The Terrifying World of Japanese Horror Movies

In general, I don’t “do” horror movies. They freak me out, which I guess is the point of the movie but still. Japanese people seem to love horror movies, which is strange to me because Japanese horror movies are really really scary. After seeing both Ju-on and the American remake, The Grudge, I can safely say I’m ready to swear off Japanese horror flicks for the next year.
If you’re eager to dive into J-horror, though, check out any of these 5 Japanese horror movies.
Japanese horror movies have beautifully crafted stories and are not so much the gore fest that many American horror movies are but something about those horror stories just leaves a ball of uneasiness in my stomach for weeks after the movie.
Do you watch Japanese horror movies?
