Each day, we’ll post our top picks from one specific group—say, vampire movies or slasher flicks—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re ready to talk about those movies that hit a little too close to home.

5 Horror Films Too Disturbing To Watch Again

22 October 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

** Spoilers ahead **

I am not a horror film fan. I appreciate the genre but considering that my over-amped imagination will turn a sight of a little girl with long hair in ghostly white attire into a full epileptic seizure within me, I try to stay as far away from scary films as much as possible. But trying to be a well-verse film critic requires me to explore uncharted territories especially that of the horror realm and thoroughly challenge my threshold. Granted I haven’t seen films like the Japanese Ringu, A Serbian Film, It or even Cannibal Holocaust, but I know scary when I see it. Ahem, The Chainsaw Massacre and The Orphanage. But I can confidently say that these five films that I am about to list is still a terrifying film experience for the majority of viewers and one that cornered me to confront my fear resulting in »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 10-1

9 August 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are at what is a surprisingly modern list. At the beginning of this, I didn’t expect to see so much cultural impact coming from films so recently made, but that’s the way it goes. The films that define the horror genre aren’t necessarily the scariest or the most expensive or even the best. The films that define the genre point to a movement – movies that changed the game and influenced all the films after it. Movies that transcend the horror genre. Movies that broke the mold and changed the way horror can be created.

10. El laberinto del fauno (2006)

English Language Title: Pan’s Labyrinth

Directed by: Gullermo del Toro

It’s more a dark fantasy film than a horror film, but it would be tough to make a list of 50 of those. Plus, it has enough graphic, nightmarish images to push it over the threshold. »

Japanese horror Audition to get English-language remake

29 June 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Japanese horror Audition will receive an English-language remake.

Mario Kassar, who previously executive produced Terminator and Basic Instinct, is involved in the American project based on the 1999 film, reports Deadline.

Based on Ryu Murakami's novel of the same name, Audition follows a widower named Shigeharu Aoyama who puts out a fake casting call for a new wife.

Shigeharu is enchanted by one of the auditioning girls, who isn't what she appears to be.

The remake will be directed by Australian director Richard Gray, who previously worked on Mine Games, and is said to follow the novel but will take place in an American setting.

The original Audition, which starred Ryo Ishibashi and Eihi Shiina and was directed by Takashi Miike, is considered a cult classic.

'Terminator' Producer Plans 'Audition' Remake

27 June 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mario Kassar, who has served as a producer on blockbusters such as First Blood, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Basic Instinct, is mounting a remake of Takashi Miike's cult classic Audition.

The original film, which was adapted from Ry&#251 Murakami's 1997 novel, centered on a lonely widower (Ryo Ishibashi) who puts out a fake casting call to help find a new girlfriend. When he finds the one girl he likes, Asami Yamasaki (Eihi Shiina), his quest to find the new love of his life turns into a nightmare beyond comprehension.

The story is said to be quite similar to the original book and movie, only with an American setting. The plot centers on a widowed man named Sam Davis, who is convinced by his filmmaker friend to hold a casting call for a fake movie. The girl he falls for is a ballerina named Evie Lawrence.

Richard Gray is directing from his own adapted screenplay, »
