To celebrate unique chillers and thrillers you may not have seen, Moviefone is spotlighting the best foreign horror films in a variety of categories. If you're up for a good scare -- and don't mind reading the occasional subtitle -- then consider this a world history lesson.

Today's lesson: vampires and werewolves, two mythic creatures whose beastly attacks have terrorized generations of audiences around the world. In America these legends of folklore are portrayed by emo teenagers arguing over who can pout their lips the hardest. And our second-best scenario (Kate Beckinsale starring in a 'Matrix' rip-off) isn't much better. But these five films from around the world highlight the monstrous potential of these two creatures -- with plenty of fangs, blood and torn limbs.
