The Japanese really love their horror. And they love all different sorts of horror. From beautiful, creepy ghost stories like Kwaidan to ultra realistic torture porn like Grotesque and everything in between. There are some ultra perverted Japanese movies out there that mix explicit sex with gruesome violence, they are classics of a kind but they don’t belong on the list here. Instead, I am concentrating on la creme de la creme of J Horror.
In the list, you will see the true brilliance of J Horror from 1960 to the present day. Italy had a similar talent for producing horror, but unfortunately, that seems to have dwindled. J Horror is strong and vibrant and endlessly inventive. I have picked what I think is a good representation of the heights of Japanese horror cinema, but ultimately people’s tastes are different so please add your favourites below.
