    I Saw the Devil

    ★★★★½

    'I Saw the Devil' is a gruesome vision, but it is also a sorrowful film. There is a moment at the end, where Jang violently kills a character, but unlike so many other genre films, I felt this death. I was paralyzed by the sheer sickening horror on exhibit here; every person murdered is a life cut short without warning, and this movie somehow depicts that.

    Watch an animated horror movie using your favorite type of animation.

    This is a darker story than Train to Busan, with a tone that Yeong Sang-Ho should surely experiment with in his live-action films. The animation isn't the best, but the dismal atmosphere is worth staying for.

    Watch a horror movie with a haunting musical score that you think might scare my friend.

    Kinski's Count is the most depressed Dracula I've seen so far. The entire film seemed to be about him attempting to fill the gap in his soul, although he actually has none, but still. Nosferatu is an exceptionally stylish film, aesthetically better to any other Dracula film, in my opinion. Kinski is fantastic as the bizarre bloodsucker. Obviously. But Ganz is convincing as well, especially at the end.

    Watch a horror movie from the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list.

    One of the best silent films ever made. It presents a fantastic moral story, raising the scary aspects to simple appendages of the melodramatic, yet never maudlin, message, entirely free of the customary experssionist hyperboles in that era's acting style. Sjöström's acting palette is superb by any standard, and there are some fantastic set pieces, such as the paupers' fight. Exceptional!
