If they were scary, we wouldn't watch anime.

Yes. This. 100% true.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt here and assume you're not actually talking about the Asian race having the innate ability to frighten others with great or superior skill.

That's a subjective question but overall their horror movies would naturally be different from ours. Different societal and cultural influences allow for different areas of inspiration as well as mere subconscious influence. Not only that but we must also consider that the minds behind the film have each walked a different road of life, have been exposed to experiences that others among them haven't, and that they all have a variety of perspectives that are both shared and opposed by their colleagues' own way of thought -- something that applies not just to people in the region of Asia or those behind a horror movie created in the continent but also every single human being.

So depending on the individual, I think it's perfectly plausible for them to be more frightened by a movie created in countries such as Korea or Japan than that of movies created in other areas of the world.

Doesn't sound too hard.

You mean the psychological aspect they project in their movies. The movies are not scary. They're disturbing. They have their own views on what's what. It's like, "this scene can be presented in a different way that if it's done correct it's disturbing."

They can scare people without the actual Hollywood blockbuster sfx beating on your eardrums and corn syrup splashing on the digital screen. For example, story telling.

No. They are not the scariest people.

I dont think its Asian people that are scarier, but in regards to their horror films, they tend not to have the production value of western movies ( "newer" ones anyway, and not that it's a bad thing) and I think this inherently gives them a more nuanced, dark, and creepy feel.

Ive watched my fair share of all kinds of foreign films on Netfllix, and I tend to like them better, usually, though not restricted to just the horror genre. Their a bit more cerebral in my opinion, or generally more engaging.

Maybe it's just cause so many scary American films are usually just built up jumpscares and a lot of the scary Asian films that are good enough to get international interest have a much better atmosphere and psychological effect.
