Halloween season is on. A rare blue moon is set to make Halloween spookier this year but watching some horror flicks might just be the best way to make your even creepier. Here in Asia, we have some of the scariest movies some even spinning Hollywood remakes.
To accompany you this Halloween, we're listing the scariest Asian horror films to watch. Prepare the popcorn and maybe even blankets––just for something to hide behind on when things get too scary.
1. Ringu (Ring), Japan
The original, Japanese version of Ringu—or Ring—is sheer, raw horror and if you were a child of the early 2000's, it probably continues to haunt you until this day.
Adapted from a novel based on a Japanese legend known as Banchō Sarayashiki, The Ring is the story of a cursed videotape that kills anyone who watches it exactly one week after viewing. The film follows reporter Reiko Asakawa as she investigates these terrifying and mysterious deaths, while trying to save her loved ones from its fatal curse.
