Hey there, /a/
I just picked this up the other day and found it to extremely disappointing.
Can anyone suggest some decent horror manga?
Uzumaki and Gyou
Is anon hungarian?
Bio Meat. It has people being eaten by mutant headless turtles.
No, I'm American. Why do you ask?
FRANKEN FRAN. DO YOU READ IT!?
Fuan no Tane
then you won't find japanese horror scary.
no such thing as a scary manga, junji itoh's crap is trippy and awesome but not scary
Cause' in Hungary this manga just came out, and I thought you might be.. I read it, but I didn't liek it either..
You should read Fuan no Tane..
not apply only to american, My Friend and Iin b4 anon doesn't have friend etc watch Ring movie and we both cry out tears of lol.
best answer. seriously if you want to be scared go grab a high rated chiller or horrer flick at blockbuster. Japanese people are afraid of silly and stupid things like the number 4.
Going to have to agree.
It's all there if you want to read something incredibly fucked up, but few things are still actually scary.
Hate to break it to you, but the only good horror is short stories.
Japan fails at horror because they just tell campfire stories and call it scary. Hollywood fails at horror because they just run people through meat grinders and call it scary.
lately thats the trend at least but there used to be good horror flicks.
Japanese don't fear the number 4, they have a superstition that it's bad luck.
Just like 13 in the western world.
Dark Metro is a silly name.
it's all the same shit
You were a child then. You saw those movies through the eyes of a child.
Take off your nostalgia glasses and look again.
Also, for people who say japanese don't know horror, go marathon Siren, Silent Hill and Fatal Frame.
no I'm just an old anon, before the saws and the hostels there was a time when slasher flicks were intellegent were you liked killers like hannabal lecter.
also besides the atmospheres those games stories are not frightening at all. (at least fatal frame and silent hill, never played siren)
Those are all games, which for obvious reasons are far more immersive. Add in the recent graphic updates, and you have a recipe for horror that may actually be effective. (Especially considering that Metroid Prime 2, which isn't even a horror game, was scarier than the last 3 "horror" movies I saw.)
I never said it was I just wanted to use an example everyone would get.
Silence of the Lambs wasn't horror.
Serial killers flicks are NOT intelligent.
I beg to disagree
Awesome flick, one of a kind.
Fuan no Tane isn't scary at all
weeaboo's will argue jap horror is better because its jap, americunts will argue its better becuase its american. There are good horror stores from both sides and neither is better or worse.
>>11532295 There are no good horror stores from either side
I was waiting for Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, or Maniac...
Guess I am the oldfag then.
american horror = gore or shitty japanese remake
japanese horror = ring remakes
horror is for scaring girls at theaters so they'll jump on you and for freaking you out as a kid. I have to say the shitty violent flicks like saw do a great job at making a girl want to bury her head in your chest.
those are great too but I was going for a newer movie
or you learn she's a hot topic freak when she starts getting into it and you know its time to break up.
Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service
Not hugely scary but they're good reads.
