Asian cinema at its core has always explored themes and included concepts that have baffled Western audiences because for the most part, they have not been able to relate to them. The brand of cinema is called Asia extreme and understandably they pack a lot of gore, bloodshed, and horror, even elements which are considered improbable, mostly because those in the east have been exposed to horrors of enormous proportions like the nuclear blasts in Japan.
The Japanese, Korean and Hong Kong film style can most broadly be brushed with an Asia extreme label, and here is the list of top extreme Asian movies ever made. You can stream some of these extreme movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
15. Miss Zombie (2013)
Directed by Sabu, this film explores a world where zombies are not as other, a force that attacks humans. Instead, they are pets, they have become a normal part of human life. In such a situation Shara a zombie arrives in a cage with instructions not to feed it meat. However, the doctor’s wife, Shizuko feeds her rotten meat. Matters are complicated as Shara is raped by one of the family’s bodyguards. Shara is also subjected to other problems like Kenichi, the youngest member of the family, who takes pictures of her incessantly and a group of youngsters who attack her. The brilliance of the film lies at the moment when Shizuko convinces Shara to turn her own son Kenichi into a zombie after a mortal accident. The sexuality exuded by the grotesque zombie, the themes of love and altruism and the shift in Shizuko from unacceptance to forced acceptance in a moment of hysteria makes the movie an excellent watch.
