List Rules Only Asian horror movies that are currently streaming on Netflix

Your nightmares will be subtitled tonight. These are the best Asian horror movies on Netflix Instant, ranked by scary movie fans. The Asian horror movies streaming on Netflix represent some of the creepiest in the genre. From gore fests to psychological thrillers, this list of Netflix Asian horror movies has everything it takes to inspire goosebumps and sleepless nights.

Japanese horror movies are especially abundant on Netflix. While Kinji Fukasaku's incendiary 2000 adaptation Battle Royale isn't spooky, the story of teens forced to fight to the death is certainly horrific. The film has been widely cited as an inspiration for the thematically similar The Hunger Games, though Battle Royale is far more graphic and disturbing than those American blockbusters.

If Korean horror movies are more your style, then Netflix has you covered with Bong Joon-ho's monster film The Host and the 2016 horror hit The Wailing starring Hwang Jung-min. 

From J-horror to Hong Kong horror, these international scary movies will have you shivering with fear. But which ones are the best Asian horror movies on Netflix? Vote up your favorites and they'll climb to the top of the list. And if we missed a frightening film from across the Pacific, feel free to add it to this list of Netflix Asian horror movies.
