I would feel comfortable counting ISTD as a horror film.

I'd argue that if ISTD is horror, so is Old Boy.

It's as much a horror film as The Silence of the Lambs. There are horror elements, but I would call it a police thriller.

After reading up on I Saw The Devil some more I'm removing it from consideration. Don't worry folks, I'm a huge Jee-woon Kim fan, I'll review it at some point.

Can't wait.

#1: Day Of The Dead (1985) - problematic but underappreciated Romero. * * *
#2: Funny Games (1997) - I like this more than the original. The divide widens with each passing day. * * *
#3: Repulsion (1965) - very disappointed. * *
#4: Cat People (1942) - also in my marathon
#5: Peeping Tom (1960) - reviewed for my Top 100 marathon, but mine is an unpopular opinion. * * 1/2
#6: Vampyr (1932) - watched recently. This will be an interesting review. * * *
#7: Hausu (House, 1977) - also in my marathon
#8: Les Yeux Sans Visage (Eyes Without A Face, 1960) - pointless. The emperor has no clothes.  ;)  * 1/2
#9: Let Me In (2010) - didn't hate it, though with how much you like the original... * * *
#10: Haute Tension (High Tension, 2003) - Also highly overrated, and that's before the ending. * 1/2
#11: The Changeling (1980) - Great, atmospheric ghost story. This one got to me. * * * 1/2
#12: L’uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (1970) - Interesting but not that good. * * 1/2
#13: Possession (1981) - haven't seen. feel like I'll hate it.
