Great Korean Horror Movies

Everyone is surprised that another South Korean series has gone to number one on Netflix. The young adult-based zombie series, All of Us Are Dead is huge. Not only is it number one, but it is also headed toward becoming the most-watched original Netflix series ever. The Squid Game previous broke records on Netflix earlier. I don’t see why everyone is on a Korean craze. I have been suggesting Korean films forever. Finally, they are getting the recognition they so rightfully deserve. I hope with these successes, they will translate or sub more films. 

That is the reason for this list. Since it is trending, here are some South Korean horror films you might like (No I will not include Train To Busan). Naturally, these are in no order other than when my little brain remembers them. Hopefully, you will see a film that catches your interest.

 I Saw The Devil 2010

I Saw The Devil is one of the most brutal movies of vengeance out there, so prepare yourself emotionally before you watch. The movie is about a secret service agent whose fiancée is murdered and dismembered by a serial killer, and his decision to take his revenge through the relentless pursuit and torture of the killer.

Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum 2018

This found-footage horror follows the crew of a horror web series as they travel to an abandoned asylum for a live broadcast. If you're a fan of Paranormal Activity, you'll love it. Because Asian films can tell a ghost story.

Thirst 2009

One of the sexiest horror movies of all time. Thirst follows a priest who is brought back to life as a vampire.

 The Wailing 2016

Residents of a South Korean mountain village get hit with a deadly and mysterious disease, and it's up to a local policeman to get to the bottom of it with the help of a powerful shaman. 

The storyline is full of Korean culture, terror, and some comedy relief.

Death Bell 2008

High-achieving students disappear at random and die in grisly ways. Is it a killer, or something supernatural?

 The Red Shoes 2005

Sun-Jae discovers a pair of gorgeous red high heels on the subway, she takes them with herself back home, only to find out that they have a very dark secret.

Based on the fairy tale from Hans Christian Andersen, it's a dark and twisted modern story about vanity and beauty with a paranormal twist.
