A Tale of Two Sisters (2003) 

This film is about two sisters who, after spending time in a mental institution, returns home only to deal with a cruel stepmother, ghosts and family’s dark secrets. It was the highest-grossing movie of its time. An American remake of this movie was released in 2009, The Uninvited. I would recommend watching the original for the acting, cinematography and overall quality. 

Thirst (2009) 

The story follows a priest who is brought back to life as a vampire. This movie won the Cannes Film Festival in 2009 and touted as one of the sexiest horror movies of all time. But that doesn’t make it any less scary. 

The Wailing (2016) 

The film follows a cop who investigates a series of killings in a small village and fights the supernatural to save his infected daughter. This one is an excruciating horror film that will keeps you on the edge throughout the movie. 

Train To Busan (2016) 

This action-horror movie is about a virus outbreak that turns the living into zombies. There is much more to this movie than horror. It shows the emotional development of the characters that make you feel more connected to them.
