The film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” might be killing it in the box office, and Hollywood has given us more than a few American horror classics, but when it comes to terrifying flicks, one should never discount Asian filmmakers’ ability to seriously spook an audience. Films like “Ringu” and “Ju-on” inspired movie creepers like “The Ring” and “The Grudge” and made Asian horror a go-to category for Halloween entertainment. Here are six Asian films — some sure to make your skin crawl, some with a bit of good old camp — available to stream on Netflix for when the midnight hour is close at hand:

“The Silenced” (2015)

A young Korean girl in the 1930s transfers to a remote boarding school, where she starts to notice suspicious things happening to the other students.

“Horror Story” (2013)

American horror movie characters don’t get a monopoly on bad decisions — seven unassuming friends make the horrendous decision to spend the night in a haunted hotel in this Indian horror flick.

“Office” (2014)

An unassuming office worker is found to be guilty of murdering his wife, and he’s turned his sights on his co-workers. It’s up to a detective to stop the carnage in this Korean slasher-thriller.

“P” (2006)

A young Thai girl turns to prostitution to help her impoverished family, but when a customer dupes her, she uses black magic to get revenge.

“Ludo” (2015)

A night of scandalous fun in a closed down mall turns into a nightmare when four friends run into a mysterious couple who invite them to play a cursed game of Ludo.
