Yup, I agree.
I've had a similar discussion with my fiance' recently regarding the status of todays media. Most horror movies now a days are getting a little to detailed for me to watch, and quite honestly, generally lack the sense of any theme or purpose. It generally comes down to senseless killing, with rather disturbing detail of the actual killings, to often in my opinion.
In the United States at least, its become a common trait that people love to watch these movies. But why? Does it scare them, or is it just the passion that some people have to see people dead or being killed? Clearly its both, but I've been disturbed by the amount of people who do like seeing brutal killings and or the results of such. Even more disturbing, the amount of people able to make jokes about these killings afterwards or during, is sick.
Being that my fiance' is Vietnamese, shes grown up with the ability to watch more movies than I have, from Asian origin. For example, "The Eye" was originally a movie made in Asia, but it was remade here in America. Differences do exist.
Several other big names such as, The Ring, Dark Water,The Grudge, One Missed Call, The Departed were remade in the US, after being available in Asia.
Personally I feel Asian films capture the theme better than America's version where its often mass killing, blood, gore, and no good story line to even justify it.
