Tormented (2011)
A young teacher witnesses her young step brother kill a rabbit and then things get quite strange

This was a nicely done wtf-type mindbender with moments of creepiness and art. A little too confusing to be great though

I-ut saram (2012)
A young girl is abducted at night taken to an apartment and killed. We follow the intertwined stories of various people associated with her, her step mother, the neighbour that killed her, a pizza delivery boy, the apartment blocks security guard, a local thug another mother and her young daughter

Really well done thriller with supernatural elements. It was almost heartbreaking in places and had some good twisty moments. Possibly the main fault is the jumping around from flashback to flashback

Schoolboys and girls go on the net and play a game of Creepy Hide And seek which involves making a voodoo-like doll to kill people

This was slow and a tad confusing but unusually for a film it actually improved in the second half and started to become a bit creepy and almost reached Kairo (Pulse) levels.The use of sound and the soundtrack was actually really good imho...shame about the rest

One actress was great looking but this has nothing new to offer

The Uninvited (2003)
A man sees 2 girl ghosts sitting at his table and gets drawn into the world of a woman who witnessed a child murder

This would have been far better if they picked up the pace and could easily have been shortened - the subplot with the guys upcoming marriage seemed pointless to me

Treat this more as slow paced drama about child murder rather than horror and you may enjoy it

The Sleepless (2012)
A man and 2 women find themselves in an isolated cabin/house within woods. When they try to leave they find they cannot get past the woods and time has frozen

This horror aka Two Moons started well but didnt seem to go anywhere... and seemed to have absolutely NO payoffs,NO scares NO gore, NO horror really. Its kind of interesting though...and plays a bit like a Twilight Zone episode

Shame as the first half is set up quite well

Ha-wool-ling (2012)
A female detective joins an all male team as they start to uncover mysterious deaths linked to child prostitution

I thought this was going to shift from a police thing into a fantasy werewolf flick or at least have some supernatural element...but no...Its an ok thriller if you can get past the laughable murder "weapon" - Actress Na-yeong Lee looks absolutely great and the blatant sexism running through the flick is a nice realistic touch

A young woman who is pregnant takes a taxi to see her mother but as it is leaving a young man joins as a passenger - When he predicts that the car will stop, the driver and the young woman find themselves in the middle of the country after blacking out with the young man nowhere to be found. The woman decides to get help but encounters increasingly bad experiences form people

It drifted in and out of interesting for me - In places it did get quite nasty...TBH this is more of a fantasy/philosophy film. A short film of this would have been good but this dragged

A successful but suicidal actor moves into a run down apartment block and into an apartment where a murder has taken place

This film was a mish mash of ideas which could have worked well together but didnt really. Its very well shot and the special effects are top-notch ...its weird...its different... but it just doesnt work as a horror...it just did not gel for me

Very artistic though and worth a single viewing for that alone

A group of students accidentally kill a fellow student when a prank goes wrong

This was the least Asian feeling Asian horror I have seen and was very US in content and feel...despite all that it was largely enjoyable in a dopey way - Basically I Know What You Did Last Summer with a Korean cast

Ladda Land (2011)
A family move into a new home on a well to do estate Laddaland and their suburban dream life quickly turns into a nightmare when a murder takes place and their daughter sees ghosts

This was pretty well done horror from Thailand though the jumpscares relied purely on brute force, however there were nice moments of misdirection and suspense - its also a tale of being too ambitious and being screwed over financially - a tragic ending

Cool list, lots of good recs.
Since you're into asian horror, check out Dream Home. It's a really original slasher movie.
And thanks for the list vote.
