  1. Ring – it’s much scarier in Japanese for some reason.

  2. A Tale of Two Sisters. It’s beautiful, tragic and still creepy as hell!

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ????

  5. Orphanage – great, creepy Spanish horror film

  6. The Raid and I suppose the Raid 2 if originals and sequels count as one!

  7. The Machine Girl (2008) – gloriously crazy Japanese revenge tempura Ninja Yakuza gore

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

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

  10. Ring – its the first one I saw and opened my eyes up to considering others

  11. 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.

  12. Orphanage is a great film keeps you on edge 🙂

  13. Dead Snow: It’s a rollercoaster of fun zombie nonsense

  14. Rec 2 made me hide behind a cushion !

  15. Encounters of the Spooky Kind – great horror comedy with Sammo Hung.

  16. I like the Rec movies they are pretty scary 🙂

  17. The Grudge 🙂

  18. 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!

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

  20. 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

  21. Japanese – Battle Royale.. great film.

  22. The Host, very interesting story and quite dark.

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

  24. 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.

  25. The Grudge

  26. “Let the right one in” – mainly because the main relationship is so well portrayed.

  27. ‘Kwaidan’. An unsettling portmanteau that sticks in your mind. Shudder!

  28. The Orphanage a proper “hairs on the back of your neck” horror film

  29. Dead snow..Just because I love zombie!

  30. I really loved Let the Right One In, I think it was really well made

  31. Battle Royale in Japanese

  32. Dead snow very bloody zombie film

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

  34. The ring was just so creepy and well made must watch it again sometime

  35. the ring – scared the crap out of me

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

  37. It’s got to be the ring

  38. From our Spanish friends, Orphanage, my “Behind the sofa choice”

  39. Orphanage from Spain, very scary edge of the seat enjoyment xx

  40. Rec the first one, very creepy

  41. The Ring – very disturbing film that was superbly made. The Japanese are very good at horror films.

  42. 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.

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

  44. 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

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

  46. Oooh ! Love it!

  47. Ringu so scary

  48. 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.

  49. I like Audition. The way the film turns around is amazing and scary too.

  50. Orphanage – it was so unexpected!

  51. Hideo Nakata’s ‘Ringu’ – ‘timeless terror'(Mark Kermode) I agree.

  52. let the right one in – i felt so invested in the characters

  53. It has to be The Grudge, it blew my mind when I watched it, and really turned me on to world cinema

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

  55. 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.

  56. The original Japanese Ring film – much scarrier!

  57. 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

  58. the ring in Japanese if you ever want a go scare pick this one 🙂 🙂

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

  60. 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.

  61. THE RING, so scary xx

  62. 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??

  63. The Orphanage scary Spanish children!

  64. Pulse as its a very atmospheric and different horror story

  65. I Like the REC series

  66. 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.

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

  68. has to be ringu

  69. audtion japan very gory

  70. The Korean film Thirst, quite gory but funny as well.

  71. The grudge

  72. 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.

  73. dead snow was my fav. remember watching with my fiance ,me giggling and him hiding 🙂

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

  75. French Film ‘Eyes Without a Face’ because it spooks me despite being released in 1960

  76. 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!

  77. The ring so scary

  78. ring

  79. The Ring – it was the first horror I can remember watching!

  80. Martyrs!

  81. Dead snow….very good humour as well as jumpy.

  82. the orphanage – was so freaked out

  83. Ju-On The Grudge – Just extremelly creepy.

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

  85. 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…

  86. REC, great original horror

  87. The original japanese version of “The Ring” which was so much better than the american version

  88. The Grudge. Real scary

  89. REC – Always nice to find an unexpectedly excellent horror film

  90. 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.

  91. Ring, Japanese horror is so different

  92. Let the Right one in, as it was just so much more atmospheric than the American remake.

  93. The Ring , the original is so much scarier x

  94. martyrs, gruesome but great

  95. Dead snow just because it’s funny and it’s got zombies 🙂

  96. Battle Royale, a great concept and beautifully put together!

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

  98. It would have to be Battle Royale- it was scary, and the atmosphere kept you glued to the movie

  99. The Shining. I watched it on French TV (dubbed) and it was still scary

  100. Dog Soldiers – great

  101. Rec as it was nice and gory and made me jump 😛

  102. Battle Royale – gruesome and exciting all at the same time

  103. 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.

  104. Dead Snow – The best Nazi Zombie Norwegian Horror ever made.

  105. The RING when she comes out the TV!

  106. Tombs of the Blind Dead. I love the way the skeleton horses gallop, Really gives me the chills.

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

  108. The Grudge – The Japanese do brooding threat like no one else

  109. a tale of two sisters because i do like a film with a good story line

  110. Dead Snow – What’s worse than zombies ? Nazi zombies of course !

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

  112. 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,

  113. The Audition… it’s a classic!

  114. The Orphanage. Even with subtitles it was SCARY. Loved it.

  115. Martyrs such a good film with a great story and many jumpy parts

  116. 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.

  117. Original Evil Dead – scared me sooo much

  118. Ichi The Killer – there were times where I was watching from behind the sofa!

  119. 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

  120. Ring made me hide behind a pillow

  121. Orphanage is my favourite

  122. 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

  123. The Machine Girl – amazing!

  124. The Orphanage 2007
    The children are scary

  125. Rec 2 I would say!

  126. Orphanage , weird and creepy

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

  128. The Orphanage – scary as hell but also really sad.
