Posted by

Hello Everyone, When it comes to movies, the Japanese film
industry is one of the most aesthetically evolved. That is not very surprising since we are talking
about the land that gave us Akiro Kurosawa. So Today We are going to tell you about 20
Japanese Horror Movies That You Shouldn’t Watch Alone Here is a list of some of the horror movies
you must not miss. Number 1: Noroi. Long and complex, Noroi has been made in the
documentary-found-footage style. Movie focuses on a paranormal expert who disappears
during the making of a disturbing documentary, The Curse. Number 2: Ju On. This movie is mostly popular as The Grudge. It is perhaps one of the most widely-watched
and well-received horror movies ever. And that kid ghost! Dear God! Number 3: Ringu. This terrifying movie is also extremely popular. Much like Ju On, Ringu keeps the audience
nicely petrified to look away from the screen. Sadako emerging from the well and then from
the television set will forever be seared into our brains. Number 4: Suicide Club. Cases of mass suicide grips the nation and
the police are trying to find the cause. This morbid movie makes a different kind of
sense when you come to know that 33,000 teenagers committed suicide the year before the film
as made. Number 5: Dark Water. An eerie apartment with a bad leak on the
ceiling does not seem like the most terrifying plot. But how the movie unfolds is a masterclass
on how to make a horror film terrifying and tragic. Number 6: Onibaba. The movie is about survival, which is the
essence of every horror movie. Set in 14th century with a backdrop of feudal
wars, Onibaba features two women and a demonic mask. Exceptionally entertaining with a fistful
of psychological horror. Number 7: Rinne. Rinne or Reincarnation has all the ingredients
for a great horror movie. With multiple murders decade ago, killer committing
suicide, questionable movie being made recreating all the events, shock moments and the nefarious
venue, Rinne is an absolute winner! Number 8: Kairo. People are committing suicide and the world
is depopulating. A couple of survivors must fight against all
odds, along with their will to survive in a post apocalyptic world infested with ghosts. Number 9: Audition. A widower teams up with a director to find
himself a life-partner. They ‘audition’ women to be the wife. Then they find Asami. She is a nutcase to say the least and lives
in an empty apartment with a frightening-looking sack. If this doesn’t make you curious, we don’t
know what will. Number 10: Tales Of Terror From Tokyo And
All Over Japan. The name of the movie is self-explanatory
– it is an anthology of horror tales, unequal in their horror quotient.It compiled eight
stories by seven directors: “Yakei no hôkokusho” (“The Night Watchman”), “Zan’en” (“Wisps of
Smoke”), “Tebukuro” (“Gloves”), “Omoi~tsu!” (“The Weight”), “Sugatami” (“Full-Length Mirror”),
“Shisen” (“Line of Sight”), “Yakusoku” (“The Promise”) and “Hisao”. Number 11: Teke Teke. The film focuses on a legless woman who haunts
the railway station. If anyone sees her, they die within three
days. The garden-variety horror movie but equally
frightening. Number 12: Kuime. Kuime or Over Your Dead Body focuses on a
couple, both of whom are part of a play based on the popular Yotsuya Kaidan. Things get increasingly convoluted and gory
as Kosuke starts cheating on Miyuki offstage. Number 13: Yotsuya Kaidan. One of the film adaptations of what is probably
the most popular ghost story. Ghost of murdered wife haunts adulterer husband
and the result is stupefying. Arguably the most famous Japanese ghost story
of all time, it has been adapted for film over 30 times, and continues to be an influence
on Japanese horror today. Number 14: P.O.V: Norowareta Firumu. Ghost video rolls. Origin of the ghost video is traced to a high
school. Investigations into supernatural occurrences
in the high school ensue. Haunted. High. School. Number 15: Kwaidan. Another anthology of horror flicks that has
been critically acclaimed and bagged an Academy Award nomination. It probably is the only one of its kind. The film consists of four separate and unrelated
stories. Kwaidan is an archaic transliteration of Kaidan,
meaning ‘ghost story’. Number 16: Carved: The Slit-Mouthed Woman. This movie has a woman with a slit mouth. I repeat, a slit mouth. And she is wandering about with a gigantic
pair of scissors cutting people and all. It is the kind of movie that scares you even
before the opening credit rolls. Full points for the gore. Number 17: Jigoku. An extremely gory film that has nothing to
do with realism. Deaths and misery all around with an unusual
trip to hell. Yes. Jigoku is notable for separating itself from
other Japanese horror films of the era such as Kwaidan or Onibaba due to its graphic imagery
of torment in Hell. Number 18: The Complex. The Complex focuses on a haunted complex where
mysterious deaths happen. There is an added bonus of scratching noises
from the apartment below in the middle of the night. Number 19: Suicide Manual. Two cameramen investigate the case of a group
suicide where four people kill themselves. The run into a girl who was a part of the
pact but backed out in fear and twists and turns ensue. Number 20: Tomie. The first installation of this series is about
a troubled woman trying to recover her memories. The only thing she remembers is a name – Tomie. So Thank you Guys For Watching This Video. If you loved this video then please like,
