H is for Horror

I've recently decided to start using my brother's Netflix to watch horror movies. In about four days, I've managed to watch about 6 movies.

  • Arang
  • Muoi
  • Ju-on 2
  • The Grudge
  • The Grudge 2
  • The Grudge 3

The first three were foreign language films. Arang and Muoi were Korean, while Ju-on was Japanese. The Grudge series is the American adaptations of the Ju-on series.

I like Asian-style horror movies, because it's not just some massive splatter-fest. The Asians drew upon their myths and legends when they created these movies. They focused on the people in the movies, and thinking back... Not once did the protagonists completely defeat the "monster".

Sorry, if I spoiled anything for you...

  1. Sounds like a great deal of fun! What I'd give to have enough time to do nothing but watch movies! *swooning here*
    Good luck with being an aunt and with your brother and all... sounds like some high drama to me!
