31 Days of Halloween: 6 Japanese Horror Flicks

Hello Friends and welcome to my 31 Days of Halloween day 10. Today I’m listing my top Japanese Horror Flicks.

It’s interesting that most horror movies that you see today are based on Japanese culture, horror, and short stories. Three of the 6 on my list have been remade in America, but personally their Japanese predecessors are much scarier.

From grudges to violet deaths, or revenge if you’ve seen it in America it  first came to fruition in Japan.

So here is my list of my top Japanese Horror Flicks.

Final Thoughts

I’ve seen every movie on this short list, and I listed the ranking on IMBD. Not averaging above a 7, these movies are high on the scare meter.  Even writing this post and gathering the information gave me a chill.  So if you’re a serious horror fan, check out my list … if you dare.

What are some of the movies your binging for Halloween?  Feel free to share them in the comments.
