This chapter examines the four different ways in which to look at the transnational dimensions of the contemporary horror film, paying particular attention to relations between Hollywood and its counterpart industries in Asia. These include (i) remakes; (ii) local language co-productions; (iii) regional co-productions; and (iv) films wholly made by one industry and aimed at a specific export market by using the language, actors, and locations of that market.
