10 Absolutely Terrifying Chinese Horror Movies

Although the cinematic wave of East Asian horror in the west seems to have passed since the 2000s, that does not mean films from that region still don't hold up or lack the same merit. In truth, a number of them are even better now that any resentment towards the trend of importing and remaking Asian horror has dissipated.

Like their neighboring regions and countries, China and other territories look to folklore and native culture when penning horror. Even with apparitions and other ghoulish fiends present, the variety in general Chinese horror is more surprising than expected. And these ten specific Chinese-language horror movies are absolutely terrifying.

10 Dr. Lamb (1992)

An unhinged taxi cab driver gives in to his bloodlust and murders various women whenever it rains. His perversion does not end there as he enjoys photographing his grisly accomplishments. Now, an inspector is hot on his tail.

Truth be told, Dr. Lamb is more kooky than creepy. The imagery and execution are both so excessive that you won't be that scared. But this underseen 1992 thriller deserves to be seen by a wider and hopefully more appreciative audience today.

9 Corpse Mania (1981)

Although Kuei Chih-Hung's other horror movies like Hex are supernatural, this little-seen 1981 flick is less fantastical. In Corpse Mania, the employees at a high-end brothel are the target of a homicidal killer who gets a bit too close to his victims' post mortem.

Corpse Mania is quite depraved because of the direction it takes and how far it's willing to sink morally. However, the story is elevated by giallo inspired aesthetics and intrigue. It's a beautifully, chilly serial killer thriller that is far better than it ever should be.

8 Love Massacre (1981)

The chances of finding a good copy of Patrick Tam's elusive Love Massacre are slim to none. There is virtually no known effort at bringing international fans a remastered much less watchable version of this heralded arthouse slasher. This Hong Kong slasher is a drastic and beautiful departure from the industry's approach to horror at the time.

In Love Massacre, a college student named Ivy is becoming more and more paranoid as the days pass. She's emphatic that someone is after her. Stalking her. But no one — not even her concerned boyfriend — believes her. Unfortunately, Ivy is right. And it might be too late to save her now.

7 Bless this House (1988)

It might appear strange to include a horror-comedy, but there's more to Ronny Yu's 1988 ghoster Bless This House than meets the eye. In the film, we see a family vacation at the patriarch's boss' home. As they stay there, something sinister within the walls manifests and scares the family.

To the hardened horror fans who do not want their frights mixed with humor, Bless This House will be a challenge. It suffers a lot from localized Hong Kong slapstick that was popular throughout the 1980s and a good part of the 1990s. Once that comedic buildup is out of the way, though, Yu's film has some menacing moments.

6 Seeding of a Ghost (1983)

The Shaw Brothers' 1983 movie Seeding of a Ghost is not for the fainthearted. It's considered one of their best horror efforts, but fans do admit it isn't the more fast-paced of their works.

In the film, a Hong Kong taxi cab driver is cursed after he runs over the wife of a sorcerer. The curse leads to the driver's wife being attacked by lowlife criminals. With no other choice, the husband goes on hands and knees to the sorcerer, begging for the hex to be lifted. Instead, the vengeful warlock has other plans in store for the man.

5 Dumplings (2004)

Fruit Chan shocked and intrigued viewers with this psychologically gruesome horror parable about those aiming to look ageless. Dumplings originated as part of the 2004 East Asian anthology Three... Extremes, which is a sequel to the 2002 film Three. However, the Hong Kong-based segment Dumplings was expanded into a feature-length film and then re-released on its own. The endings do differ, by the way.

RELATED: 10 Asian Slashers That You Never Heard Of (But Need To Watch Right Now)

In Dumplings, an affluent woman feels as if her life is falling apart. Not only is her husband cheating on her with a young masseuse, she feels unattractive. So, she eats a highly sought out dumpling that contains an ingredient that's said to rejuvenate consumers. That ingredient, however, is taboo.

4 Silk (2006)

As a scientist tries to harness the energy of spirits, he and his colleagues find a child's ghost whose power may be the key to an anti-gravity device he has been experimenting with. To harvest the young specter's energy, though, they dive into why he was murdered in the first place.

The Taiwanese ghoster Silk has a fairly out-there concept, but it definitely helps the movie stand out from others. The premise alone will engross viewers. And, in addition, the mystery of the young spirit will keep them glued to the screen.

3 Rigor Mortis (2013)

An actor on the verge of ending his own life learns that his entire apartment block is home to a vampire hunter and other supernatural creatures.

This 2013 Hong Kong movie produced by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) pays tribute to the classic horror movie series Mr. Vampire, which is credited for the "hopping vampire" trend from yesteryears. It even stars some of the same cast, including Anthony Chan, Siu-ho Chin, Billy Lau and Richard Ng. The Hollywood Reporter said that Juno Mak's debut movie is "a lavish, heavy-handed retreading and reinvention of Hong Kong and Japanese horror-film tropes, saved from clinical inhumanity by its veteran cast."

2 The Eye (2002)

The Pang Brothers gained international acclaim after releasing this supernatural tale. In The Eye, a blind musician is offered the gift of sight again after a transplant procedure. There's a consequence of her regained vision, though. The woman has the uncanny and frightening ability to see ghosts. If she wants to get rid of this affliction, she must research the source of her donor.

While The Eye does not shirk tropes, it does present them in a way that feels more fresh than not. Its lead, Angelica Lee, is captivating as she pulls off an emotional role that seals the deal on why The Eye is toted as a modern classic in Chinese-language horror.

There was also an English-language remake starring Jessica Alba that received mixed reviews.

1 Dream Home (2010)

Lai-Sheung is an unhappy woman burdened with caring for her ill grandfather and her brother. All she wants is to own an apartment by the water, but, unfortunately, the state of Hong Kong's housing market is interfering with Lai-Sheung's chances. To escape her depressing life, she comes up with a cutthroat way to achieve her lofty goal.

Dream Home is a slasher movie on the surface, but once you look past that, you see a sad story about a woman whose life has all but been destroyed by a cruel hand of fate. Her desperation is palpable to anyone whose aspirations have become smaller over time.

Classic Hong Kong horror movies

Dumplings (2004)

Don't be fooled by the unassuming title of this movie. Dumplings' true appeal lies in its niche style, employing nauseating rather than jump-scare horror. Unlike typical Chinese horror flicks with long-haired ghosts clad in a white robe, the film trades on the disturbing acts of chasing beauty.

The story follows middle-aged former actress Mrs Li (Miriam Yeung) and her extreme approach to retaining her youth in order to keep her husband interested. Through contacts, she meets Aunt Mei (Bai Ling), a former gynaecologist who uses aborted fetuses as filling for dumplings – apparently the secret to the fountain of youth. The two begin scheming to attain the best quality ingredient for their dumpling fillings and – we'll leave the rest to your imagination. Needless to say, this will turn you off from dumplings for quite a while.   

The Eye (2002)

Having a pair of healthy, working eyes is what many people take for granted, but not for 20-year old violinist Wong Kar Mun (Lee Sin-Je), who had finally regained her eyesight after a successful cornea transplant operation. However, troubles follow when she starts seeing apparitions and experiencing ghostly encounters. One of the most unforgettable scenes in the entire movie is the famous elevator scene where Kar Mun encounter the ghost of an old man. The slow-motion technique showing the spirit closing in on her while she anxiously waits to get out of the claustrophobic space sure makes a 30-second lift ride seem like a torturous eternity. The movie, which spawned a 2008 Hollywood remake, still makes us think twice about entering an empty lift alone.  


Rigor Mortis (2013)

Hopping zombies, long-haired girls in white robes, kung fu action, and black magic – Rigor Mortis is filled with Asian horror folktales that have just the right amount of terror to keep us on the edge of our seats. A modern twist and tribute to the 1980s Mr Vampire series, the story revolves around the old franchise's co-star Chin Siu Ho, who plays himself in the film as a down-and-out and depressed horror film actor who just moved into a decrepit flat building to make ends meet. His failed suicide attempt ended up with spirits possessing his body. Enters Yau, a retired vampire hunter who helps him exorcise the spirits. Chin Siu Ho later realises that his apartment is haunted by a pair of twin girl ghosts. The movie also extends to feature stories about some of Chin's rather 'eccentric' neighbours and their ghastly stories. The film's slow pace and ghoulish special effects make the movie intense and so poignant that you'd have to fight the uneasiness as you follow through the story. 

The Imp (1981)

Combine Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, and you get The Imp. Yes, the movie revolves around possession, reincarnation, and a sinister plot for an unborn baby. After taking up a job as a night-watch guard at a commercial building, Keung begins to encounter strange incidents, which include his colleagues dying one by one and a malicious imp possessing his unborn baby. Filled with an ominous mood and impending doom, this twisted and disturbing film will have you dripping in cold sweat. 

Troublesome Night (1997)

While this low-budget film is not particularly terrifying, it is definitely one of the most popular and longest horror film series in Hong Kong, spawning 19 sequels between 1997 to 2003. Rather than gory horror elements, this movie centres on strange ghost occurrences in the haunted streets of Hong Kong. It features four loosely connected stories – starting with a teenager's encounter with a mysterious woman near a grave, followed by another story of a character who loses her way while trying to call her husband, then a romantic affair between a girl and a ghost, and finally, the last story sees a group of friends visiting a haunted movie theatre. These comedic horror tales are not exactly the most frightening but they are definitely entertaining to watch. 

Three (2002)

This horror film consists of three ominous segments – MemoriesThe Wheel, and Going Home – by Asian directors from Korea, Thailand, and Hong Kong. While there are no ghosts in the movie, the stories are filled with creepy Asian folktales that explore the supernatural and the dark side of humanity. The Hong Kong story,  Going Home, follows Yu (Leon Lai), and his obsession in preserving the body of his wife in order to resurrect her through Chinese medicine. The movie is filled with disturbing visuals and dramatic plot twists that guarantees a harrowing experience for your ghost festival.

But still I coped with myself, curling my lips contemptuously: Will you rape. I did not expect from you. No, I will not rape. I hope you ask me yourself. I made a grimace, signifying an extreme degree of doubt, and Sasha continued: Actually, this is the condition.

Decided to go on the offensive. Olya - I interrupted her monologue - we have known each other not for the first day and we treat each other well. Could you switch to "you". "I call only close people to" you "!" - like a shot, a short and unambiguous answer sounded for me.
