Apartment 1303 (1303 goshitsu) - Some rentals are too good to be true

When the made-up term "hair horror" is thrown at movie fanatics, brain scientists maybe estimate that 85% will immediately visualise the stereotypical Asian ghost, the wicked 10% visualise the ungroomed bush popular in 70s exploitation while 5% insist that horror is all around us and we should combat this by smoking pot at music festivals (statisti...

Carved - Lock up your Daughters

J-Horror movies are not renowned for being sick and disturbing and usually rely on shocks, scares and an abundance of creepiness, Carved - The Slit Mouthed Woman (Kuchisake-onna) breaks this mould and manages to combine supernatural Japanese mythology with relentless depiction of and a flippant attitude towards kidnapping, beating the crap out of, ...

Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute)

A Japanese movie entitled Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute) will instantly conjure up uninspiring pictures of standard supernatural hair-ghosts creeping out whiney Asian girls in an attempt to exploit the trend of J-Horror breaking into the Western world. This could not be further from the truth. The hairy (and often wet) ghost is an integral part o... Click to read more "Exte - Hair Extensions (Ekusute)"

Hansel and Gretel (Henjel gwa Geuretel)

Korean director Pil-Sung Yim's Hansel and Gretel (Henjel gwa Geuretel) is an incongruent mixture of horror and fantasy with dramatic fluctuations between the two genres. The relationship between this 2007 story and the Grimm 1812 story of the same name is very loose and it is more appropriate to say that the fairy tale motivated and inspired the ch...

Mother of Tears - If she lives, we all die.

The third and final part of Dario Argento's Three Mothers Trilogy is Mother of Tears (La Terza madre). 27 years after Inferno, the final part of the trilogy that began with Suspiria ends pretty much how it began. I must admit that I was expecting to be disappointed with this movie and envisioned it to be bastardised by Hollywood influences but with... Click to read more "Mother of Tears (La terza madre)"
