I am probably being partial, but the new releases form Japan, China, Korea and Thailand are way superior to American movies, in terms of plot, cinematography, cast and acting.
Examples are numerous:
The Ring Trillogy
A tale of Two Sisters
It's not that they're better or worse, it's that they're different.
If you only ever watched Asian movies, you'd find them pretty repetative. Same goes for Hollywood. Also, you're only picking out some of the better horror movies. There's loads of crap that comes out here, too.
