    Question Mark

    I am requesting of anyone knows any similar films to these japanese horror ones:

    The Grudges
    Ringu's
    Dark Water
    The Eye/The Eye 2

    I quite like this type of horror and does anybody recommend any films that have the same style of it?

    Don't just limit yourself to Japanese horror films:

    Tale of Two Sisters (Korean) is pretty much a given if you like these sort of films. It's not very often that a film scares me like this one.

    Shutter (Thai) is another genuinly scary film that only the Asian film makers seem able to pull off.

    No, only one of those he listed is Japanese.

    Edit: You're a couple weeks too late on 3...Extremes, you could have seen it at the Dobie theater.
