Have you ever watched an Asian horror hoping it to be scary, then turned out to be a total flop?? I have, and these are mine to share...

Korean



The Evil Twin: I actually thought it dragged on and was a bit on the boring side, and I didn't find it scary. I found out the twist before it was foretold at the end, so that was the only excited thing, that I got it right. Rather than that, it wasn't what I had expected.

Japanese



Carved: I was freaked out when I saw the cover, and the storyline seemed interesting, but it turned out to be a total disappointment for me. How do you expect a gorgeous lady(honestly I thought she was more pretty than scary) in heels running after it's victims scary?? Especially the running part, in any horror its the fact that no matter how fast the victims run the chaser is suppose to be slow that's what gives the suspense to the audience. And the ending with the supposely scary lady kicking it's victims, I thought it was just hilarious!!..I couldn't stop making fun of her, and lastly, I got a little confuse with the storyline. I know I read that the movie was a Japanese urban legend or something, so maybe it's because I didn't know all of the story of the legend, that it made it bit confusing, cause I thought it left a lot of loopholes that made you think like...what the? that doesn't make sense? But maybe someone who knows more could explain to me.

Singapore?/Phillipine?(not sure?)



The Maid: I don't know but I didn't find this one scary either. My friend recommended it to me saying it was super scary and she was all freaked out and asked me to watch it with her, but sorry to burst her bubbles, it wasn't scary, at least for me, and the story line was just so so...and I did figure out part of what the twist was, like how the whole family was actually on the crazy side, and they were going to do something with the main lead. But rather than that, not one that I enjoyed either.

Now you guys could share yours!!

there's this vampire/zombie movie (pretty sure it was chinese)
the ppl die...
then they are cursed...
then their dead bodies hop around and they are zombies...
then they turn into vampires.
and the vampires can't see you if you're wet
and there's this chick who is immortal b/c she ate a merman

school day of the dead. It has a happy ending goddammit!
And I figured out the scheme in the middle of the movie, so maybe that was it. But it was TOTALLY non-scary. except one scene or so.

P.S
To teddygirlrox: How do you find The Grudge non-scary? O.o It freaks me out, the best (among others) horror movie ever!

some filipino horror flicks are funny even though they're not meant to be that way

Know any "good" asian horros? point me to the right direction please.

Most horrors I've seen don't scare me, "Art of the Devil" II and III freaked me out, but didn't scare me.
