So Would You like to Know a Little Bit About Foreign Horror Films?

  • Mar 29, 2010

Let's cut to the chase; Mainstream Hollywood horror films have taken a nose-dive since 2000. There are only a few that stands out and a lot just "ok". Hollywood horror relies on special eye candy effects, beautiful people and remake gimmicks to pull it through a mediocre plot that lack suspense and chilling drama. Where are the days of JAWS and the Original Omen? Well, they are gone. I am not a hardcore horror fan but I do love me some horror films. So I went to partake Foreign horror movies--French, Spain and even the U.K. and Canada...

Nice selection, but where are the classic foreign horror films like "Nosferatu", "Der Golem", "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Vampyr", and "J'accuse!"?
March 30, 2010
they'll be on a different list: Classic Foreign Films I love that will include some from Asia. I wanted this to be a more modern list.
