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.

For today's class: the supernatural. Ghosts. Evil spirits. Lost souls seeking vengeance. Every civilization -- in an attempt to explain the unexplainable -- has created superstitious tales. This collection of movies demonstrates that no matter where you are in the world, some scares are universal, and no matter what language you speak, a strange noise coming from a dark room will always be very creepy.
