This week’s Midweek Movie Mouth-off topic comes courtesy of my friend Sean (hi Sean!) who is a serious horror movie aficionado. He’s seen horror movies that I haven’t even heard of. So, in an attempt to educate myself, I asked for his advice on which foreign horror movies I should watch.
His recommendation: Ring. You’ve probably seen the western adaptation, The Ring, but the original is still streets ahead of the American version. It’s unpredictable, different, and much scarier. I thought The Ring was plenty scary enough, but apparently it could have been worse (better?).
If you’re looking for a more ‘out-there’ foreign horror, you could also go for A Tale of Two Sisters. It won a ton of awards and was the first Korean horror film to be screened in American theatres. Also just looking at the poster freaked me out, so it must be good.
So if you have a little-known gem of a foreign horror movie that you like to break out on Halloween, let me know which one it is and what it’s about, so that I can recommend some movies to Sean for a change!
