People like watching horror / gruesome movies a lot nowadays. When I meant horror movies, it does not just refer to those that contain ghosts, for those that are under gory, thriller I also categorize them under movies.
Personally, I like knowing about horror movies / stories, I never watch them though, I think watching is too much for me, if there is one scene that I saw from a movie which has this close up view of a ghost or any gruesome scene that I saw, I think I will keep remembering it for the next 10 years and for the next 1 month from then on, I will have this scene keep flashing in up in my brain when I’m alone.
Due to me being quite free again during work this few days (Then again, I always managed to find free time for myself even when I’m very busy), I went up to read on horror movies again in Wikipedia. Sadly Wikipedia only have the information of movies that comes mainly from the US, or those that are more well known internationally, meaning, there isn’t a lot of movies that I can read up on. It would be better if there is someone that come up with a horror movie article in Wikipedia which also contains the horror movies from Thailand, Japan and Korea. I think horror movies from these 3 countries really owns haha.
Thailand horror movies, I’ve only saw a few before and it’s very very few. Theirs mostly involves black magic, voo doos and curses, so is it very scary? I can’t really tell either. I guess is a little on the gruesome part and some scary scenes. Wait, I think Thailand horror movies are more on the story part (Shutter is also from there right?), so normally there will be a reason for any strange occurrence in the show.
Korea horror movies are very very very creepy. You normally see green scenes everywhere and long haired girls basically keeps appearing out of nowhere.. (tsk, when I’m writing this now, suddenly like got a lot of sounds coming from my environment and people keep walking around, gives me a fright man). Hm, basically I think Korean movies also normally involves gruesome scenes, not gruesome in the sense that you see human parts everywhere, but is gory in the sense you will see blood around. So basically Korean horror movies are more on the scary part, have story and a bit gory.
Japan movies, I think the most famous horror movies series from Japan is The Grudge? I read up on the whole series of that, if I were to deduce the Japan horror movies from that alone, maybe it’s not enough, but not like I know of any Japan horror movies… Okay, generally for Japan horror movies / dramas, it’s a lot of long rebonded hair girls moving around in the scene. Their hairs will normally cover their whole faces and they always float around behind the character when they’re not seeing. It’s quite similar to Korean movies style really, but Japan horror movies are horrifying in the sense that the camera would film the ghost for a very long time as they are crawling / floating / whatever. Their movies have story lines, but it’s quite confusing at the front parts. I remembered watching The Ring and not quite understand why a fly appeared on the tv screen and in the end it’s a real fly and I still don’t get what’s scary about that. Eh, basically Japan horror movies contained a lot of gory and long haired girls around. At least for The Grudge series, people keep dying for no reason(they say is because of the grudge they had when they die, but why kill innocent people? ) then you’ll see human parts coming out from random parts? Hm, but I guess the tension level for Japan horror movies are very high for most of the time.
Then it comes to US movies which I read the most articles on. Of all the countries’ horror movies, I watched the least of US horror movies, I don’t think I even watched any of it. Well.. Channel 5 don’t really play horror movies and I would never ever go to the cinemas to watch a horror movie (why? Because it’s like 100 times the normal screen, 100x the long haired girls, 100x the tension and 1000x the sound, sound effect is really scary). US ghost movies are not that scary I think, they’re not the kind that really shows long haired girls or ghosts around in the movie, not that they don’t but it’s seldom. This is weird, my brain comes to a blank when I think about US horror movies. Eh, anyway I think US horror movies are more on the gory side. As in, it’s really gory movies. They have a lot of that, and definitely if gruesome wise, I think they’re one of the most gruesome ones there are out there. Basically, they have a lot of ways of killing people and definitely not in the easiest way out possible. At least for other countries’ horror movies, the ghosts kill you is once and for all, and it doesn’t take too long. US movies however, is a torture + slow death. US produce more gory movies than horror movies. Or perhaps their horror movies only consisted of gore actually…
Anyways, if you’re a real sadist, you can watch the Saw series, Final Destination series, I think ultimate is the Hostel movies.
I should really just stick to watching animations for the rest of my life. I would die in a cinema if I were to watch gory / horror movies.
Ayz, I should really do an analysis on pawn or I Am The Notorious Evil Hamster series instead. Definitely I would do a better job than analyzing horror movies.
