    IMO the Japanese make some of the best horror films, with great subtlety and suggestion. Some of my favourites are:





    and more recent, and very disturbing, though I'm not sure you could classify it as 'horror'

    I fully agree, as do the Italians. Dario Argento, for example, has produced some great stuff, such as 'Susperia', etc.

    Problem is, I *HATE* subtitles! With the latter, it's not a problem, as I speak the language, but if a 'foreign film' isn't in that, or French, and I've got to sit there reading the bottom of the screen to get what's going on, then it's a turn off...

    Get the Japs to make the same films in English (as for most of them it's their second language anyway), and I'd be right in there!

    not a keen liker of subbies either, although if film is a good un, they tend to kinda disappear somehow, and film can maybe be better for it. no idea how this works tho

    Subtitles don't bother me. Some of the best films ever have subtitles - 'Ran' for example.

    Fair enough, for me they're an annoying distraction, but dubbing is even worse!

    inclined to feel that way with most myself as you have to concentrate too much on reading them and they are often difficult to read. but ive seen a few films i enjoyed with the titles. In fact i have the English and German versions of Das Boot and i used to prefer the German

    "Ran"? Don't recall it, but the name reminded me of 'Run Lola Run', remember that?
