Turning Asian Into American?

How Hollywood Ruins Asian Horror

It goes alot deeper than CGI I think. Any modern movie from Asia has trouble translating properly into "American".

Could you imagine Bollywood movies where they sing and dance about forbidden love over and over again being popular in the US? The only forbidden stories allowed are West side Story and Romeo and Juliet. Those two films are allowed to be remade over and over and beaten to death.

There are too many aspects to a Japanese horror flick that Americans don't get. Two main themes are ghosts and reincarnation. Two thing that I would guess less then 50% of Americans believe in or understand.
