Top 10 Tuesday: Foreign Horror Gorefests

What’s Top 10 Tuesday? It’s a new Top 10 List every Tuesday!

This week’s list is a request by one of our new readers, Nick from Long Island, New York. He wanted to see what nasty little foreign horror gems I could recommend, so I obliged and compiled a list that’s sure to please him and the rest of you blood-and- guts lovers out there. Without further ado I present to you 10 Foreign Horror Gorefests!

10. Dumplings (China, 2004)

Do you like Chinese food? Do you find you may have an unhealthy addiction to those scrumptious dumplings? Watch this movie and I promise you’ll be cured. Spoiler alert, they’re not made out of pets.

9. Dead Snow (Norway, 2009)

What’s worse than a zombie? A Nazi zombie, as director Tommy Wirkola recalls saying during the writing stages of Dead Snow. Both films in the series are incredibly entertaining to watch and I highly recommend taking them in if you haven’t already.

8. The Beyond (Italy, 1981)

Lucio Fulci was the godfather of gore in his day, with such films like Zombi 2, House By The Cemetery and City of the Living Dead. The Beyond is no exception, showcasing Fulci’s talent for grossing his audiences out in some pretty unique ways.

7. A Serbian Film (Serbia, 2010)

This movie comes with a substantial warning, having been banned in several countries due to its graphic depictions of pretty much every crime known to man, especially the really, really bad ones. It’s so graphic that the film was investigated for crimes against minors. Seriously, its pretty rough. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

6. Dust Devil (South Africa, 1992)

So this movie doesn’t go overboard with the gore like most of the ones on the list, but it’s a great movie with a great payoff at the end. It’s a cult classic that I definitely recommend watching!

5. Suicide Club (Japan, 2001)

Before M. Night Shyamalan made his mass weird suicide film, Japan gave us Suicide Club. This is a seriously disturbing movie, and you should seriously see it if you’re in the mood for a lot of blood and flesh. Seriously.

4. Let the Right One In (Sweden, 2008)

The original is so much better than the 2010 American remake, Let Me In, which is actually a pretty damn good film. The scene below is both bloody and beautiful, a true testament to the film as a whole.

3. Taxidermia (Hungary, 2006)

This film isn’t so much a horror as it is a metaphorical retelling of Hungary’s history from World War I to present, but the gore definitely places it firmly on my list!

2. Dagon (Spain, 2001)

American horror icon Stuart Gordon directed this gem of a film, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s short story by the same name; however the plot follows that of The Shadow Over Innsmouth much more closely.

1. Frontier(s) (France, 2007)

Aside from making the list for being gory, Frontier(s) is a pretty solid movie. The social commentary is extremely relevant and the pacing makes for a nice ride.

Well that wraps it up for this week’s Top 10, have a bloody good week and see you next Tuesday!
