Taiwanese Horror Movies ( made in Taiwan , not main land China )

Asian Horror Movies

Asian Horror Movies are becoming very popular, all over the world. Nobody knew about them 10 years ago, but with the success of The Ring, and The Grudge, America really started to take notice of foreign horror films.

Most Asian horror movies are unique to their country. Most Japanese Horror movies deal with ghosts hell bent on revenge. Korean Movies normally included some kind of psychic / ghost activity. Some are much more gruesome then others while some also conform more to the thriller category. One of these unique kind of movies are Taiwanese Horror.

They may not all conformed to 1 Similar theme. I find that Taiwanese horror movies seem to involve a lot of police/crime mysteries. Here are a few of the most popular Taiwanese Horror Movies.

I hope you can find at least one you will enjoy!

This had a pretty cool story line. Kinda unique, kinda reminds me of The eye, in some ways. But for the most part it is its own movie. Has a few good scenes that caught me off guard. Excellent movie if you want some dark horror with a unique twist.

You can despise the rich. But you'd die, to be one of them.
