Foreign Horror

Those of you who watch foreign horror movies, what do you think about each area? These are just my own personal opinions. Here's my take on foreign horror:

Asian Horror: These are almost always excellent. They have a unique atmosphere and usually very creepy stories that just suck you in. Big on ghost stories. I mostly love the Japanese and Korean ones. I saw a horror from Thailand and didn't care for it at all. I think that one was The Maid.

Spanish Horror: I haven't seen a spanish horror movie yet that I haven't liked. I got started with Guillermo Del Toro and then went to Juan Antonio Bayona. I know, the two most popular ones but that's how I got started on Spanish horror. Excellent stuff and usually very creepy. Big on ghost stories and fantasy.

Australian Horror: I usually love these but not all of them are up to par. However, I have noticed that most Australian horror tells some kind of true story. That makes them somewhat depressing to me since it has happened in some form or another. The acting in Australian horror is either really good or really bad, depending on the movie.

English Horror: The English love zombie movies such as the 28 Days Later franchise. I think some of the movies are hit and miss but mostly hit. I love zombie movies if they're done right and 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later were the best zombie movies I've seen in a long time. The only thing I can think of that I enjoyed just as much when it comes to zombies is the Dawn of the Dead remake.

French Horror: The French have been doing well with their horror movies. I like them usually but they are very extreme and some I have had to pull. That's unusual for me since I love extreme but a few I just could not watch. My favorite is Haute Tension (High Tension) and even that one made me uncomfortable in its violence. The one I pulled was called Inside. I watched it all so I guess I didn't actually pull it but it wasn't a keeper. I sold it on Amazon because the ending was just way too much for me.
