I’ve seen Wishing Stairs, it's the 3rd ｆilm of the Whispering Corridors series. ^^ I'll probably try to watch A Tale of Two Sisters again, I just have crappy internet at the moment, so it might take a while to get around to it.IncantatioN said:Add Wishing Stairs to that list, just about decent. A Tale Of Two Sisters I thought was darn good - gripping, horrific, keeps you emotionally invested till the end and throws a curve-ball at you. If anything I think the ending spelt out what exactly happened. I wish they didn't do that and instead dropped hints for us here or there.
Oddly enough, the Red Shoes was on TV tonight in my country. Great to see it again.Thanks for the recommendations, keep em coming! I checked out The Red Shoes last night and it was surprisingly good/ enjoyable. The whole mother-daughter relationship and their scenes together in the end were horrific, especially the end. I liked the leading the audience on or ambiguity about closure that it leaves the viewer with.
Oh, the classic Kwaidan. That was a beautiful film. This other one, Kaidan, was made in 2007. It's got a different story.Kaidan's a classic, it's pretty formidable in giving out genuine scares even today. Didn't know Dark Water was based on a book and wait, different ending (?) - color me interested. I love the fee and tone of the movie a lot, the same with Ringu or Ju-On. It's that feeling of dread, amplified by watching it in the dark on a big screen : p. Try Long Dream if you liked Uzumaki, not as scary but fun. Let me know what you think of Kiyoshi's other movies.
I'm a sucker for Horror and get bloody scared. But it's fun for me when I overcome that.
Just remembered a couple of other J-horrors - Forbidden Siren and Shikoku. The former is set on an island where a creepy siren warns residents when not to go out, and the latter about a girl who goes back to her rural birthplace after learning that her childhood friend died. There's also Kakashi, which is based on another Junji Ito manga. There's another film about a haunted apartment that keeps everyone in the complex stuck living there until someone new moves in, but I can't remember what it was called.
Another K-horror is Roommates/D-Day - Set in a girls' academy for troubled teens. That is very haunted.
It's been a while since I read the short story Floating Water, but basically
in the end the mother figures out the truth about the water tank, is freaked out, decides to leave and notifies the authorities. In the beginning of the story, she's set up as being extremely repulsed by uncleanliness, which serves to exacerbate her horror over what's in the water she and her daughter have been drinking. In short, the movie ending is way more of a downer than the book.
