About Bat 7048 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. We are the night – truly exceptional modern vampire film from Germany. Everything about it is great, casting, story, effects, music. Stylish, funny & sexy. I have become mildly obsessed with it.

  2. Personnel I love the Filipino horror film Feng Shui. It just feels different to the normal Asian horror with a great story. A mirror brings the owner luck & fortune but with each win, some close the owner dies. Imaginative & creative. If you can forgive the budget it is defiantly worth checking out ????

  3. La Vampire Nue by Jean Rollin, sexy and fascinating at the same time with the usual hint of surrealism expected from JR.

  4. The Spanish horror film the Orphanage is my favourite. There was and is something odd and memorable about children in horror films.

  5. Oh, there are loads but the first one that pops into my head is the Spanish zombie film [REC]. Mainly because it’s so freaking good but also because it seemed to come from nowhere and, unusually, the sequels were pretty good too (mainly the 2nd one). We loved it so much that, when we visited Barcelona a few years ago, we went to the actual apartment building where it was filmed.

  6. Battle Royale – the original and inspiring classic (let’s forget about the disappointing sequel!). Just a brilliant premise, well played out by the ensemble cast..and some wonderful gruesome deaths!

  7. La Casa Muda – The Silent House, Uruguayan film that is truly scary – and exceptional cinematography.

  8. My favourite foreign horror film is martyr because they coldness and sadness of the film was terrible .They have just put out an american remake which is terrible compared to the original

  9. Japanese film “Ju-On: The Curse” scared the sashmi out of me far more than it’s western made counterpart!

  10. I would have to nominate the Japanese film “Battle Royale”. I saw it on TV a few years ago and recently bought the DVD. A great plot that was well acted by the young cast showing the brutality of what fear can do to a perfectly rational human being.

  11. The Vanishing (Dutch original) – one of the creepiest films with such a sense of foreboding and an ending that it is truly disturbing

  12. The original The Ring. The lack of language understanding combined with the video made it extra jarring and scared the ! out of me

  13. Let the Right One In – a well directed and surprisingly well acted film. You know you’ve got a good film when you can follow even without knowing the language.

  14. Ringu: genuinely scary and and rough enough around the edges to suggest a “real” story put to celluloid.

  15. the top 5 horror films of all time are
    1 the exocist
    2 salem lots ( david soul version)
    3 the ring
    4 the grudge
    5 dawn of the dead

  16. Haute tension or switchblade romance as its otherwise known – absolutely brutal film loved it and still alex aja’s best!

  17. One of my favourites that I just watched recently is Angst. It’s scary as hell. The actors performances are incredibly believable (especially the lead). The music is great. I highly recommend it.

  18. Dead Snow, very atmospheric, edge of your seat scary whilst still managing to be deliver total tongue in cheek black humour.

  19. A l’interieur (inside) from 2007. Incredibly effective and brutal, Dalle is great, it’s quite small-scale but you become incredibly invested in the stakes. One of the best of the French extremity of the 00s.

  20. Eyes without a face 1960 it’s full of twists and he really gets under your skin but then again I’m an oldie is goldie kinda girl

  21. Trolljegeren.Trollhunter is really unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.The movie is so whimsical and humorous, while still maintaining its creep factor.

  22. Ong-Bak Warrior King,if you love martial art movies this is the one to watch with Tony Jaa, I think as good as Bruce Lee.

  23. None. If i don’t understand the language what is the point in watching the movie? Ok they have captions on but its never enjoyable watching a movie and reading captions , now be honest, is it??

  24. Les diaboliques (I think it was released as “The fiends” in the UK). It came out in 1955 and is in black and white but is more compelling than any of the more contemporary horror films. This film is a masterclass in suspense with definite shades of Hitchcock.

  25. Ju-On The Grudge Japanese horror is far scarier than the English version and is my all time favourite horror movie.

  26. Martyrs is my favourite foreign language horror film. There are only really a few horror films that actually shock me, and Martyrs is one them. Very original, shocking and brutal. Forget about the remake, watch the original French version.

  27. Conjuring – Because it was that scary I jumped and headbutted my girlfriend by accident at the time

  28. Tesis a Spanish language movie from 1996. It’s so scary but it seems so real, and being in a foreign language adds to the fear for me!

  29. Ils (Them) because the antagonists are kept off screen for the most part which made the whole film so much more creepy.

  30. Hmmm, not sure favourite is exactly the word i’d use, but the one that certainly haunts me is A Serbian Film…..disturbing to say the least…

  31. Cronos is a fantastic original horror film.

    Guillermo del Toro is a very talented director and knows how to to get the best out of lesser known actors.

  32. Spoorloos, the original version of The Vanishing and the best. Not horror in the gore sense but definitely so in the uneasiness sense.

  33. Not sure if it counts as a horror film but I loved Pan’s Labyrinth 🙂 If not then I am going for Battle Royale – brilliant concept, great acting and totally gruesome.

  34. Battle Royale. Just great and it doesnt let the book down either which alot of films do when they are adapted from books.

  35. It has to be ‘Let the right one in’ it’s not just gratuitous horror, it is actually a beautiful sweet story x

  36. So hard but as a Japanese obsessive I love Korenenko (probably spelt wrong but translates to Black Cat) its eerie and just really good, Do try and find it if you can,

  37. Argh, I have so many that I love…so its tricky to whittle down to just one. Hmmm…close call between The orphanage and Let The Right One In, but i’m also a big fan of the japanese horrors that were tragically remade into naff American drivel.

  38. Rec is my fave, it was super tense and it was a fresh spin on the genre. The sequels were good but nothing beats the original. The American remake was terrible though, best forgotten

  39. Death Bell – This was my first Korean horror film and the tension of who is going to die next kept me on edge throughout the whole film

  40. the Ring. Proper eerie film and the foreign language gave it an authenticity and mystery that made it almost more believable.
