Asian Horror isn’t a genre or sub-genre, but just horror from Asia. The films I collect here will include stylized Japanese Kaidan, the J-horror (and K-horror) that replaced it, with its long haired ghosts, contortionists, and cursed electronics, Hong Kong action-horror, and every other type of Asian horror film.
