I'm not well versed in scary movies to make the call but I would say that Japan is very near number 1 if not actually number 1. Originators of the grudge and the ring/ ringu, and probably more american redo's/knock offs, I think they really know what it takes to scare someone (cinematically) at least.

I saw a movie similar to firestarter that was pretty good and also a movie called premonition. Korea's pretty good as well.... hmmm I want to hear everyone else's opinions

I'd say Thailand.

Most successful commercial Thai horror films:

Shutter - probably the first Thai horror film that made people sit up and take notice of Thailand's horror film industry

The Voice - although flawed, it contains some good 'Holy feck!' moments

The Eye - UK/HK-produced film - was made by director Pang brothers with some scenes filmed in Thailand.

Minor Thai successes:

Alone - a siamese twin goes wrong
The Unborn AKA The Mother -- a still from this film was circulated on the internet as a "real" ghost photograph -- it has a "female ghost" lying beneath a hospital bed that has a sleeping person.
Colic (awesome posters, though)
Art of The Devil
Art of The Devil 2
Ghost of Mae Nak -- damn, must remember to upload this some day
Bangkok Haunted (anthology) -- ditto
The Hotel? (I thought it was called Heirloom, but it's the wrong film >_< )

There are more but these are what I can remember so far.

Dorm is probably my favourite Thai non-horror supernatural film.
