    Right back at the start of the Asian horror forum, I suggested that after a while there'd be a Top 10 thread for the Asian Horror genre. Since those early days, the forum's been extended to "other pleasures" but, due to the popularity of the horror genre, there have been very few non-horror threads.

    If you post your 10 favourite Asian films (or Top 5), I'll collate the votes and come up with a definitive Top 10 for the board members in, say, a month's time. It would be great to keep the films purely horror (if you're really passionate about a John Woo film, I may start a Top 10 Asian non-horror film list later).

    All films score 1 point so order isn't important.

    To start the ball rolling, my Top 10 (at this moment in time) is as follows:

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man
    Evil Dead Trap
    Audition
    Ichi The Killer
    Battle Royale
    Tell Me Something
    Ring
    Uzumaki
    Run And Kill
    The Eye


    Let the voting begin!:D

    I need to see more good asian horror movies before I can add any more. I'm sure Battle Royale, Uzumaki, Kairo and some others are all classic but I haven't seen them yet.

    Keepin' the dogs away...
    1. Eko Eko Azarak 1
    2. The Untold Story
    3. Battle Royale
    4. Suicide Circle
    5. Bio Zombie
    6. Evil Dead Trap
    7. Flowers of Flesh & Blood
    8. Mr. Vampire
    9. Ebola Syndrome
    10. Devil Fetus

    Not all of them are particulary outstanding or anything, but those are the better... Eko Eko Azarak 1 is the best asian horror film I've ever seen. I'm glad to see that Wild Zero has been largely ignored.

    Ahh! I can't believe I left out Ebola Syndrome on my list. Add another vote for Ebola. I only listed 9 movies anyways. ;) Good choices McChrist. There are a couple on there I haven't seen so I MUST check them out. When this list is finally compiled I'll probably go on an asian DVD shopping spree. :D

    Although the below films are great, I don't know if I would consider them horror. Some are social commentaries while the others are your typical asian rape flick. Which may very well be horror for those made of the rib.

    Battle Royale
    Suicide Circle
    Ichi
    Dead or Alive
    Brother of Darkness
    Daughter of Darkness
    Fudoh

    I'm not a woman but enough repulsive things happen in Daughter of Darkness that I go on and consider it horror. I almost consider Visitor Q a horror movie. It sure does feel like one.

    I thought Visitor Q was just everyday life here in Japan!

    :lol: My uncle lived in Japan for 15 years and still goes to and from Japan pretty often. He talks like Japan is the most perfect place in the world. Maybe I should show him Visitor Q. :evil:
