Which country has brought us the best horror?

Youve got british movies with the gothic hammer horror, alot of ghost stories, they tend to be more dramatic and have a good storyline and avoid gore.

Whereas some Italian films are similar in dramatic tone ,again some ghost stories, but with a lot more gore, then you have your influential zombie and cannibal movies and giallos.

Americas main contribution seems to be the the Slasher flick.

Now you have australia making some good movies

As well as a few coming out of germany and france.

I think Britiain, America, Australia and Italy have been the most succesfully productive.

No doubt is Italy. Great horror directors Deodato, Fulci, Argento, Lenzi, D'Amato, Bava, Margheriti, and Pasolini. Gotta give major props to the Italians.

I know clive barker directed one. He is up there with Stephen king in writing. He leaves much to be desired as a director though.

Rage, I think you will find Germany started the genre moving, not America.

But it was America who got the modern horror genre moving thanks to German Expressionism.
