Annika Marx is one of the directors of DREAD’s upcoming horror anthology death december! Annika’s death december The segment is called “Christmas Corpse”, and it’s a tribute to J-Horror (not only stylistically, but also because it deals with suicide caused by burnout; the Japanese created a word for it because that it happens so often: “Karoshi”).

death december Synopsis:
A collection of 24 films that takes a look at the dark side of the holiday season. 24 international directors with the most diverse ideas and styles; connected by short, animated segments that deal with the Advent calendar itself.

It is therefore normal that the theme of Annika’s Dread X List is J-Horror films that have not yet had a remake! Read her selections below.


Uzumaki a.k.a Spiral (2000)

Manga adaptation by one of Japan’s most creative creators. A real source of motivation and inspiration for filmmakers. Overload of creativity and non-stop quirk.
