Japanese horror is celebrated for its unique theatrical adaption of the traditional horror genre. Unlike the cutthroat, jumpy style of the U.S., Japanese directors tend to focus on tension, usually centering round ghosts, monsters or poltergeists.

So much gore. So much blood. So much love. Never change Japan.
