International horror month goes dark

October 28th, 2010 · No Comments

In the month of October, I uncovered my eyes to take a look at nine recent horror films from eight different countries. I stayed away from France and Japan — two nations with robust genre film operations — because what I’d seen there appeared far too flagrant for my tastes. Another trend I noticed was no big shocker: the U.S. film industry has all the financing in the world, but for a few dollars less, filmmakers elsewhere maintain the creative freedom to produce work that is far more exciting.
