Okay first of all do you know any Indian or Southeast Asian (or from anywhere in the vicinity) horror movies I should check out.
And secondofly do you know any Latin American horror movies I should check out.
And terminally any other horror movie I may not have seen that you would recommend basically.
reblogging because i would like this also, and to tag tyler theredfolio because chances are he knows some
I don’t have as many recommendations as I would like. Guillermo del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone and Chronos, obviously for Latin America. I hear We Are What We Are is great, but I’ve only seen the remake, which went so far off the rails at the end as to completely ruin everything that came before. Nacho Cerda’s short Genesis is excellent, but don’t watch the accompanying film Aftermath, which has extremely graphic necrophilia. The Orphanage is spooky as hell and will make you cry. [Rec] and [Rec]2 are fucking fantastic, but are Spanish and not Latin American (as is The Orphanage, I believe). I’m a bit useless on Southeast Asian horror- I mainly watched Japanese. Shutter is Thai, and I liked it but for a few obvious jump scares and the rape scene, which I don’t remember being graphic but is understandably a deal breaker for many. The ending is haunting, though. Fast-forward past the rape. It’s pretty obvious when it’s about to happen. The Eye, a Chinese/Singaporean is fucking terrifying, though the ending is a touch weak. I hear the sequels are ass. Hope this helps!
