I've heard that Host is a great monster movie.

If you like psychological mystery thrillers... then I HIGHLY recommend Mother. A lot of critics say its at the level of Alfred Hitchcock. I really enjoyed the movie and the main actress was superb.

wow, you listed oldboy and sympathy for mr. vengeance and left out the best installment of the three, lady vengeance.

personally, i didn't care for the end of oldboy(rest of the movie was great), and i thought mr vengeance was a bit slow. lady vengeance however was brilliant through and through.

one way to find them is to just go on netflix and browse the "foreign horror" section. they have a pretty decent selection to get started with.

Is there a specific order to the three movies? (Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Lady Vengeance)

no. even though they call them a "trillogy" they aren't such in the conventional sense(continuity of story/characters). it's the theme of revenge that connects them. to be honest, i'm not sure why they refer to them as a trillogy but they do.

The Eye is pretty good, about a girl who starts to see ghosts after having an operation to get her sight back.

Also Dark Water, from the same guy who made Ringu. Its about a mum and daughter who move into an old apartment. Not much actually happens for most of the movie (I don't think I've seen so many people walk out on a film in the first hour) but it really builds up a sense of uneasiness and then wham, hits you with the fear in the last 20 minutes. Definitely would be in my top 10 list of favourite horror movies.

I think I read somewhere that Spielberg wanted to remake Oldboy with Will Smith in the lead role but couldn't get the film rights.

I also recommend The Host, I thought it was pretty funny too.

Nightmare Detective
Battle Royale
Suicide Club (I thought this was a bit funny)
A Tale of Two Sisters

Audition? Not really your typical asian horror, but it has some pretty messed up stuff. It's what got me into Takashi Miike's stuff like Ichi the Killer. He also did an episode for The Masters of Horrors series. It didn't make it to television for reasons I'll decide not to mention, but worth checking out.

two of my personal favorites;
Acacia
And Infection

Both of them are kind of obscure but are totally worth the watch.
Infection is a psych-thriller that takes place in a hospital, the japanese name is Kansen

And Acacia is another Psych-thriller about a couple who adopted a child.. i dont remember all of it. but both movies are good stuff.

I Saw the Devil is superb, probably going to be my movie of the year!

Good horrors are The Eye, Ring, Dark Water, Shutter and Re-cycle.

This is the next movie in my Netflix queue. It has the guy from Oldboy so I'm really looking forward to watching it.

I liked Jyourei ( actress ghost) and it's by the same guy that did ringu or Juon.

It creeps me out so bad I can't look in the mirror or go pee.

Just don't watch the Hollywood remake. All J horro hollywood remakes suck.

Saw "Thirst" recently in Film 4's vampire season. Its a Korean horror written and directed by the same guy that did Oldboy, about a priest who's given a blood transfusion and becomes a vampire with a crisis of conscience. Pretty gory in the last half hour, but also some moments of really dark humour. Worth watching out for.
