A good friend of the Scariest Things, Co-Organizer of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and the Portland Horror Film Festival, Gwen Callahan gives us her Top 25 Horror films with some Asian Horror flair!

As co-Director of the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival and co-founder of Portland Horror Film Festival, I watch A LOT of horror films! My background is in art and literature, but I have loved cinema since I fell asleep to Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the drive-in as a small child. As half the team behind Sigh Co. Graphics and Arkham Bazaar, I make a lot of things and have great respect for the craft of filmmaking.
