Alucarda - They gave their souls to Hell... but the Devil wanted MORE!

Convents: they're all well and good, but a functional convent rarely makes for an entertaining movie. Luckily for us, we have an entire genre based on what happens when good nuns - or their young charges - go bad, and demented Mexican movie Alucarda (Sisters of Satan) must rank amongst the most grisly, camp and compelling takes on the theme.

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, ...

The Eye 2 (Gin Gwai 2) - Evil always seeks its second chance.

The Eye 2 is a sequel in name only. It is still directed by The Pang Brothers and still about someone afflicted with the uncanny ability to see the spirits of the dead, but that is where the similarities end.
