Top 10 J-Horror films

     I am a big fan of a horror films or suspense. Whenever there is a new suspense/horror movie I will not missed the oppurtunity to watch it. When I find it a good one, The film I saw will be in my list to collect. No matter how many times you saw the film, it still scares you and  the suprised element is still there that will hold your breath and scream like a little schools girls or sometimes you are really affected in the film to the point that you are shouting to the character to run, or learn to defend. Japanese horror is no exception to that... they are good in that field.
     If you are a horror fanatic and love to be scared, here is the my personal favorite list of Japanese Horror film that made me paranoid while watching them alone and scared the hell out of me. A must have J-Horror to collect. If you are going to check this film alone, I'll bet you will turn the lights on and some of them will make your heart pound fast....

10. Kairo/ Pulse
This is one of well known film , and also have a hollywood version.
              Plot: Japanese university students investigate a series of suicides linked to an Internet ...

9. Hausu
     The classic film brought a new level of  horror from 1977.  Hausu's plot line is simple. It involves a daughter who want to patch up the lost time from her father when her mother passed away. But to here dismay her father brought a news of planning to remarry, She feel betrayed. Oshare decides she will be going to her aunt's house in the country instead of to have time with the annoying Ryuko the girlfriend of her father. And from there the girls adventure begins... I'm not going to spoil the story....  .

     Also known as One Missed Call. In Japan, you will recieved a call from your future  self and gives you information how you will die... the a macabre feelings of Haunted ringtone!

7. Ichi
     Dont let this film missed your collection. If you are into some blood, gore, uber violent film and a psychopathic killer with a  dark childhood secret. and did I say funny guy ? but scary...... just by looking at the photo .. I want to squeeze his eyes....

6.Honogurai Mizu No Soko Kara
     Also know as Dark Water.. I know everyone know this film. Okay forget the shitty hollywod remake.. Just go with the Jhorror original. For you to feel the eerie suspense of Honogurai Mizu No Soko Kara.

5. Odishon/Audition
      A film that shows "First impressions is definitely wrong..." Looks can be decieving.... I really love this film.. Just see for yourself ....

4. Ringu
  Need more word? Guess not! Since I know most of you saw this film... and it is a sin if I will not include this on my list.. a cursed film with a very strange girl name Sadako.. and you only have 7 days to survive.

3. Rampo Noir
     Only few people know that this film exist in 2005. Rampo Noir is a collection of 4 short films by Edogawa Rampo. The whole compilation is artistically grotesque, dark, violent, gross, and disturbing yet it is still stylishly poetic. All four segments will get different reactions depending on the viewer. My favorite episode is the Caterpillar!

2. Marebito
     A big salute to director Takashi Shimuzu! Not going to spoil a lot, since I know most of you didn't know this film.
The plot: A freelancer cameraman Takuyoshi Masuoka is obsessed investigating the fear sensation near death. Click here for the spoiler
1.Ju On
   Another famous J-Horror. Every horror fanatic saw this film and knows the plot, mysteries of Kayako. I guess most of us saw, both of the version the original and the hollywood remake. If you still dont have the Jhorror better grab a copy
Plot: Rika Nishina is assigned to visit a family, she is cursed and chased by two revengeful fiends: Kayako, a woman brutally murdered by her husband and her son Toshio.
