The Japanese are stuck on ghosts (with wet hair) or torture porn, neither of which do much for me as ghost stories usually bore me (sorry, not ALL but most) and I prefer creepy to gory as gory is just about pain not fear. The Koreans have made some great revenge and serial killer movies but that is kinda the fringe of horror as they CAN be categorized as CRIME THRILLERS etc. THE HOST, for ME, was pure boring garbage.
I like some of the stuff coming from the Philipines. Its not a whole lot but their lore has some interesting creatures like the vampiric ASWANG which prefer to devour babies and pregnant women (!). LOL. Their island and jungle settings also give a feeling of isolation. There arent a lot of flicks from there but Im hoping.
WHICH Asian country puts out your favorite and WHY?
