Fun East Asian Horror Films for Halloween

Sometimes I just float where ever the wind takes me. I’m like a pollen just drifting in autumn’s air. Okay that is not scientifically correct where I am from, but it doesn’t matter. In my universe nothing makes sense.

I have been spending a lot of time streaming on Amazon Prime Video. That’s where I watch all my martial art films. I can’t get enough of them. They are that addictive and fun to watch. You spend enough time on the site, you’d eventually find some good horror films and that is what happened to me. In fact, I haven’t had nightmares for a long time until I watched the following films.

Kidan: Piece of Darkness

There are 10 short stories in this anthology. A few of them spooked me out that I started dreaming that my place is haunted. I woke up to the sound of a single note being played on the piano. I don’t own a piano. I guess the film was so scary I had bad dreams. Maybe you should skip this one. Nonetheless it kept my eyes wide open–just like the cover. It’s that suspenseful.

Next one….

Hitokowa: The Killing Hour

This one is not as scary as the first film mentioned, but visually appealing to the eyes. I am not going to lie, I like to stare at pretty girls, especially when they are well dressed because it’s like watching a fashion catalogue for clothes. It gives me inspiration to take care of myself. Dressing up can be fun sometimes. But the only problem with looking nice is that you attract all sorts of creeps, especially if you are walking in the dark. The whole time watching this film, I’m thinking not so bright girl. It might be wise to change into sweatpants and sneakers so you can outrun your predator. You never know!!! Overall, the film is more comically scary than bone chilling if that makes sense. Ideally, I think the film is intended for female audiences. I had a great laugh. I laughed so loud my neighbors probably thought I am crazy.

Final one…

The Mimic

This film is mysterious enough to keep me on my toes, and the sentimental mother and daughter scenes made me well up with tears (let’s just say my relationship with my mom is strong), but the way how the story is being told is not so good. It felt too Hollywood for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great Korean horror films, but this one just didn’t make the cut.

I listed 3 films rating from 1 to 3. The first film mentioned is the best on this list.

Okay, I hope you enjoy my small list of reccomendations and hopefully it makes your film selection easier as there are so many films out there to choose from. Until next time, bye bye.
