For the past decade, East Asian horror films have fascinated global film enterprises, cinephiles, and horror fans. On the one hand, a succession of Hollywood remakes, from The Ring (dir. Gore Verbinski, 2000) to Don’t Look Up (dir. Fruit Chang, in production), and the critical acclaim given to such films as Oldboy (dir. Park Chan-wook, South Korea, 2004) at European international festivals seem to vividly testify to the vigor of horror filmmaking in the region. Our goal in examining these films is twofold. First, we will locate them at the intersection of specific national/regional cinematic traditions and the aesthetics and politics of globalized film culture. We will also pay attention to the intra-Asian cultural flows and networks, going beyond the traditional framework of the West/East exchange. Second, we seek to examine East Asian horror as horror. In other words, we will closely look at these films in light of theoretical issues that have been central to the study of horror in the field of film studies, such as spectatorship, family, gender and sexuality, the fantastic, and the uncanny. In order to highlight such issues, we will also watch selected films and clips from North American and European horror traditions, with which East Asian filmmakers have been in dialogue.
