10 Fantastic Asian Horror Films You Must See Before You Die
5. A Tale Of Two Sisters (2003)
Korean fairy tales are dark enough to turn the Brothers Grimm into cowering wrecks, if A Tale Of Two Sisters is anything to go by.
Based on The Story of Rose and Lotus from local folklore, this 2003 offering is a family-drama, wrapped in a psychological thriller with added supernatural horror in case the wicked stepmother doesn't s**t you up enough.
A Tale Of Two Sisters has everything a horror hound could ever ask for - suspense, tension, chills and a bucketload of gore. Sure, the story is convoluted thanks to a late plot twist but it's nothing a repeat viewing won't fix.
Viewers will probably want to skip the cupboard scene the second time around. Anyone who has experienced its sheer trauma will know what we're talking about.
