare me, it only grosses me out.

 

What kind of Japanese horror would you recommend?

Ju On is literally terrifying. 

My childhood @ home was ruined because I was scared she + blue boy would appear in my tub, closet, stairs, etc.

Yo, dude, I also love the Juon series. My favorite's the first 2000 one. It's such a rollercoaster, I've never felt so terrified yet sympathetic towards a monster before u_u
Also, I agree about gore. I'onno, blood just doesn't do it for me. Looks cheap and gross in a non-scary way. I need emotional build up.

 

edit: oop, I can't answer your last question. My bad
edit again: This topic got brought up between a friend and I and he was like, "Ichi the Killer or Audition" so yeah. *thumbs up*

The Ju-On franchise is also my favorite, but I also really like:

  • Audition
  • Apartment 1303
  • Ringu (Japan's The Ring)
  • Noroi The Curse 
  • Suicide Circle
  • Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night (It's supposed to take place after America's Paranormal Activity 1)

I watched a good Japanese BDSM film ages ago, not really horror, though it was hilarious.

I was sick when I watched this one, so imagine having fever and watching this at the same time. Since then, I'm not really into horror movies anymore  :lol: .

 

I can watch them though, but they're not my favorite.

Oh, does anyone know any that are about the paranormal? Bonus points if they have Shinto elements in them.

Every Japanese horror movie I've watched didn't scare me whatsoever, I'm def going to watch some of these tonight.
