Well, after my documentary tournament flopped hard, I figured I'd try another one, this time in the spirit of Halloween. Since I already did the mega horror tournament a few years back, this time around its a tournament for the ever growing Asian horror movement. If people are interested this time around, everyone gets two automatics, four noms, and four seconds. Also, even if its just horrorish like Battle Royale, it can be included. It doesn't have to be a straight horror film, just have elements. We'll try and make it to 32 films.

My autos

Kaïro
Uzumaki

My noms

Audition
Onibaba
Suicide Circle
Gozu

Well I haven't seen Blind Beast yet, but I have seen (and own a DVD) of A Page of Madness.
I didn't initially consider Madness a horror film, but I suppose it is. Posted Image
