"All of the characters in my films, they share one commonality. It doesn’t matter whether they are good or bad, it doesn’t matter whether they are smart or stupid, these characters all take responsibility for their own behavior. I’m much the same. Depending on what project I’m working on, for each film, I would build scenes that are most appropriate for that film, and that’s how I would make films. Whatever reputation ensues, I take full responsibility. The funny thing is, people who have actually seen my films, they imagine they saw something that in fact wasn’t presented on screen. "

- Park Chan-Wook


A Tale Of Two Sisters: Deleted Ending

After Eun-ju sees Su-yeon’s ghost, this scene follows. This was going to be the ending. It was in the script. Su-yeon’s ghost appears in front of Eun-ju because she also did nothing to save Su-yeon from the accident. Su-mi senses this and commits suicide. The film was suppose to end with Su-mi’s death. It is a sad ending, but too typical. So we deleted it. - Kim Ji Woon

What's the difference between mainland China and Hong Kong? Lately I'm starting to learn that there is a difference but I'm still not entirely sure what it is. Like I was reading something and the guys said "You're from China?" "I'm from Hong Kong." "Isn't that in China?" Why is it set apart?

Can I just mention how much I love this blog?! I love asian horror films and whenever I need a new movie to watch my friend and I always look through your blog to see what you recommend :) Recently I've been into Chinese Horror Films (because apparently China has regulations on scary movies) and my little sister just bought me Rigor Mortis which she surprisingly found at Wal-Mart. Anyway I just wanted to stop by and say I'm a huge fan of your blog :)

Oh, ok so like Hong Kong-China, not like, China as a mainland, ok! lol i’ve actually never seen a mainland movie even though i’ve had like Aftershock and The Matrimony on my watchlist forever now lol 

THIS IS ALSO WHY YOU NEVER SEE ME TAG ANYTHING “CHINA” Cause most movies i’ve seen are Hong Kong.

i'm the anon who asked for some slasher, it would be great if you know within asian horror but if you don't mind maybe i may ask in general too? thanks!

I’m actually not well rehearsed in slasher since it’s not my favorite sub-genre in horror, but here are a few I have seen and liked:

  • To Sir With Love
  • Meat Grinder
  • Macabre
  • Dream Home
  • Evil Dead Trap
  • Carved: A Slit Mouthed 
  • Lesson Of The Evil
  • Tokyo Gore Police(maybe?)

For horror overall

  • Scream series
  • High Tension
  • Candyman
  • Deep Red
  • Wolf Creek
  • Frontier(s)

At this point in time that’s all I can think of since i’m super hungry. 

I also don’t want to mix ghosts or supernatural things into slasher, so anything like that has been left off.

Hey :) First of all, I love your blog! Okay, this might be a weird question but do you know some Asian Horror Movies that take place in a school? I recently watched Death Bell 1+2 and I really enjoyed the school atmosphere so I wondered if you know any other movies that take place in a school? I hope you're having a nice day :)

This is actually a pretty common question! So don’t feel too weird about it <3

Here are a few that I can think of atm:

  • Whispering Corridors 1-5
  • POV: A Cursed Film
  • X Game
  • One Missed Call 3
  • Black Rat
  • Roommates(a.k.a D-Day)
  • Confessions
  • I’m Sorry(a.k.a. Ring Of Curse)
  • Goth
  • Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
  • Another
  • Kotsutsubo
  • Lesson Of The Evil

There are probably A LOT more that I can’t think of right now, so feel free to add to this list, guys :)
